About Ensenada, Mexico

Ensenada is a pleasant combination of a fishing port and tourist center and is a very accomodating city. Visit La Bufadora, a geyser that spouts saltwater more than sixty feet up into the air and is one of biggest blowholes in North America. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the mountain climbing, beachcombing and hiking and Ensenada is a great place from which to begin your trek in the Baja's outback.

What people said about this port:

"...you a do n't miss it we did n't get off the ship went on the blow hole tour." in 87 reviews.

"...a not a very nice city but the attraction we visited - la bufadora was great there is no reason to go there take the wine a..." in 72 reviews.

"Best food in the Habana Cabana at the La Bufadora flea market." in 24 reviews.

Rent a taxi for $15.00 per person to go to the Bufordora, you can stay longer and it is half price of tour price. Best shopping is there.

research the place before you go, the bus drivers outside are happy to drop you off somewhere and come back and pick you up for a low cost. We went to the beach and hung out all day, went across the street to a restaurant for seafood and our driver picked us up later and took us back to the ship. Cost us 12$ USD round-trip!

This town was not like the Caribbean ports I was used to. A short walk off of the ship brings you a main street filled with sidewalks of aggressive shopkeepers, rentals, handbills, and beggars. Strolling this gauntlet can be pretty exhausting. Initially, the wife wanted to escape in a taxi to somewhere, but reconsidered after getting generally creeped-out by the number of military personnel armed with rifles that they seemed to have a lot of out in this town too. We walked a couple blocks each way, staying in sight of the ship. We bought a couple of pottery souvenirs and a couple of tacos from vendors and returned to the ship. Nothing bad happened, but the port just seemed like a place where you were more likely to find trouble than fun or relaxation. Not Carnival's fault, obviously. We continued to have a nice day with ship-board activities, so no big deal.
