9:00 AM - 7:00 PM 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 Ensenada, 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 such as the Civic Plaza, with its sculptures of Mexican heroes and the huge Mexican flag, and the famous board walk, "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 hub as well as a cruise ship port.

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 rain 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, along with the Napa Valley in California.

Important Notice:
For travel into Mexico: U.S. & Canadian citizens need passports. All others also need an ESTA or I-94 form, multiple entry visa or Permanent Resident Card. If any person is detained upon re-entry into the U.S., the bus will be unable to wait, and that person shall be responsible for their own transportation back.

9:00 AM - Depart San Diego for Ensenada
