from Ensenada Mexico Pacific Ocean Coastal Tour
Our Ensenada Mexico Coastal Tour will lead you further south into Mexico through a scenic toll road where you will see how coastal cliffs and soft hillsides tumble one-to-one to blend into the blue ocean.

This tour will provide you with a more genuine Mexican experience! In that city, all is very different than the areas around the border. The variety of landscape and the unique architecture will delight your sights.
In the area, you will find emblematic sites as the Civic Plaza, with its sculptures of Mexican heroes and the huge Mexican flag and the famous boardwalk “Malecon” whose coastal access is the best place to admire the port activities. This tour is the perfect way to spend a relaxing day under the Mexican sun!

Located in the Bahía de Todos Santos — an inlet of the Pacific Ocean — Ensenada is an important commercial and fishing port as well as a cruise ship port of call.

The city is backed by small mountain ranges. Due to its location on the Pacific Ocean and Mediterranean latitude, the weather tends to be mild year-round. Although the winter rainy season is short and the area is prone to prolonged droughts, Ensenada sits in the heart of a wine country that is widely regarded as the best in Mexico and the Americas with the Napa Valley in California

Marco was a great guide. Some communication around the beach at Rosarito with having to pay for shelter as it was super hot. Also at lunch around having to pay the singers as there were multiples of them. We left my dibs souvenirs on bus and tried to call within minutes but unable to. Sent email. Next day told they were not found but perhaps the bus should have been checked before another tour. Disappointed.

My husband and I went on the Grand Baja Coastal tour from San Diego, which included stops in Tijuana, Puerto Nuevo and Rosarito Beach. Our guide, Juan, was very informative and friendly. Our lobster and margherita lunch was good. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
