We love strolling the Avenue with all the tourist shops. I've been visiting for years and never tire of exploring this street. The old restaurants are dependable and some of the new ones look inviting. Lots of changes over the last year-positive changes.

This street has a lot of little shops to buy souvenirs, medicine, refreshments, silver etc. but that's about it. Popular bars and resuarants near by. A bit crowded at rush hour. Pro: most salesmen speak fluent English. Ensenada has way better places to go.

This street is a safe walk from where the cruise ship shuttles leave off passengers. Usually the ships provide maps of the area. This street was easy to find. If you're interested in purchasing good silver (not the street vendor silver trinkets), this is the...More
