Ensenada - Mexico Highlights:
Baja Peninsula, La Bufadora blowhole, whale watching
Visitors to Ensenada are lured by the low-key, traditional Mexican flavour of the city's reasonably priced restaurants, shops and hotels and by the boisterous party atmosphere that prevails on weekends. The city is located 65 miles south of the U.S. border on the Baja California Peninsula. You can stroll through the lively waterfront fish market-where the makings of Ensenada's exceptional seafood meals with good, local wine, which flows abundantly from the beautiful Calafia Valley outside the city. From here visit the Guadalupe Valley Winery, "The Blowhole" and go whale watching on Todos Santos Island.

Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo stopped briefly in the area around 1542, but it wasn't until 1602 that Sebastian Vizcaino gave a name to the bay Bahia de Todos Santos (All Saints' Bay) and dubbed the shore area Ensenada. Ranching was the town's first industry, but mining took over after a goldstrike in 1870. Once the mines were depleted, Ensenada withered until rumrunners and film idols bucking U.S. Prohibition started flying down to indulge themselves. When drinking became legal again in the U.S., Ensenada turned its attention toward developing the bay.
