This is a place to visit if in Ensenada with extra time. It will take you about 45 minutes to walk through and has some interesting information about the area.

The old hotel is a must see across the main street from where the cruise ships dock.. It takes you back in time when Hollywood stars visited and gambled and did whatever. You can still sense its glory days. My favorite spot inside is the wall that has tiles with names of Hollywood's brightest stars who visited...almost better than watching... More

Carnival Cruise has 3days Get Away departing from Long Beach CA , then go to Ensenada. It's a small town with two Main Streets. Down down area is only 6 or 7 blocks. I enjoyed their beautiful landscape. Even the Stone Chairs in the park are unique , both ends are made by special tiles.

It was great to see the 300 year old, beautifully hand-painted ceiling of the building. The tour guide gave us the history of the building which included classic Hollywood stars like Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez.

Built as a casino during the depression and prohibition, beautiful architecture and woodwork. Interesting paintings in the bar with mixed race couples, probably considered very racy back in the day. I would recommend stopping to take a look around. Also lovely gardens with cactus and succulents.

This building has its roots from the old gangster days. Once owned by Al Capone it is steeped in history and folklore. Inside view the holes in the wall above the casino area where guys watched to make sure nobody was cheating at the tables! Check out the original chandelier hanging in the gaming area, exquisite! These days you can... More

Mexican cultural centers are not what one would expect if you are looking fore an American type of center. It is Mexican. It is interesting and it does, or will, add to your trip to ensenada

We visited this winery as part of the tour so we got VIP treatment. We got a tour on the wine making process that was given by a member of the family that owns the winery. We found out that 50% of the wine in Mexico is made by this winery. After the tour, we were served cheese, wine, olives... More

This was built originally by the Hurst family to be the larger than Monte Carlo. It only made it to #5, but you will be amazed in the detail of the wood designs and artwork throughout the facility.
