Ensenada by Bike
Ensenada by Bike
Located a little over 100km from San Diego lies the eclectic city of Ensenada, affectionately referred to by the locals as the Cinderella of the Pacific.
This coastal city is the third largest in Baja California and over the years has morphed from an original, sleepy settlement city into an aerospace center, blossoming wine region and popular cruise ship destination. It is also the destination of the annual Rosarito Ensenada cycling event, an award-winning 50-mile race along the Pacific coast from Rosarito Beach to the beautiful Ensenada waterfront.
During your 3.5-hour cycling tour you will hop on a beach cruiser, with back pedal breaks and no shifts, and hit the hot spots in the city for its delicious food and quirky culture. Ride along the Malecon then stop at the nearby Plaza de Las Tres Cabezas to view large sculptures memorializing the city's founders; while here you will be greeted by one of the three largest and tallest Mexican flags in the country. At the former Rivera de Ensenada Hotel, you can belly up to the Andaluz bar where the margarita was invented and taste the original version of this world-famous drink for yourself.
Cruise through the boardwalk at the Playa Hermosa and enjoy one of the best ceviche in Mexico at the La Guerrerense, a ceviche stand that snagged third place at the Singapore World Street Food Congress and has been the decorated winner of the 2011 and 2012 LA Street Food Fests. Your journey to Ensenada isn't complete until you sink your teeth into an authentic taco at a taco stand locals rated Ensenada's best taco in 2017.
Throughout the tour your friendly, knowledgeable English-speaking guide will share fascinating facts and stories about the culture and people of this Baja California gem! Reserve your bike today.

Our tour guide was very informative and friendly. Seeing the city of Ensenada by bike was really neat and a different perspective. We saw a lot, walked and biked a lot, ate good food and had a great time!

Our tour guide was phenomenal as she had extensive knowledge on the history of the area. The casual bike ride though town was a great way to experience Ensenada culture first hand. The guide took us to a local street taco shop and they were some of the best we've ever had. Great experience.
We had a great trip! The tour guide was awesome. It was an easy bike ride and fun to get around to many different sites. The food stops were delicious! Thanks for an awesome excursion!

Edgar took us around the local area by the ship and it was amazing. He was super relatable and of course very knowledgeable about the history of Ensenada. Took us to awesome spots around town and we were able to familiarize ourselves with the area which allowed us to explore confidently on our own after the tour. Amazing experience at the fish market, great food at the taqueria and ceviche stand.. and Margaritas... where they were invented! Not tiring on the bike, but be sure to have intermediate handling experience... or just hope there is no tree cutting going on! (traffic cones...). DO IT!
