    My stay was wonderful. The hostel is very comfortable. The kitchen facilities are the best to save some money. Is perfectly located to go to the boardwalk and main tourist strip. The only thing is the shower pressure is really bad but Ensenada as most of Baja California has water issues unfortunately.

    This was the beginning of my first ever trip to Mexico. The staff were very helpful, even calling a cab for me on the morning I left.

    I would stay here again if I was in Ensenada. The people that run the hostel are lovely.

    I really enjoyed Ensenada. It is quite charming. Small. It has all you need but still feels like a small town.

    I left Tijuana at noon on friday from the main Bus Station (Central Camionera). There are 2 bus lines that leave Tijuana for Ensenada. They pretty much have departures every hour. The price was 185 pesos. It takes 2 hours to get …

    ... my laptop died. I found an outlet in the bathroom and plugged it in. The internet was much faster in there and I was able to email my resume from the bathroom floor. They better call me for an interview after that…

    Back on the ship, I watched the movie The Proposal, read my book, and napped. I headed to work the 6-10pm shift with the teens where they decorated backpacks as I handed out loads of twizzlers ...

    ... on the next 1/4 of the tank. Finally, we begin to see the Nopale farms, newly planted prickly pear leaves, shoved into the dirt, two to a row, like buried alien bunny ears. This means we are getting closer. I am pushing the X, trying to get the GPS ETA to tick down the time to below 4 PM. As we coast the ridge tops, dip down, climb another ridge, the Cirio are getting thinner and thinner, until they are no more. And, ahead is the valley of El Rosario. The fields ...

    ... not wait to see my room!! I was the first one here and I have a double which is awesome! My room is inside (no window) and is actually quite homey. My roommate arrived shortly after, her name is Emily and she is super sweet! She majors in Zoology, which is cool, and we have Evolution together! She is from California. We get along so well already and have a lot in common, so its perfect :) At 5:00 we had a lifeboat drill ...

    ... in weight. But they are filter feeders, and although being the largest fish species known and appear shark like, they are harmless to humans eating very small plankton and occasionally small fish as most whales do. This one appeared possibly lost as to see one in the Sea of Cortes is considered very unusual and it soon headed back out into deeper water. Could have been fun if it had become interested in my lure….

    Next, we spent the following night camped on the beach ...
