We stopped into this quaint store which features jewellery made by young ladies who live in a safe home in Ensenada. All purchases provide housing, food, clothing and education for these amazing young ladies.

Fun shopping experience. Make sure to stay on First Street, the side roads get a little scary. We found some amazing deals on fun cheap toys for our kids. It’s a must to experience

Best advice is to find a place with a set price for a bucket of beers. Don't get fooled into paying more than normal. The guys will do whatever they can to get a dollar out of you. Don't trust them and ask around before...More
