A must stop! You’ll find the stand with a small counter/bar and about 5 stools. Atmosphere isn’t really a word I’d use to describe it, but “friendly people, great service, great food and great value” definitely are terms I’d use. In all the years we’ve been customers for lunch or a light evening meal, they have never disappointed us. They serve only carne asada (steak) and al pastor (pork) tacos and tort as.
There is, however, a small stand just south of them (K38 Fish Tacos) that does have fish tacos. The one with fish isn’t the same operation as Surf Taco, but you can access it from th
e same parking lot. Their fish and shrimp tacos are excellent.
There is a small market between the two to purchase drinks/beer. Tacos run about $1.10 and tortas are about $3. Try mixing the asada and al pastor to mix things up.
If you don’t stop here during your visit to Baja, you’ll be doing yourself a great disservice. Our family loves Taco Surf so much we bought the original surfing taco sign and hung it in the downstairs bedroom of Endless Summer Villa.
No other taco stand comes close to taste and service. Taco Surf is located 1 kilometer north of Las Gaviotas, in front of the statue of Jesus.
Tacos Baja Jr. seafood restaurant started in a small trailer 15 years ago and has expand to a full service restaurant.
The fish tacos here are the best in Rosarito and Ensenada – both of which are known for fish tacos. Our favorite is the “Quesaron” which is a grilled shrimp taco with melted white cheese and shredded cabbage.
Their “Baja Fish Taco” has a generous amount of grilled fish, a grilled green chile and a small amount of melted white cheese – Totally different from the traditional tacos and every bit as delicious if you crave a lighter, slightly spicy fish taco.
Great service and reasonable prices.
From Las Gaviotas head north to the main part of Rosarito. Baja Taco Jr. will be on your left prior to reaching the Rosarito Beach Hotel and somewhat across the street from the large AM/PM gas station that sits between the toll road and the free road.
The surf break at Las Gaviotas is an exposed reef break that has reliable surf. Autumn and winter are the favoured times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the northeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south. Waves break both left and right and are surfable at all stages of the tide. The best part – It very rarely gets crowded here.
Surf almost perfect waves with No Crowds! Las Gaviotas can be your personal, private Baja surf spot. Stay at Endless Summer Villa or Point Break Villa and surf right outside your door. Plenty of space to store your boards and park your car where it is safe right inside the walled, gated community where there is an hourly, walking patrol of security officers.
The surf conditions are similar to Southern California. During the months of October to April, surfing in Baja, the water temperature ranges between 50 and 60 degrees, so it is always best to wear a full suit and booties. Swells during the winter period typically come from the West to Northwest and are fairly consistent. Summer months offer great surfing with spring suit to trunk conditions with temperatures ranging from high 60’s to mid 70’s.
The Las Gaviotas break, sometimes referred to as “Gavs” is mostly fast power rights (with an occasional lefts) and holds into the afternoon with kelp beds helping just outside the break. The height is head high to double overhead with a regular consistency. The skill required is from beginner to pro. When you stay at Point Break Villa or Endless Summer Villa you can sit on your patio and watch the conditions and head out when you and the break are ready.
