All About Ensenada
Located just 70 miles south of the US border on the Baja California peninsula, Ensenada is a sunny port offering an array of shopping, dining, and nightlife. Despite being one of the most popular cruise destinations of the Pacific, this lively destination still retains its eclectic charm with its bustling harbor, sandy beaches, surfing spots, specialty craft boutiques, and art galleries. Ensenada doesn’t hold back when it comes to local cuisine — delightful alfresco restaurants and bars serve up farm-to-table plates, seafood, Baja Med dishes, local wine, and margaritas along Calle Primera, Ensenada’s popular main street.
Though its sea views and beaches are front-and-center, the area’s acclaimed wine country is just a short drive away. Visitors will find a surfer’s paradise along Ensenada’s coast, which features surf contests year-round. And yet, you don’t need to be experienced to catch the waves — hubs with board rentals and beginner outings are available. Snorkeling and scuba diving are also popular activities for those who want to discover Ensenada’s unique ocean ecosystems.
How do I get around Ensenada?

Many of the sights and attractions in Downtown Ensenada and along the waterfront are easy to see on foot or by calling a local taxi, but car rental services are also available for those looking to explore inland.
