Today’s ride begins at EagleRider San Diego and crosses the border at San Ysidro to finish in Ensenada. Stop for lunch at Puerto Nuevo, Baja’s Lobster Village. Today’s ride is full of spectacular scenery, fresh lobster, and great roads!
Situated on the coastline of Bahia de Todos Santos, an inlet on the peninsula’s Gold Coast, Ensenada is an important commercial, fishing and tourist destination. Watersports including surfing, wind surfing, whale watching, sport fishing, the Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race and of course the Baja 1000/500 are just a few of the area attractions.
Ensenada’s Fish Market, the Mercado Negro, sells an amazing array of fresh fish, including tuna, shrimp, California spiny lobster, abalone, sea urchin, sardine, mackerel, seaweed and smoked marlin. Be sure to sample a local specialty, fish tacos.
South of Ensenada on the Punta Banda Peninsula is one of the largest marine geysers in North America: La Bufadora (The Blowhole).
