    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 …

    The stranger, Mr. Luego, says he will take me to the Vet. I
    accept. Again, my mind is screaming out about stranger danger and taking rides
    from strangers. Reason is yelling louder, he is known at the Marina and is

    We go outside and he says “my car is very small, get your
    cat and your husband and meet me at G dock.” I say my husband does not have to

Yeah, I take your bag and the next thing the Mexican Police scoop me up and put me in jail. No Thank you! Don was no help whatsoever, I think he enjoyed it. I finally had to be rude, (which I was trying to avoid being in the first place), and pushed past him and left. Then I just wanted to get back to ...

But on the second attempt we were successful and found ourselves a grand spot right on the beach where we tucked Jambo’s nose into the bush to ward off some of the wind. In minutes we had the table and chairs set up, the braai (barbeque) well alight using the plentiful driftwood to be found on the beach, and most importantly the rum and coke frosting my ...
