Default Ensenada

Have a weekend off from work at the end of the month and am thinking of taking the three day Carnival cruise to Ensenada. Just being on the ship is the main reason to go but does anyone have any suggestions about what to do in Ensenada?

El Rey Sol is a great restaurant right in Ensenada. Shopping nearby is fun. The vineyards in the Valle de Guadalupe are wonderful to visit. Rent a car, drive there and have a great time. Monte Xanic vineyards is the best one but all in that area are quite nice to visit.

Take a cab to the blow hole. You can catch one in town and they will wait for you there for up to 2 hours and the cost is only about $7 or $8 per person -- if you've never seen it it's well worth the ride out there -- they have a huge flea market there also -- Ensenada has some great shopping -- you can buy purses and wallets and lots of cool art pieces -- it's a really fun town.

If you need contact lenses or a new prescription, go to Piwi's (Optician Rafael Chavez...terrific guy) on the main drag: Ave. Adolfo Lopez Mateos
It's the main street where all the shops are...you'll see it.

If you need meds pick up prescriptions next door to his place.....have lunch at the Cafe Pueblo around the corner.....very nice people....go across the street and have a mango-margarita at Mango Madness across the street from Papas and Beer.

Shop at Mario's for silver and leather...
