Ensenada News and Events

Lonely Planet: Ensenada, Mexico
www.lonelyplanet.com/mexico/baja-california/ensenada

Ensenada, 108km south of the border, is hedonistic Tijuana’s cosmopolitan sister. The city has a quirky mix of just-off-the-boat cruise shippers, drive-by tourists from Cali, visitors from mainland Mexico and seen-it-all locals. In case you’ve forgotten you’re in Mexico (what with all those US dollars and English menus), just look up: a Mexican flag, so large it’s probably visible from space, flutters proudly over the tourist zone. Wander Avenida López Mateos (Calle 1a) and you’ll find almost anything ranging from tasteful ceramics to tasteless T-shirts. Nearby, Calle 2a – unlit and seedy – is worth avoiding after dark.

Ensenada was the capital of Baja territory from 1882 to 1915, but the capital shifted to Mexicali during the revolution. The city subsequently catered to ‘sin’ industries until the federal government outlawed gambling in the 1930s…but judging from the strip clubs, peep shows and bars, sin still goes on today as it did in days of old.
