The November/December 2013 issue of Escapees Magazine is featuring our article Enchanting Ensenada about Mexico’s fun-filled waterfront city in northern Baja California (you can read the story from the link above).
We lived in Ensenada, Mexico, for six months as we outfitted our sailboat Groovy to go cruising, and we recently enjoyed another month there. When we first arrived nearly four years ago, we weren’t sure what we would find, but in the ensuing weeks and months we fell in love with the energy and vitality of this multifaceted coastal city.
Very much like the recent Baja Ha-Ha sailing event that took 130 sailboats on a two week voyage from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas en route to further sailing adventures in Mexico, the Escapees RV Club’s “Mexican Connection” Chapter is hosting a ten day RV rally that will bring 50 RVs from San Diego into Baja California on February 3-13, 2014.
Starting at the KOA RV park in Chula Vista, this rally will spend a week in Ensenada and then travel down to San Quintín where the RVers will regroup either to return north or to continue their road trips south to Baja hot spots like Bahía Concepción, Loreto, Los Cabos and La Paz.
Ensenada, Mexico, is a fabulous destination for RVers and cruisers alike. Lying just 70 miles south of San Diego, it is a lively university town that offers a full-flavored taste of life in Mexico, whether living aboard a sailboat in one of the two excellent marinas or staying in one of the RV parks along the shore.
