  • watch out for the holes

    by ensman Written May 18, 2014

    in some places of the city of Ensenada that are out of the tourist zone , you can find some holes in the road not that big but still watch out. -obviusly like a lot of cities you have to watch not leaving your stuff in the car, and don´t enter places that looks suspicious, i saw a warning from someone that said that he was invited to a bar and some girl made him a lapdance , obviously if you enter those kind of places in every city you will find that kind of girls.
    Here is some ideas of places to go in Ensenada that are safe and fun.

    New stop signs

    by Agraichen Written Sep 11, 2015

    The southern end of Ensenada has always been a bit of a slow section of road on Highway 1. However "the powers that be" have made it even slower due to the number of people that tend to just cross the highway in front of traffic.

    There are 6-8 stop signs now in place along the road and the Policia actually watch periodically to see if people, especially out of country plated cars, actually stop. Since stop signs are typically only a slight suggestion in Mexico, this is a bit of an "awakening" for locals as well as visitors.

    Not Family Friendly

    by Agraichen Written Sep 22, 2015

    While staying at Hotel Casa Del Sol I asked about good restaurants in the area besides their own very good, but slightly expensive dining facility. I was told to just walk down Av Adolfo Lopez Mateos and I'd find a number of very good venues.

    As I like to walk I proceeded about 4-5 blocks taking note of the various restaurants along the way. I thought I'd recalled Cantina Hussong's somewhere in the vicinity so I kept walking to Av Ruiz looking for it.

    Suddenly the "ambiance" of the area changed and I found a number of "clubs" that one would consider not for the average family. "Barkers" were all over the streets telling tourists that they had the best show in town.

    I did find Hussong's but it was not open so I bid a hasty retreat from the area.

    Mexico Car Insurance

    by maritoni Written May 19, 2005

    Buy insurance online to avoid police hassles. Do not buy at the entry (Tijuana entry) as cars are lined up - this will take alot of your time. $45 a week for an insured car will erase your worries once stopped by a MX cop - since they can tell that you by the license plate of your car.

    Avoid problems when shopping for pottery

    by eric_ives Updated Jan 6, 2004

    Although in general most people probably won't get ripped off shopping in Ensenada, there are a couple things you can do to avoid giving bad merchants a chance to cheat you. First, if at all possible, take your purchases with you instead of having merchants ship them to you. Second, it may be better to pay cash instead of using a credit card. The pottery shop in the Plaza Marina shopping mall had good prices, but they double-charged us for shipping, didn't pack materials well, and when we turned in a claim with the post office for the broken pottery that arrived (shipped COD), the Post Office sent the refund to the shop, so we never got our money. Also, we paid by credit card and the shop charged us pesos at a rate that added about 15% to the price we had agreed upon in dollars.

    If you buy it, don't let them ship it
