The dozen or so blocks north of the Rosarito Beach Hotel abound with the stores typical of Mexican border towns: curio shops, cigar and licores (liquor) stores, and farmacias (where drugs like Viagra, Retin-A, Prozac, and many more are available at low cost and without a prescription). More interesting is Rosarito's traditional carved wooden furniture -- plentiful downtown along Bulevar Benito Juárez -- and pottery, best purchased at stands along the old highway, south of town. A reliable but more expensive furniture shop is Casa Neri (formerly Casa La Carreta), Km 29.5, on the old road south of Rosarito (tel. 619/308-7991 in the U.S., or 661/612-0502; www.casaneri.com), where you can see plentiful examples of the best workmanship -- chests, tables, chairs, headboards, cabinets, and cradles -- and nearly 40 years of family-run custom furniture.
