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.

If you’re going with carnival I highly recommend booking the ATV through winery excursion FROM THE CARNIVAL WEBSITE. It is a BLAST. Downtown Ensenada was pretty neat, kind of sketchy around some corners (but I overthink everything anyways) & we also lost our way back to the boat so it took us an extra minute. Totally our fault- just a heads up to keep track of where the boats are 😂🤷🏼‍♀️


We had a great time in ensenada. The city was far cleaner and nicer than what others have said. It's no cozumel or cabo but we were not disappointed. We walked avenida primera shopped and had drinks at papas and beer. Great time.


With all the recent talk about how bad Mexico has become I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it really was. We went to La Buffadora and had a wonderful day.

We did the excursion to the Bufadora! It was awesome. Walked to see the natural geyser! Did some walking and shopping from street vendors! Awesome experience! Got to visit the location where the famous margarita was invented!
