Top 10 Beach Resorts In Ensenada, Mexico - Updated 2024

| 4 min read

Ensenada is a busy port city, but at the same time, the temperate climate and its setting on the Pacific coast have led to its popularity as a tourist town. Proximity to San Diego makes this Mexican town a great weekend getaway spot as well. If visiting during the whale migration season, you can book a sightseeing tour to view these majestic creatures. For a day of adventure, Lasa Canadas Campamento is the place to be with zip lines, pools, and ATV rides. Visit La Bufadora to witness a marine geyser in action. If you prefer to enjoy a more laid-back holiday, visit Bodegas de Santo Tomás, one of the oldest wineries in the region.
