Didn't realize this place was so popular...stayed in room 324. They also have RV camping (cheap).It's a gated resort with a view of seals and dolphins! I was there just recently when the seals just had pups..It is sooooo beautiful, I didn't want to leave. They have a museum, also bike and kayak rentals..They have a tennis court also, which is in better condition than some of the courts I've played on in California. It's on an ocean inlet where you can catch all sorts of fish. I met the daytime bartender at the restaurant and bar. His name is Miguel, who is a laugh a minute. He speaks perfect english and spanish. I developed a special bond with him and he helped me with my spanish. He also gave me the ins and outs of the area. From the bar you have a view of the water with a sand bar where the seals bask in the sun, until the tide comes in. Plenty of outdoor seating as well. The sand bar disappears, but the seals move across the water to the Island where they can still be seen with their pups. They have fishing cabanas that protrude into the inlet..I did try my luck at fishing when the tide came up. I didn't have too good of luck, but people around me were catching fish. They also have a beautiful pool with a bar in the center of it..What a great place.
I drove my Mercedes down and had concerns about parking in the streets of Ensenada. I've heard stories about Mexico. I was pleasantly surprised after a few days of driving around Ensenada. It is NOTHING like the stories I've heard. The people are genuine beautiful people. They are very helpful and honest even though they don't have wealth, they're wealthy in culture and honesty. I love the people there! I feel totally comfortable down there. There are Wal-marts, Home depots and all the fast food restaurants that you see in the states. Including Applebees'. I can see myself retiring there! The cost of living is incredible..
You don't have to leave Estero beach if you don't want to. They have everything you need. If you visit there, be sure to ask for Miguel at the restaurant, tell him Nick from California said hi!! I can't stress enough what a wonderful place it is....Meeting Miguel was one of my highlights of the trip...I welled up with tears as I was leaving to go back home...
