Ensenada Mexico Beaches

Charles asks…

HELP !!! Traveling to Mexico and need advice !!!?

Hey folks. In a couple of weeks, I will be heading to Ensenada, Mexico on a little Baja cruise. I am really excited to explore this area of Mexico and was wondering for

1) Tips for safe traveling
2) Places to see
3) and finally . . . Shopping advice!!! I have heard that in mexico and Ensenada that there are tons of artists and booths that sell stuff for great prices.
Do you recommend any stores?
Are you able to haggle the price ?
What sort of things do they sell?
What type of jewelry, handbags, etc do they have?
What are some great deals you have found ? I am dying to know !

Thanks to anyone who stops by and takes the time to reply. Have a great day ! Peace

Tijuana answers:

1) Use common sense like you would here in the states when you are in Mexico. Stick to public streets & places. Travel in pairs (if possible). Always be aware of your surroundings. Don’t look for trouble.
2) When you arrive look for local magazines or newsletters with recommendations for places to see. The cruise ship should have something for you.
3) You can haggle, and if you walk away they will lower their prices as well. Generally most vendors start out with high prices knowing that you will ask them to come down. “Cuanto cuesta” means how much? “Lo menos?” means, what’s the lowest you’ll take.

Don’t shop in tourist areas like mercados that are close to a port or a busy street. If you can get a local to help you, look for mercados that cater more to Mexicans and that’s where you’ll find more bargains on evverything you’re looking for. Mercados/flea markets will carry everything you can think of generally.

The best deals I have found were no where near the beach! Sorry! If you can travel a little inland travel to Tonala, Jalisco which is a suburb of Guadalara. You will found some crazy bargains in Tonala. The very first time that I went there I spent $100 dollars and ended up with 8 Christmas gifts for family & friends and everyone loved what I bought them. Tonala has tons of artesanias – like pottery, glass ware, artwork, some jewelry, and more at ridiculously low prices. I go there every chance I have.

Tijuana answers:

Yes, I’ve been to MX over a 100 times, both business and pleasure.
There are some cities and areas in MX I’d prefer not to travel in or linger in but they are certainly outweighed by all the other places that are beautiful.
‘The prople are freindly, they are family oriented, have a great culture and wonderful, exciting history.
The mountains, deserts and beaches are breath taking.
We’ve driven down to Manzanillo, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan many times. We’ve driven all over Baja, mostly South Baja but also in Ensenada, Rosarita, TJ, Otay, Tecate, Mexicali.
There are very pretty senoritas and senoras in MX, also!!!

Betty asks…

I love Mexico! Have been to PV, Mazatlan, cabo, Playa Del Carmen. What next?

I am 64,single and about to retire. I live in CA and looking for cheap places ( hopefully w/ swimming beach ) that I can visit. Thanks!

Tijuana answers:

I visited coastal cities and towns with my father when I was younger (1960 to 1980). I have been to Rosarito, Ensenada, San Felipe, Golfo de Santa Clara, Manzanillo (not Mazatlan), Acapulco, and Quintana Roo. I have heard than San Quintin, San Carlos and Puerto Penasco are nice to visit. There’s also Puerto Escondido, Island of Cozumel (near Playa Del Carmen), Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Merida, Veracruz-Boca Del Rio. I have included an internet search for what you’re looking for and the word retirement just happened to appear. You can call or visit these smaller (and cheaper) places and ask if they have swimming beaches.
