Port of Ensenada
When we search the meaning of “city” in a dictionary we find that “it is all the buildings and streets in which the dense and numerous population usually work in non-agricultural activities”; but when we define a city we just visited, we do not mention these factors, everything goes beyond. We talk about the customs and the warmth we found on its people, the landscapes seen during the trip, and the activities we did and we usually do not do in our hometown.

This makes us thought about what makes a port located in the peninsula of Baja California, Mexico different. We concluded that it is not only the proximity to the southern of United States border (only 70 miles away) and the facilities that it provides, or the fact that it belongs to the largest municipality in the world. What makes Ensenada different from other cities is the variety of attractions and activities you can experience on it, the warmth of its people, the unique flavor of the BajaMed food, just to mention a few.
As a popular touristic destination it offers a wide range of activities from tours to nationals parks and vineyards, to a spectacular marine geyser called “La Bufadora”, museums, beaches, sport fishing, diving, surfing, regattas, off road races, nightclubs, camps with recreational options as bike and horseback riding, lake fishing, and many more.
Ensenada’s port has the capacity of 6500 Teus (1 Teus = 1 20 ft. container) and because of its location in the Pacific Ocean basin (the region which has the highest trading activity in the world) it offers the opportunity to access the main ports and the main production and consumption centers at regional and international level, representing an important link in the development of foreign trade in the northwestern of Mexico and Southern of the United States.
Ensenada is distinguished as a progressive city that shares its beauty with the world tourism, without leaving behind its cultural, industrial and commercial activities.
