We were on a Carnival Cruise one day visit to Ensenada Mexico. Like many others we used opportunity to purchase drugs that are sold over the counter. We were a part of a large group, so we ended up buying tons of stuff between us in different pharmacies across Ensenada, including painkillers, antidepressants, Viagra, antibiotics, etc. Everything came sealed, and...

Avenida Ruiz is very close to the cruise ship port and caters to those visitors on days the ships are in. They are also open other days where if you are visiting Ensenada, they tend to bargain more with you than on cruise ship days. It used to be worth the drive to go to La Bufadora for many of... More

Again, Carnival cruisers crowd out the rest of us. The prices for food are high, the products were high and vendors may not negotiate.

A lot to see - small shops, food stalls, restaurants, street enrtertainment and much much more ! Not too far from Hussong's Cantina a rustic bar over 100 years in business. Well poured drinks and quick service. Prices very reasonable. Strolling Mariachis and Trios. A visit that I will not miss on my next visit to Ensenada !

We have been here soo many times, I can't even count them all... and after all the trinket shopping is done, we would always end up at the Mango Mango on the corner. However, we were here again around December 10th, and Mango Mango has been replaced with Papas & Beer. (they used to be accross the street) The beer... More

This is where most of the bars are, you can find from a very old Cantina called Hussong's to a nightclub called Lutzenkirch. It is very easy to pub crawl, most of the time there is no cover. My favorite is Ultramarino, where you can find the famous oyster shots. There are also some Restaurants like Mahi-Mahi (Very good seafood)... More

Avenida Ruiz is the main drag in the tourist section of Ensenada. Here you will find many mid-priced trinkets and souveniers in and old town atmosphere. Also located in this area, are the important hot spots for young people such as Papas and Beer and others. When the ships are in or on a holiday weekend, the town is bubbling... More

Great bars and food. Be sure to go to Hussong's Cantina and the taco shop right next door. The best in the city!

Hussongs, Mango Mango, Papas and Beer. Ruiz is the heart of the Ensenada tourist zone. Every American ends up here. A treat is the Mexican side of Papas and Beer with pretty senoritas singing along with the Mexican pop. But for my taste head father afield and discover the real Mexico, the real Ensenada.
