Hop on BC 23 and head west to La Bufadora. This famous marine geyser is one of the largest in the world and if you wait around to see some of its tumultuous activity, you can bear witness to spouts of 196 feet and above. En route to La Bufadora, you will pass quirky markets, plenty of excellent Mexican restaurants, and incredible panoramas over All Saints Bay. Back in town, one of the best things to do in Ensenada is to see how the locals live and eat.

For dinner, bypass the touristy restaurants and order a taco from one of the adored trucks in the city.
