Mexico Ensenada Beach Baja California
Ensenada is home to many incredible beaches, both within and slightly outside the city. Choose public beaches such as San Miguel or El Punto to enjoy a beer or margarita with plenty of friendly locals, or pay a small fee to enter private resort beaches, where you can rent comfy beach chairs or swim in pristine pools.
Mexico Ensenada Vineyard Valley
Hike the six-mile Canon de Doña Petra trail that takes you through rugged desert or into El Salto Canyon, where you can reward yourself with a dip in a waterfall — or later, with a glass of wine. Ensenada is in the heart of Baja California's wine region, which you can experience with tasting and pairing sessions at wineries such as Bodega de Santo Tomás.
You might've just gotten off a ship, but the sea is a sizable source of enchantment in Ensenada. Book a whale watching trip to ride out into the Pacific, where whales migrate down the coast to Baja California during certain months of the year. Or, for a less season-dependent ocean tourism experience, watch La Bufadora blowhole shoot water high into the sky.
If you love fish tacos, Ensenada (the dish's birthplace) is the place for you to be — try the spate of stalls near the pier where your cruise ship arrives. You can also enjoy food from all around Mexico, from more traditional varieties of tacos and burritos, to tangy ceviche made with locally caught fish.
Shops near Ensenada's port will sell traditional souvenirs like postcards and key chains. For a more unique experience, head to Avenida Lopez Mateos, which locals refer to as "Calle 1." The artist studios and shops that line this street spotlight locally made art, from Dia de los Muertos souvenirs to photographed and painted landscapes of local scenery.
