If you are hungry for more, you can taste authentic Mexican Dishes from Baja California in Ensenada along with some sights and shopping to pick up a bottle of Tequila or some Curios on the way home. On the drive north you will be able to catch an amazing Mexican Sunset which is one of our favorites! Tag along with us for a true Baja experience that you will not find anywhere else.
