An outdoor shower is available for guests returning from the beach. They are numerous outdoor tables and chairs on the grounds and on three levels of spacious terraces with ocean views.

The Villa is private, quiet and well suited for enjoying life in relaxing pleasant surroundings. It is also great for entertaining – indeed you could have several independent social gatherings at once. Beachcombing is a ten minute walk away. Bikes are available for the beach or mountain biking. World famous surfing, sport fishing, diving, boating, whale watching (January to March), horseback riding and golf (Baja Country Club and Baja Mar Ocean Front Golf Resort) are nearby. To the north some 40 minutes away you enter the Valle de Guadalupe which features wine tasting at numerous wineries, superb cuisine in several outstanding restaurants and a well attended wine festival throughout August (“vendimia”) See “Baja Fresh”, an enticing description of the Valle de Guadalupe in a N.Y. Times travel section article (website: hidden)2012/11/15/baja-fresh/ To the south some 15 minutes away the Estero Beach resort has an excellent beachfront restaurant and bar. Some 40 minutes away you can enjoy a stunning view of the bay, with tamale stands along the way before arriving at the second highest sea geyser in the world (la bufadora). Las Canadas, some 12 miles south offers swimming, boating and water slides.

The downtown cultural arts center (CEARTE) is next to the fabulous Hotel Riviera (Jack Dempsey was the original owner) that is now a museum and cultural center and along with CEARTE hosts art exhibitions and cultural events year round. (both are right across from the Hotel Cortez) Live theater or music concerts are weekly events. Ensenada’s night life also includes sport bars, karaoke bars and floor shows and some with table dancing. For the younger set Papas and Beers is a lively disco. For the more sedate but drinking crowd Husong’s has been serving beer, tequila and margaritas to an enthusiastic bi-national crowd since 1892.
For local wine tasting the Santo Tomas bodega (6th and Miramar) and L.A. Chetto just north of Ensenada on the road to Tijuana are excellent. Ensenada now has its own microbrewery, Agua Mala, housed at the Motel California also on the road to Tijuana just north of L.A. Chetto on the opposite side of the highway.

Ensenada cuisine: fish tacos and much more

Dieticians have long recognized the superior value of the Mediterranean diet (fish, salads, pasta, tomato sauces, wine, olive oil and fish). You can find it all locally produced in Ensenada along with delicious Mexican sauces, spices and flavors. Ensenada’s fish tacos are most popular but not as healthy or as varied as local popular marisco (shell fish) stands, e.g. Mariscos Guerrense, at Calle Primera and Alvarado, that serve tostados or cocktails with generous portions of fish or shrimp ceviche (prepared with lemon juice only), octopus, mussels, crab, sea snail, fish pate, link cod, sea urchin or black clam. For even more creativity do not miss Mario’s Tacos de Mariscos that features tacos of salmon, or machaca de atun (shredded tuna), chili rellenos stuffed with shrimp and incredible sauces. (#351 Rayon between 3rd and 4th Street (calle)) Or if your taste lies more towards pizzas, delicious wood fired pizzas are served at Covelli’s (Miramar 637, live music on Wednesday night).
