A major port for Mexico, Ensenada has a very industrial looking shoreline, but its sprawling downtown shopping village makes up for the lack of beaches. Bargains top be found here & there are enough restaurants for everyone to enjoy. RV camping nearby, along with whale watching tours, and the scenic coastline surrounding the region, makes this a great stop for a night or two. An easy day trip from San Diego.
