Why Ensenada Experience?
Ensenada is the third—largest city in Baja California. It is located 116 km (about 70 miles) south of Tijuana. Ensenada is locally referred as La Bella Cenicienta del Pacífico (The Cinderella of the Pacific).
Located in Todos Santos Bay — an inlet of the Pacific Ocean — Ensenada is an important commercial and fishing port, as well as a cruise ship destination, it also has a navy, military base and airfield, which functions as an airport of entry into Mexico.
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 the wine country, known as the wine capital of Mexico.
It is said that the origins of the “vitis vinifera” were at The San Ignacio Mission in 1703, when Jesuit Missionary, Juan de Ugarte; planted the first vineyards there.
