Rosarito Beach Overview >
Baja California Mexico is known
as the "Cinderella of the Pacific", Ensenada is located 70 miles south of
the international border, a 90-minute drive from San Diego. Its warm
Mediterranean climate, friendly atmosphere and accessibility by land, air,
and sea have made Ensenada a favorite tourist destination for many years,
and Mexico's second most-visited port-of-call for major cruise lines and
pleasure boats. Ensenada also boasts world class
Sport-fishing in Ensenada
during the Summer months June - October.
Ensenada's main downtown
area is as tourist-friendly as Mexico gets. The city's merchandise selection
is extensive, and shopping is concentrated along a single street — Boulevard
Lopez Mateos. Just a block from the waterfront, this shopping section
attracts mostly cruise passengers and day trippers who browse for an
afternoon. Many of Tijuana's top stores have Ensenada branches on Lopez
Mateos. But there's far more to do here than shop.
Ensenada is the heart of Mexico's
wine country, and eight wineries in Baja's
"Bordeaux Belt" of sheltered valleys near Ensenada produce almost 90 percent
of Mexico's wines. The scenery — picturesque vineyards surrounded by
mountains — alone merits a trip to Ensenada. Inexpensive tours and tasting
is offered six days a week by several Guadalupe Valley and Ensenada
wineries, and the mid-August wine festival, sponsored by the area's Wine
Brotherhood, is one of Baja's most popular annual events.
