Just got back from bringing visiting Australian relatives down to Ensenada for the day. It was mid week but the Carnival cruise ship was in port so the downtown street was active. All the shops have pretty much the same merchandise and fight for your...More

Main downtown strip where all the cruise ship touristas go. A few decent restaurants, and blocks and blocks of the SAME blankets, tee shirts, leather beer can holders and souvenirs. Been there. Done that

I asked my friend to take us here to Avenida Ruiz. He told me cruise ships weren’t there so it would be dead. He said he’d take us when the cruise ships docked. It was a vast difference in the area. With or without the...More

This is where the cruise ship shuttle drops you off to either go on a local tour or to walk around downtown Ensenada. The best bathroom stops I ever have in a tourist spot in Mexico. There are shops and drinks close by.

We walked up and down around Avenida Ruiz--very interesting! So many, many Mexican people and so many, many "tourists."

Lots of small shops and bars for an afternoon relax and a couple of Margaritas. Especially Cantina Hussong's is worth a visit in the evening.
