Ensenada Highlights

Your guided tour starts with a panoramic and scenic drive through the residential and commercial areas of the city eventually arriving at Plaza Civica. Here you will discover 12-foot-high busts of noted Mexican heroes including Miguel Hidalgo (leader of the War of Mexican Independence, 1810 to 1821), Venustiano Carranza (37th President of Mexico and leader of the Mexican Revolution, 1910 to 1920), and Benito Juarez (26th President of Mexico and an equal rights leader).

You will then visit Riviera Del Pacifico, a once-glamorous resort and casino most popular during the roaring 30s renowned for its Mexican architecture and famous clientele like Douglas Fairbanks and Al Capone. A complimentary margarita is waiting for you to enjoy as you take in the splendid surroundings.

Now it is time to return to the city and enjoy a guided walking tour of downtown Ensenada. It is here that you will begin to explore the local food scene, including a Baja Fish or Shrimp Taco while exploring El Mercado Negro, Ensenada's extraordinary fish, and seafood market. Have your camera ready to snap some great shots of this amazingly colorful place!

Finally, you will have the opportunity to browse and enjoy the city's central shopping district before returning to your ship.

I took the excursion last February with my sister. We were provided a tour guide and a sedan car for ourselves. Marlene, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. She went out of her way to offer me a vegetarian meal in lieu of the fish tacos. We really enjoyed the tour. The owner was very friendly as well. I recommend this tour and the people running it.

We had the most delightful excursion in Ensenada. Our tour guide met us and showed us everything. We started at the beach, then went to the Hotel Playa, up the winding road to the top where we saw gorgeous homes and all of Ensenada. We went to a winery,( need to go there later in the day, as 9:30AM is too early to partake in their wines}, but loved the place anyway! We bought delicious candy at the candy store and shopped at lovely jewelry stores. We asked our awesome guide to take us to a Casino. It was an end to a perfect excursion! Five star from beginning to end!!!
