Here are some Points of Interest to get you started!

GRAY WHALE WATCHING
The gray whale is the most common species seen near the coast of Baja.

James asks…

I am getting married in Rosarito Beach in May and am looking for a good, honest florist in Ensenada…?

We have spoken to a florist in San Diego and will be seeing someone in T.J. next week. However the wedding is taking place on Mother’s Day and the San Diego florist has already advised us that the price will be almost double the normal rate because of the holiday. So…since the wedding is in Mexico, we figure a florist in Ensenada may have much better rates and would be about the same distance from Rosarito anyway. Anybody know any good Baja florists you’d like to share? Thanks!

Tijuana answers:

Yes….just a few minutes south of Ensenada…there is a florist on the right (south) side of transpeninsular highway. Moments before the Estero Beach turnoff. I don’t know the name of her shop, however I have used her for mother’s day. Excellent & affordable. Enjoy & congratulations!
