We like Ensenada to Hawaii. We went last Mayl and liked it so much we are doing it again this May. The bus ride is about 3-4 hours. The scenery is gorgeous, as you are riding along the coastline, so much of the land untouched. We also like the itinerary because if gives you a few days of just cruising first -- perfect for relaxing and slowing down a hectic lifestyle. Then when you get the islands, your relaxed and ready for some touring. Then afterwards we stay a few days in Honolulu. Perfect!
