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.

Has the best strip of restaurants where you can get delicious tacos and GIANT margaritas for a penny! Some of the streets did get pretty crazy with parties so be a little careful if you have children with you.

We did blow hole tour. It is long and bus ride is an hour. For the time we could of done a lot of stuff in town. Don't even sip the water there, Take water bottle or buy one in port. Small bills for cash, hat and sunglasses are needed. Need good shoes since All Walking surfaces are uneven. Take large canvas bag or tote for shopping. Have a passport, much easier for returning.

Ensenada is not the greatest port town. We sometimes stay on the ship and sometimes just wander through the tourist shops. This time we did the deep sea fishing excursion through Carnival with Sergio's and it was excellent! We caught tellowtail and bonita then took some fish to one of the food stalls at the fish market and they made us fresh fish tacos. They were fantastic! We will definitely do this again.

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. :)

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!
