We’ve been to Ensenada many times, so we didn’t even go into town. We walked over to the Carnival terminal which has better souvenir shops and a better margarita bar and hung out for a little while. Then we got back onboard and had pizza at Alfredo’s. Twice before we have done the wine bus out to LA Cetto and that’s a fun Ensenada shore excursion. Read Less

Terrible place, nothing to see and do, dirty and felt unsafe - spent 15mins before returning to ship as did most of the guests. Total disgrace that the ship docked there

Again, been here a lot. There isn't much to do in Ensenada. The walk through downtown is simply about avoiding the 5,000 souvenir shops, all selling the exact same stuff.

Just got on a bus that was outside of the port terminal, was $4/roundtrip per person (just keep your tickets to get back on). Drops you off right in town! Shopping, food, papas n beer, etc.

We probably should have done an excursion here. Instead, we went to the "resort" that Carnival was selling as an excursion. We walked a little further and got an uber driver, which only cost $5. Do not use the vans that are waiting for you outside, they wanted $70 for our party of 7. At the "resort" (Hotel Coral), we paid about 1/2 of what they would have charged us through Carnival, however, we didn't get lunch with ours. It really wasn't much of a resort though. No beach, so they have sand brought in. We had fun though, the kids went swimming and we hung out in a cabana (we did not have to pay extra for this). After that, we went into town and did some shopping. Beware, you will get bombarded by people trying to sell you stuff. We had a great lunch at El Corralito, which was recommended by our Uber driver.

Private transport to the blowhole and back. Spent some time and had a nice lunch. Very nice and pretty town.

Ensenada is a very sad port to visit, at least the areas close to the port. The weather was nice and warm, but after an hour of walking along the waterfront, we returned to the ship.

Nothing really big to do unless you have an excursion booked, the port only has a few tiny shops which most carry the same things, no restaurant either. It was way over priced. If they could build something like Cozumel it could be a little more enjoyable. Disappointed in this port. I would have preferred to stay in Hawaii an extra day or two. Read Less

Surprisingly clean and 'safe' feeling. Easy walking access to/from the port. Very helpful and friendly locals! Enjoyed visiting, and did not expect to.

There is nothing to see here, it exists for cruise ships only to comply with labor requirements of the Jones Act.
