Bonita is a lovely community situated beside Chula Vista and National City. Bonita means "pretty" in Spanish and if you visit Bonita, you will see why. Bonita is located in the Sweetwater Valley and is surrounded by beautiful hills and mesas. The Sweetwater Reservoir is to the east and around 5 miles of the Sweetwater river flows through the valley. Bonita is located right near the 805 freeway so you can easily get to any other part of San Diego easily.
The houses in Bonita occupy the valley, hills, and mesas, and the price range varies greatly depending on where the houses are located. The larger homes are usually in the hills and can be in small suburbs or tracts and offer amazing views of the valley and reservoir. The average homes are in the valley and no matter what section they occupy, they are usually surrounded by very beautiful trees, bushes, and other plant life. Bonita has always been a great place for the property investor as well due to its desirability.
Horses have always played a large part in Bonita life and there are numerous trails and horse friendly areas for you to enjoy. The Sweetwater Regional Park was enlarged in the 90's and has many trails and even some camping areas for the outdoor enthusiast.

Each August, the famous Bonitafest takes place and people from all over San Diego come to visit the street fair-like atmosphere and enjoy the food and music.
Bonita has very nice weather as it is in between the coastal and desert climates. It doesn't receive the fog of the coastal areas or the heat of the desert areas. This makes for wonderful weather all year long. This also makes Bonita the perfect place for people who like to have gardens and plant flowers.
