    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 …

    ... on my knees. He gets in, I sit in the middle, and John sits on my right. We take off, I mean we take off! Carlos drives quickly through town, hitting every pothole and missing every stop sign. Literally he just did not stop. Oddly enough no one honked or made anything of it. We arrive to the photo shop, surprisingly unharmed, and then he says he has no pesos. He has to barrow $300 pesos from me to be returned with our passports manana! Done! We get ...

    ... historically speaking, Princess cruises has always been linked to Mexican cruises, so there's probably still some sort of agreement that makes them go back there.

    We went on our last night aboard before going through the customs in Los Angeles the next morning. We were supposed to have a little tour of the city but we realised we would never make it on time for our flight (and you don't want to miss an 11h flight).

    ... pretty famous and popular with tourists- Sony did some work round the área so we were able to do a cool tour without being on a tour :) Met up with a few other people, who joined us for the day and proceeded to visit a load of wineries, and make my way though a LOT of wine :P And Cheese... Best way to cure a ?!hangover right?!

    The best place was a small cellar owned by this old man who let us taste several varieties, of which the super sweet one was to my ...

    ... found there. The mining ceased over 60 years ago as the ore ran out but much of the old mining infrastructure remains, quietly rusting away in the salty air. There is apparently an effort now in place to restart a smaller mining operation to sift the remains of what is left for any worthwhile quantities of copper. The locals are treating this as bit of a joke apparently. The town’s old, largely wooden houses built from Pacific north west timber from Canada are attractive. ...
