small little spot for local history (a local Mount Rushmore). Worth the visit on weekends

The 3 heads are of Benito Juarez (separated church from state), Miguel Hidalgo (initiated the movement for independence) and Venustiano Carranza (promulgated our current... read more

This is a plaza you will walk through in two minutes and then ask yourself why they wasted the limited budget in such a meaningless way.

Plaza Civica is good for a quick photo stop. There is not a lot to do here but the guides share the history of the 3 men the statues are for.

It's a nice place to sit and admire the views and weather. Lots to eat from street vendors. Nice big trees.

The 3 heads are of Benito Juarez (separated church from state), Miguel Hidalgo (initiated the movement for independence) and Venustiano Carranza (promulgated our current constitution) who are historical Mexican figures. This is a very wide-space spot that is totally worth visiting on weekends because of the different markets that get set up. On these markets you can find organic food... More

If you are a tourist and let’s face it, everyone here is basically a tourist, and if you need wifi, Plaza Civica has it for free. We stayed 3 days in Ensenada and didn’t have an international plan for our phone so we needed Wi-Fi. We went to 3 different places and even an internet store and nothing. Then, we... More

We arrive at the plaza from the ship to wait for our tour. Although the information on each monument was in Spanish, it was nice to see some history displayed out in the open. There are a lot of children selling items and it takes away from just being able to walk around.

This is just another place to wander while visiting Ensenada. I do suggest always stopping by on a weekend here. This is where they have events almost every Saturday and Sunday. Sometimes the events are fun, and sometimes they are just o.k. They do have a lot of food and wine events here so it's nice to stop by and... More
