South of Bajamar on the Toll Road where it splits to the Zona Turistica de Ensenada. A little farther than Calimax in Puerto Nuevo but a larger selection.

One of the best experiences you can have in Ensenada! Pass through the entrance gate and you'll see the well maintained garden areas. Go all the way to the end of the road to park in the lot on the right. Walk towards the beach and head left, you'll find the oceanfront restaurant to have good, fresh, high quality food yet affordable meal.... just amazing! There are plenty of amenities: Kayak rental, bicycle rental, boardwalk along the water, fishing spots, a private beach with few people.

Parks & Nature

A beautiful setting on the ocean. La Bufadora (or Blow Hole) is a great place to pickup souvenirs, local art, eat classic Baja Fish Tacos and there is often Ballet Forklorico and other cultural events on the weekends. When the blow hole is active, the water can shoot up to 150 feet and is just amazing. If you are in Ensenada, this is a must see.

Entertainment & Activities

Nearing Ensenada, the Ruta del Vino Valle de Guadalupe turns inland and quickly climbs elevation (following Mexico Highway 3). Everywhere the eye can see are the rolling hills of the Mexican wine country planted with vines. The Baja wine country in the Valle de Guadalupe just may be one of the most beautiful in the world.
