We walked off and went uptown to a small local bar that claims to have invented the margarita. It was small and local. We had a great time.

Our kayak trip through an independent company was cancelled due to bad sea conditions. I wish we had called them back to reschedule when our cruise itinerary was changed to another day there. We ended up walking across the street to the big white building (Riviera) and bought some souvenirs. Sat and watched the water fountain dance to the music over by the big flag pole. Caught a horse-drawn buggy around town, then ate some tacos at a bar/club. Read Less

The town is really clean but can get quite crowded when the ship is in. We always take the shuttle into town and walk the few blocks to Houssong's Cantina. This is the oldest bar in Ensenada and still owned by the same family. They have the distinction of inventing the Margarita there and it is still the best! Read Less

Shuttle bus at a cost, to another interesting destination Shopping, Shopping Shopping well you can't leave without buying some silver for your wife as we won't be coming by here again. Tried the local Margarita got quite tipsy on one, I heard this is where it was invented so we try the source of the drink wherever we go, loved it. The traffic moves very slowly around the town and we were very surprised as they did not appear to be any road junction signs as to whom would give way. Ensenada did it for us Happy days Read Less

If I did this cruise again, I would probably stay on board for this stop. If you do get off, I would recommend just walking around the downtown area near the ship port. This was the best part of the stop.

We've been here at least a dozen times, so we usually don't even get off. If you're new to this place, some fun drinking and eating locations, as well as plenty of tourist junk (and I do mean junk) to get. Fun to walk the main drag, which is what we did this time, but just as much fun to stay on the ship. Read Less

We just walked through a few shops, some of which were a bit intimidating. We were there until evening, would rather have visited during the day.

Took shuttle bus to town and were sold an excursion to the Blowhole for far less than the ship's tour. Transferred to another very nice bus and our guide joined us, he was amazing, so funny and had us all in stiches. He gave us lots of information and went with us to the Blowhole and pointed out what we could buy in the flea market on the way. He was probably on a commission but it didnt really matter. It was a very fun excursion and I loved the scenery outside the town. Read Less

Paid the $3 to ride to the town to shop. This is crowded and the street peddlers harass you to come into their shops. We are used to Cozumel which is much cleaner. Would not get off the ship next time.
