Ensenada is a small tourist town south of Tijuana. The good is it doesn’t have the hustle of the border town. But it only has the touristy items. The shops are all cheap tourist souvenirs. It’s a pleasant stroll to walk off sea legs, but...More
Took a tour with our cruise ship down First street. All the shops have such cool stuff. You just want to be very careful that you are really getting the real stuff if you are looking for certain items. The owners were very helpful if...More
Some of the nicest restaurants and some really good shops are found on this street. Plan at least a couple of hours to stroll and shop and don’t forget lunch - either at the fabulous El Rey Sol or a great taco stand. If you...More
You can find many shops, restaurants, pharmacies, and bars. I personally like to sit outside and have lunch and watch all the tourists coming off the cruise boats. There is a lot of shopping, including stores that let you sample lots of tequila, mezcal and...More
A new area where you can get food, tours and trinkets is the Embarcadero or port side of Ensenada which has be fixed up greatly, head up from the Cruise Port on the Left, cross the first bridge and walk up at the top go...More
Took a three-day cruise out of Long Beach to Ensenada. First time in Mexico, it was very scenic, nice shopping district, plenty of vendors and you will find plenty of deals all along the strip. All vendors sell the same items, just about, so you...More
The tourists here tend to be a bit of a different crowd than in TJ, so the offerings are a little different and the hustle is gentler and smoother. It's a good place to walk around - you;'ll see many things of interest and they...More
We where here on a cruise with a few hours stop in Ensenada. We took a city tour that dropped us off here for an hour to shop. It felt safe and while they wanted you to look at their stuff or come in their...More
Ensenada was the first stop on our 14-night, and our second, Panama Canal cruise with NCL in November of 2018. Never having visited this city before, I searched and found out beforehand that Ensenada has the reputation of hosting the LARGEST Mexican flag in the...More
Our day was long, full and busy! We had never been to Ensenada before so we're full of anticipation and quite excited.
We spent a pleasant hour or two exploring First Street. Lots of different shops selling clothes; luggage; alcohol; sweets; ice cream (lots!); small...More
Absolutely safe. My family and I drove done in February for a mission trip, my son and I drove it again in March, and I went down again 2 weeks ago for the Baja 500. No problems what so ever. All the toll booths were not... More
Absolutely safe. My family and I drove done in February for a mission trip, my son and I drove it again in March, and I went down again 2 weeks ago for the Baja 500. No problems what so ever. All the toll booths were not operating, people were accepting donations, but no tolls. Roads are in good condition, little construction between Rosarito and Ensenada, but all good. Worse part is crossing the border back into the US. Enjoy, it’s a great experience.
Yes. Puerto Nuevo is about an hour from Ensenada along Mex. Rte. 1 (toll road). My favorite restaurant is Ortega’s followed by Splash Restaurant. Both offer sweeping views of the pacific and are most enjoyable at sunset.
