We arrived in Ensenada early in the morning. We joined a tour this time. Itís called the Gold Coast Tour and it was a HUGE disappointment. The first stop was at the cultural center of Ensenada. The center is a historic building right across the pier where Paradise docked. Itís not pretty and quite run down. Next stop was a beach about 30 miles from Ensenada near a town called Rosita. Thereís a resort with rooms and RV sites. Not as pretty as some of the beaches along Southern California and the facilities are awful. We walked along the beach and got our hands and feet wet with seawater. We wanted to wash off the sand with the showers at the edge of the beach. We turned on the faucet, no water!!!! We went into the restroom in the restaurant of the resort, NO WATER!!!!! On the return trip, we had the choice of left the tour bus in downtown (which is not far from the pier) or returned to the ship. We wanted to walk around downtown but after these, we returned to the ship and didnít get back out again. Ensenada is a far cry from Acapulco, Cozumel, Cancun, etc.
