The only way I know of getting there is by car. There's probably a bus that runs between Ensenada and Tijuana, and I know the city has a tiny airport, but since you'll probably need a car once you get there I would suggest you drive. Of course, this is tricky if you're flying to the West Coast as almost no rental companies will allow you to take a vehicle into Mexico!
Ensenada is very spread out and doesn't have a very extensive bus system. If at all possible, try to bring your own vehicle. Of course, this gets tricky unless you're driving to Ensenada from your home. If you're flying to that part of the world, this could be difficult, and unfortunately I don't know much about what options you'd have. Contact your travel agent for more info.

When driving by car it is best that you take one that is both reliable and not terribly flashy. The big thing to do is just before you enter Mexico there in Chula Vista you need to buy insurance for your car. Your standard insurance does not cover you to be in Mexico. Although if you talk to your carrier they may be able to sell you a temporary insurance plan for Mexico. I went for four days and it was $30 US.
When driving in Mexico be aware of the other cars, they don't value lanes as much as we do or the exterior of cars. A slight nudge or bump that might cause a scratch or warp is common place and generally accepted so try to steer clear. This doesn't mean it will happen to you, it's just a good idea to keep a lookout. When driving through San Diego to the border you of course go through Tijuana, you then take the 1D to Ensenada which is a real nice drive all the way to Ensenada. It's a real nice road and there are no holes the size of small cars on it or anything. This is because it is a toll road so bring some cash. When driving in cities at stop lights, you must immediately accelerate with the pedal to the metal when the light turns green or the locals will get pissed. Be quick, but don't be a dick. Most hotels take in cars to a private parking area, I suggest you do that as soon as you get to your destination to avoid any stress. Gasoline pumps generally only accept cash in Mexico. So, be prepared.
