Ensenada Mexico Hotels

George asks…

Are the mexicans going to put the wall so the gringos from California can’t go to Mexico??

Tijuana answers:

Do you mean, “Are the Mexicans going to build a wall so gringos from California cannot go to Mexico?”

They don’t have to. There is already a wall along the border to prevent illegal immigration into the United States. American that cross the border into Mexico to spend their money in the hotels, bars, and resorts in Mexico do so at the legal border crossings. Mexico actually needs these individuals coming across the border, as the largest segment of quantifiable legal income in the Mexican border regions (Tijuana, Ensenada, etc.), they represent a significant source of revenue for businesses in these areas.

Don’t be ignorant. You think that there is some kind of “invasion” of “gringos” into Mexico, but there is only tourism and trade that benefits Mexico. Why don’t you go back to your Chicano Studies program director and ask them to start providing some kind of beneficial education that you can use to enlighten yourself.

David asks…

Thinking about getting married in Mexico (actually Baja, CA). When is the best time to go?

Tijuana answers:

Are you trying to plan an indoor wedding or an outdoor wedding? That might make a difference. We’ve been camping several times in Baja during the summer, and even in early June it can be super hot and dry. (Even worse in July, August and early September.) Would make even the most excited bride a little cranky.

Having been a bridesmaid in a 90-95 degree outdoor wedding, I can tell ya that you don’t want your wedding party and guests getting heatstroke. The ocean actually reflects heat right back at you when you get married on the coast (I speak from experience). Talk about a buzzkill – by 2pm all of the guests had retreated to their air conditioned/ceiling fan hotel rooms. Too much heat is not fun, especially for old people.

So I’d say that if you are hoping for an outdoor wedding in Baja, the best time might be somewhere in the Spring (March, April, May) or in the mid-Fall (October). Indoor weddings are nice all of the time, if you find a location you love. There are some great places in Loreto, and in Cabo. Ensenada too.

Good luck! Congratulations!

Sandy asks…

What do you like the most about Hanoi.?

For example: the people, food, scenery, hotel, culture,etc.

Tijuana answers:

What I like most about Ha Noi is:

1) Meeting my wife

2) Getting married there

The rest of what I like about Ha Noi falls well behind the above. Here is a short list of other things that I like about Ha Noi unrelated to my wife:

Hoan Kiem Lake – The epicenter of Ha Noi. It is absolutely beautiful and quite possibly the best place in the world to people watch.

The Old Quarter – The first time through the Old Quarter was information overload. All kind of things happening anywhere you look. Shopping is excellent. Eating is incredible. Drinking at a Bia Hoi and people watching is an incredible experience.

The Night Market – The largest flea market that I’ve ever been to. Every Friday, Saturday night the street between Hoan Kiem Lake and ??ng Xuân market is turned into a very long flea market, with everything imagined sold there.

Minh’s Jazz Bar – In the Old Quarter about two blocks from the Tourist Center next to Hoan Kiem Lake. It’s unbelievable that an authentic jazz bar is located in the heart of Hanoi. Be prepared to pay U.S. Prices for drinks though.

Bia Toi Tiep (a.k.a. Bia Toilette) – A very popular restaurant, bar and nightclub. They have a microbrewery, great food (native or Western) and great service. This is like Hussong’s Cantina in Ensenada, B.C., Mexico, where every ex-patriots or tourist must visit at least once when in Ha Noi.

The Museums – There are more museums in Ha Noi than you can shake a stick at. My favorite is the Museum of Ethnology, where you can learn about the history of the Vietnamese people and the numerous cultures within Vietnam today.

The Red River Boat Tour – An all day boat tour along the Red River originating from Ha Noi. Visit several pagodas along the way.

Bát Tràng – A world famous ceramic village just outside of Ha Noi. Everything that can be made of pottery is there and very cheap.

Visiting Family – Always a warm welcome visiting family there. There is always a lot of food and usually a lot of alcohol. Many times, some great stories are told too.

Eating – My favorite food, ban cuon, originates from Ha Noi, and I can’t eat enough if it. They make it better there than my Ba Ngoai could ever make it (sorry Grandma). Pho from a street restaurant is not only a meal, but also an experience.

Riding Motorbikes Through the Ha Noi
This blows away ANY amusement park ride. My life was in literally my hands. One wrong move and I would have 1,000 Ha Noi Viets run over me in a minute. An absolute adrenaline rush.

I can go on and on…

The absolute beat thing about Ha Noi (and all of Vietnam) is the people. They are the most friendliest and nicest people that I have ever met in my life, and that makes Ha Noi one of the best places in the world for me to visit.
