Only 80 miles south of San Diego, Ensenada is a popular seaside escape. Outdoor activities are a solid way to enjoy days in the sun, and fun waves and calm beaches have earned Ensenada a good reputation with surfers. Visitors can give it a try, or get wet swimming and kayaking. Want to stay dry? Test you swing on the golf course or go horseback riding.
Well-known names like Papas and Beer and Hussong’s Cantina serve up food and drinks, and while tequila is popular and plentiful, Ensenada is also home to vineyards.
As far as season activities, visitors can go whale-watching during winter and spring when gray whales come to town. You may even catch sight of sea lions and dolphins.
Ensenada is the third-largest city in Baja California, and is a popular vacation destination throughout the year.
