State Tourism Office
We had a difficult time finding adequate information about things to see and do in Ensenada until we went to the State Tourism Office. Here we found brochures and information that helped us discover many places of interest we would not have otherwise known about, since there is a noticable scarcity of tourist information in the hotels.
In the same building with the State Tourism Office is Asistencia al Turista (Tourist Protection) which provides legal assistance to tourists.
Across from the Corona Hotel, on Boulevard Lazaro Cardenas (Boulevard Costero) and Calle Las Rocas.
Mon. - Sat., 9 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Sun., 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Next town after Tijuana
Ensenada is quite big, and most tourists spend the night in the hotel zone. It's pretty safe, and there is a big difference if you go on a weekday and a weekend: weekdays are usually very quiet and dead, weekends very busy and noisy -- it doesn't even seem like the same town...
Ensenada Real Estate in Baja California, México.
I see each year Ensenada changes...
Ever wonder why so many retirees, first-time home-buyers and property investors are crazy about the Ensenada Real Estate?
Oceanfront condos and luxury homes are popping out in the Ensenada cityscape.
And also in Valle de Guadalupe, the Ensenada wine country, where 90% of the Mexican wine is produced.
I believe there are two main reasons to explain why the Real Estate boom is happening in this Northern Baja area... The proximity to the Mexico-USA border, and the best climate on earth.

Did you experience the same view after your last visit to Ensenada? The friendliness of the Ensenadians living there.
Gas Stations in Ensenada
there are many gas stations in Ensenada and most of it are owned by PEMEX (the National Petroleum conoany of Mexico). the gas prices here is in liters! (1 gallon is 3.78 liters). i still wonder why the US still uses the english system of measurement while the rest of the world uses the metric system that many americans get lost in translation on what is a liter or a kiloeter or a degree celsius. (Only the USA, American Samoa and Liberia uses the English System and the rest of the world uses the metric system). Magna.............$ 6.82 pesos per liter
Premium..........$ 8.56 pesos per liter
Diesel..............$ 5.79 pesos per liter
These prices are in liters, since 1 gallon = 3.7854 liters.
Pemex conversion rate at pump: 1 dollar = $ 13.00 pesos (+/-)
(Better rate at money conversion offices)
This converts to:
Magna.............$ 2.53 dollars per gallon
Premium..........$ 3.18 dollars per gallon
Diesel..............$ 2.15 dollars per gallon
Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church
One is reminded that Mexico is a Catholic nation by the twin spires of "Santuario de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe," which can been seen rising above the city's relatively low skyline. The church is not a tourist attraction. Karen and I walked a mile to reach it, and we were the only gringos in sight. Our Lady of Guadalupe is built in typical Spanish colonial style, and is one of Ensenada's most prominent landmarks.
A major festival is held each year in Ensenada on December 12, with amusement rides and food booths set up in front of the church. It honors Mexico's patron saint: Dia de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe
(Our Lady of Guadalupe Day).
South of the downtown area, at the corner of Calle 6 and Avenida Floresta.
