Tired of California's Crowded Beaches, a Couple Invests in a Surfside Home in Rosarito Beach, Mexico

Married for eight-years, Brunela and Jaime had two girls, five-year old Sol and Mia who's three. They had no complaints about their house in Vista, California but became increasingly frustrated with the area's crowded beaches, especially Jaime, a lifelong surfer. Longing to create special memories for their girls, and looking for a quiet coastal getaway, Jaime and Brunela decided to use their savings to purchase a second home in Rosarito Beach, Mexico. Not only did they hope to have the ocean at their doorstep, but since Brunela was born in Peru, and Jaime's parents were from Chile, spending time in Mexico would also mean exposing the girls to their Latin roots. But once they put their plan in action south of the boarder, they discovered the area's popularity had pushed the average cost of a beachside two-bedroom home above their $150,000 budget. And to make matters worse, Jaime's desire for the perfect surfer's pad clashed with Brunela's fiscal concerns. Find out if they wipe out or catch a wave when House Hunters International rides to Rosarito Beach, Mexico.
