After running The West Coast’s Largest Spring Break Event for the past 19 years we’ve definitely learned a few things about how to throw a great party. As we prepare for SWAT’s 20th anniversary, we’re proud to name Rosarito Beach in Mexico’s Baja California our new flagship destination! Rosarito Beach was the home of SWAT Spring Break for several years in our company’s earlier days, and we’ve got some crazy things planned for SWAT Spring Break 2017. With Papas & Beer hosting our signature day and night events and the Rosarito Beach Hotel as our new Headquarters Hotel, we’re turning this Mexican border town upside-down.
We’re going back to where it all started and invading Rosarito Beach for four straight weeks this March, and when we say it’ll be the best trip we’ve ever produced, we mean it like never before. In a matter of words, SWAT Spring Break 2017 in Rosarito Beach will surely be An Experience Unlike Any Other!

Just a few steps off the patio deck is Rosarito Beach, which is where you’re able to rent jet skis, horseback ride, rent ATVs, or parasail. All SWAT travelers will enjoy huge drink specials during both the daytime and at night events, in addition to receiving a free dinner every night at the Papas & Beer buffet.
Deluxe Headquarters • Starting at $299 Per-Person
The Rosarito Beach Hotel has been a mainstay in Rosarito Beach since the early 1920s that grew from a small inn with a few guestrooms to what is now the largest resort and spa in town. With room for over 500 travelers in the Coronado Tower, our new Headquarters Hotel is capable of housing more spring breakers than any other property that we’ve called home. Located right on the beach in front of the famous Rosarito Beach pier, the Rosarito Beach Hotel’s two swimming pools, two restaurants, and four bars are a perfect fit for the ultimate SWAT Spring Break experience. All hotel rooms have balconies overlooking the Pacific Ocean, feature two queen or double-sized beds, and a bathroom with standard amenities.

Safety, Security, & SWAT Staff
SWAT has been producing Spring Break trips in Mexico’s Baja California for nearly 20 years. Since our inception in 1997, the security of our travelers has always been our top priority, and SWAT Spring Break 2017 will certainly be no exception. We work diligently to ensure that our operations in Rosarito are in close concert with the local Mexican government, and our partnerships with the Rosarito Beach Police Department, local Tourism Board, and Hospitality Association are testaments to the emphasis we put on our travelers’ safety.
Our on-site operations team is comprised of travel and event production industry veterans who have over 75 years of combined experience. In addition to our team of local English-speaking operators and vendors, our customer service, operations, and logistics team, along with our private security personnel and first aid team, are entirely American.
As an added safety precaution, and to avoid any nervousness or stress travelers may have while traveling abroad, we strongly encourage all SWAT travelers to take the San Diego border shuttle. All border shuttles to and from Rosarito Beach will be managed by SWAT and all transportation vendors have been thoroughly vetted through our strenuous process.
All travelers re-entering the United States by land must present valid government-issued documents. As of October 1, 2016, the United States Border Protection and Enforcement requires a valid Passport, Passport Card, or enhanced driver’s license to re-enter the United States. In some cases, an original copy of a live birth certificate may be substituted but it cannot be guaranteed. We encourage all travelers to apply for and obtain either a Passport, Passport Card, or enhanced driver’s license to ensure the most expeditious re-entry to the United States. For additional information on the documents required for international travel, please visit the U.S. State Department’s website at www.travel.state.gov.
All package prices listed within this website and throughout the trip registration process are per-person and are based on maximum occupancy room rates (two people per double or queen-sized bed and one person per sofa bed, where applicable.) In other words, when purchasing a SWAT Spring Break 2017 Hotel Package, you are reserving one spot in a hotel room that accommodates four people, NOT an entire hotel room that sleeps four individuals. Upgrades to lower-occupancy hotel rooms are available by contacting our Customer Service team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SWAT does not promote or condone the consumption of alcohol or the use of drugs and/or controlled substances. In accordance with federal, state, and local law, all travelers and event attendees must be 21 years of age in the United States and 18 years of age in Mexico to consume alcoholic beverages. No information found on this website should be interpreted as construing a message otherwise. Please always designate a sober driver and never drink and drive. If you’ve had too much to drink, please let a member of the SWAT Staff know and we’ll arrange a safe and sober ride home for you.
