Great shopping and fun! Got a swimsuit, t shirt with Ensenada motif and souvenirs! Visited a Buddhist themed store and cafe and the fun filled restaurants and cantinas. Come when the cruises are here in Ensenada that's when the ambiance steps up a notch... There's also upscale shopping and dinning... and wine tastings there, too. Ensenada, here we come!

Hmmm . . . okay. Not my best trip. I have been to Panama City and I guess this is better than that experience. I have not been to Cabo or Mazatlan, but I am thinking that may be a much better experience. I have been four times, all during a cruise. I have not been overly impressed during any... More

This a very great tourist zone in the heart of Ensenada, with a friendly and safe environment able to walk 24/7. With lots of places to visit like shops, restaurants, and bars.

Stay on ship! Nothing here but begging children and merchants chasing you down. Cruise lines take notice and find some where else to dock! Oh yes there was several places to eat and drink but thats it.

Tourist strip ... not the best place to visit Ensenada if you want a good impression! Too many hawkers yelling at you about going into their bar or buying their merchandise.
