Meet the Cinderella of the Pacific

Any place locally dubbed as the “Cinderella of the Pacific” better be worth its weight in glass slippers. Ensenada doesn't disappoint—it’s a vibrant beach city with so much going for it that you’ll want to come back again and again. Not only is foodie culture a Big Deal here (fish tacos and margaritas are menu MVPs), but the city also hosts the lively Carnaval festival during winter. Renting an Ensenada vacation rental puts you in the heart of everything, from crazy cool beer festivals to beautiful beaches to sparkling sunsets.

Good grub, perfect parties, and terrific tours

If you’re all about grub, head straight for the seafood market and get acquainted with the street vendors peddling everything from clam cocktail to shellfish. Since you love those sea creatures, burn off the cals strolling along Ensenada Bay. Who knows? You may spot a dolphin, gray whale, or sea lion in the distance. If you’re up at all hours, it’s worth experiencing the famed Ensenada nightlife—salsa the night away or catch a live musical act. Of course, touring the area is a must, whether you’re riding horseback in the desert or diving through the crisp azure waters.

Don’t miss a drop of Ensenada’s best

There’s no shortage of attractions in Baja California’s third largest city. Indulge your inner historian and soak up local culture at Museo Historico Regional de Ensenada. Equally historic—though perhaps less reserved—is Hussong’s Cantina, a lively bar that’s been mixing cocktails since 1892. The revered Galeria Perez Meillon is a great spot to gain new appreciation for Mexican artwork. If you happen to be a wine buff, you’ll flush with joy at Baja California’s incredible wine country. Book a tour so you don’t miss a sip of the good stuff.

Typically arid, with comfy temperatures

Dry and warm from summer into early fall, Ensenada is very characteristic of typical arid climates. It doesn't rain much even during the colder periods of the year, but temperatures do dip into the 50-degree range. Summertime is more of a comfortable affair, with brilliant sunshine and temps that never really rise far above 80 degrees. You'd be in the middle of a miracle if you booked your Ensenada vacation rental and experienced even a flake of snow—it’s extremely rare, and not quite in line with what you'd expect of balmy Mexico weather.

When wildlife calls, head to Ensenada

If you love wildlife, you’ll be in absolute heaven booking an Ensenada vacation rental. At any given moment, you may spot great white sharks (it’s one of the world’s most enviable spots to observe them!), sea lions, otters, or coyotes. If the sight of killer waves impresses you, Isla Todos Santos boasts crests that soar as high as 60 feet. It’s also worth checking out La Bufadora, the second largest marine geyser on the planet. Beach life, of course, is numero uno, so don’t miss sandy San Miguel Beach or the more tranquil Estero Beach.
