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.

Take a good quantity of small bills! Try to pay for everything in cash, most of the vendors will haggle the price! The local man on the bus ride from the dock into town had many helpful hints and tips. Pay attention!

I read so many negative reviews regarding this port, but my family and I went there with an open mind and I'm so glad that we did. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and helpful. We never felt unsafe like so many others had mentioned. Although here isn't as much to do in Ensenada (especially with kids) as other ports we've visited, we enjoyed just walking around, shopping, exploring, and eating local food. :)

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!
