many were timid about visiting Baja for the first time But after 2 days here they unanimously agreed that Ensenada was the best place to visit. They took tours of the wineries, la Bufadora, steet shopping ,and just had fun experiencin Baja.. The Majority stayed at the San Nicolas and the overflow stayed at the Villa Marina that had a few bad reviews on Trp Advisor, but as they realize that tastes are differnt among people, had no complaints for the Villa Marina. I expect that next year Ensenad will be over run again by all thes nice ladies in thei Red hats and Purple clothes. Ensenada IS a fun, family oriented city just 72 miles South of the US border. Easily accesible by bus or car. Please don't let the local media scare you away.
