This the main street where you shop, eat, drink and dance the day or night away. All of the main bars and clubs are either right on this street or right off of it. Have a day walking and shopping and bartering.
Fondest memory: Sorry... can't tell you these... but there are many.
Favorite thing: 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...
I WOULD FIRST START A CRUISE DOWN COSTERO BOULEVARD. SIGHT SEEING EVERY HOTEL AND PARTY LIFESTYLE. THEN I WOULD GO HORSEBACK RIDING DOWN THE BEACH. AFTER I WOULD GET SOMETHING TO EAT AT ANY CORNER STAND THAT SELLS FRESH SEAFOOD, ESPECIALLY 'CEVICHE' TOSTADAS.
Fondest memory: WHAT I MISS MOST OF ENSENADA IS THE HOSPITALITY. PEOPLE THERE ARE SO MUCH FUN. THEY MAKE IT FUN. IT'S A GOOD GETAWAY FROM ALL THE STRESS AND EVERYDAY ROUTINE. THE NIGHT LIFE IS AWESOME IF YOU LIKE TO PARTY. THE FOOD IS REALLY GOOD (FISH TACOS).
I was in Ensenada on two separate mission trips, both of which involved visiting very poor neighborhoods and working with the local churches to provide Vacation Bible Schools for the children. Although simply going there to gawk would be a bit inapropriate, visiting these neighborhoods to eat in their restaurants, shop at their markets, worship in their churches or simply play with the children would be a wonderful experience for anybody. The people in these neighborhoods have nothing other than the bare essentials, yet they are some of the happiest and most hospitable people on the face of the earth.
Fondest memory: I miss all the people I got to know when I was there, especially the children who loved you if you so much as smiled at them. Even though I was in a foreign country where the landscape was completely different from what I'm used to, I never felt like an outsider. Instead of laughing at my accent, they welcomed my attempts with Spanish and tried to learn a few words of English. While as a visitor I was naturally a curiosity, I was never made to feel like I wasn't completely welcomed into the community.
Ride the Rosarito-Ensenada 50 mile fun ride. The photo is 3 Pedalphiles at a scenic overlook while we were driving down. I am on the left, Joe from Jordan is in the middle and Scott from Moscow is on the right.
Fondest memory: Finishing and still being able to walk!
Favorite thing: I took this picture just because it had part of a statue of liberty sticking out of the roof. Hmmmm.
Favorite thing: Here's the blow hole in all its glory! This is ALL it did while I was there. Unfortunitely the water was very calm. Upsetting, considering some of the pictures I've seen.
Favorite thing: In Mexico, you can walk into a drug store and buy prescription drugs without a prescription. Such as Pennicyllin, Antibiotics, and a bunch of other stuff I had no clue about.
Favorite thing: Papas & Beer is a popular place to visit in Ensenada. I didn't actually go in because I wasn't in the mood for loud music and beer drinking. A lot of people on the cruise ship went here.
