Lopez Mateous was beautiful!

We walked up and down the streets. It was wonderful. So, so many Mexican people. I would go again! We really liked the people.

All the goodies that you could load yourself down with are available here. Booze, drugs(legal and probably otherwise), cigars, native crafts (some even made in Mexico!), and lots of restaurants and nightclubs.

Tourist strip just like First Street ... 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.

This area is a great shopping area. Lots of souvenir shops, as well as restaurants and clothing stores. The people are very friendly and a lot of them speak great English.

This is a street full of great craft markets and more! But the best vendor on the street is the man who makes copper wire sculpture. I love these items. My favorites are the Hermit Crab (white), the little frogs, the amazing lizards and the 2 items I bought years ago from the same man….the cactus with marbles and the... More

Being Mexican, bilingual, and a seasoned budget traveler, I enjoy Avenida Mateos for what it is and what it's not. It isn't real Mexico. It's a place where tourists can feel safe and speak in English for the most part. The food is good and there are some venders selling some very well made, high end merchandise. On both counts,...

Busy, noisy, but when we were there, lots of stores just weren't open. Don't know if it was because cruise ships weren't in port or what, but aside from the heavy auto traffic, it seemed quite dead.

I have had many massages, and this is one of the best. Ladies, there were 3 of us that had a massage on January 8th. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday. The facilities were clean. The staff was friendly and professional. We all filled out a form with a front and back picture of a person for us to indicate... More

My husband and I visited Ensenada on Nov 19th. We were aboard the Princess Golden which stopped here for the day. We were told by our cruise director that there were no taxis to take us within the cruise terminal and that we needed to take the shuttle. We paid $2 per person to ride a shuttle, which they waited... More
