Ensenada — Located at Baja’s Bahía de Todos Santos, Ensenada – the country’s second most visited port-of-call – is about 75 miles from the border. In spite of its proximity to the U.S., the city is known for its authentic Mexican charm and character, a far cry from the chaotic nearby towns of Tijuana and Rosarito.  Mariachi music drifts in and out of cantinas amid the chatter of sport fishermen and day trippers from San Diego.

Why Go

For the great surfing, the fresh seafood, and the eclectic shopping, all close to the U.S.
