Explore Ensenada with a leisurely stroll through the streets of the city known as the Cinderella of the Pacific. Why such an unusual nickname? Because this forgotten corner of the Baja offers some surprising charms and its excellent spring-like climate all year round makes the city of Ensenada colorful, fun and inviting.

Driving away from the pier, take in the pleasant view of the marina and harbor; then, continue through the main plaza and learn about its signature monument that represents important figures in Mexican history. Leave the coach here and stroll down the Calle Primera -- brimming with atmosphere and packed with a multitude of restaurants, bars, cafés and craft shops.

Discover the part of town made famous by Anthony Bourdain's TV show, No Reservations. At the fish market, founded in 1950, look like a local as you browse among the wares.

Then, step into the fascinating world of tequila -- some would say the nectar of the gods. Learn about this ancient beverage at the first tequileria in the city. History, an overview of the process, and a tasting are all part of the learning curve. By the time you leave, you'll be speaking the language of silver, reposado and añejo with just a hint of olé thrown in!
