In Ensenada, you’ll find Aztec art, superb beaches, and some of the best wine and vineyards in all of Mexico.

Take a wine tasting and vineyard tour at the Bodegas de Santo Tomas, Baja’s oldest winery. Finish your day with a delightful stroll around the Parque de la Bandera, where you’ll see dancing fountains lit in rainbow colors and choreographed to music for an outdoor show that’s sure to entertain.
On Catalina Island, dive deep below the ocean’s surface on a submarine expedition to marvel at the colorful and diverse marine life. Continue your thrill-seeking on a zip line eco tour through the Descanso Canyon, where you’ll soar 600 feet above the ground. Unwind with a relaxing walk through the Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden, located atop Avalon Canyon, where breathtaking views accent displays of indigenous and non-native plants and a majestic monument built with beautiful quarried Catalina Stones.
