Ensenada is a medium-sized coastal Mexican
city in the state of Baja
. It's a common stop for cruise
ships, and since it's only a quick 2-hour drive
from the American
border at San Ysidro (just south of San Diego), it's also quite popular with American tourists
out for a little weekend
The full name of the city is actually Ensenada de Todos Los Santos (Inlet of All The Saints), and it's the fourth largest city in Baja.
A short boat-ride across the bay takes you to Isla de Todos Los Santos, a beautiful little island with world-class surfing conditions.
