I originally booked at another hotel and they said that because I had not paid for my reservation that they could not honor my booking. (Some hotels in baja are not set up to take payments over the phone or internet) No problem, we moved on and asked a local for a good dog friendly hotel. We stumbled upon Guillermos... More

This bay is so remote that only the true lovers of Mexico go here. There are no tacky tourists to ruin the relaxing vibe. I want to retire here!

Lovely spot. But every time I have gone there it seems to rain. There do not get a lot of rain so this is humorous. Good for whale watching and for fishing. Also just plain a pretty area.

Tripadvisor keeps this as things to do near Ensenada, its not near Ensenada, not even close. Not even a days drive - well maybe - a hard days drive. It very nice, but not really something to associate with Ensenada.

We docked here for only a few hours, and it was almost dark. We just went into the usual port shops and then got back on board ship. Recent crime in the area made us wary.

Classic site in Ensenada ... great place to relax away from the port and city! Had a chance to drive by on a recent trip and it is actually quite nice to view!

We stopped in Baja de Los Angeles for few days on our sailing boat. The village is nice and friendly, good restaurants and a peaceful atmosphere. Few nice beaches on the southern part of the bay. Since the bay is subjected to strong night winds (called the "Elephantes"), we moved in Puerto Don Juan, just few miles away...this is another... More

This is one of those places everyone dreams to visit ... A small fishermen village lost in space and time on a side of a beautiful bay with a chain of uninhabited island which are so tempting to visit. And it's all surrounded by desert where people have been living for thousand years (first, native americans, then spaniards, then gold... More

A bit of a long ride south of Ensenada, L.A. Bay has been isolated for many years from the rest of Baja Cal by a single dirt road link and almost zero accomadations when we arrived dragging our boat behind us. Now there are several Motel-resorts with rooms to rent, food and drink that are more than adequate and charter... More
