Driving to Puerto Nuevo from San Diego
Take the 5 or 805 freeway south to the U.S. - Mexico border (San Ysidro crossing). Both freeways end at the border so take your pick. After crossing the border, stay in the second lane from the right. Follow the signs that say "Rosarito Beach, Ensenada Scenic Route". This road will take you along the Mexico/U.S. border.
As you come to the top of the hill, move into the right lane. At the bottom of that hill the road will fork Left and Right, take the fork to the right. It is marked with arrows Rosarito/Puerto Nuevo/Ensenada Cuota. (Cuota stand for the Toll Road).
When you get to the first toll booth have your money ready (toll cost about $3). Continue on the road through the second toll booth (another $3). This is just past Rosarito. Proceed another 9 miles where you will find an exit sign marked Puerto Nuevo. Exit here and turn left heading south onto the Carretera Libre (Free Road). Puerto Nuevo is located 2 miles South of the Puerto Nuevo exit on the right hand side. If you reach the New Port Hotel you went too far. If you miss the Puerto Nuevo exit you will get another chance, keep driving until the next exit marked Cantamar. Exit to the right but this time turn right onto Carretera Libre north. Puerto Nuevo will be about 2 miles north on the left.
