Is a short car ride, drive time from San Diego to Ensenada is about 1.5 to 2 hrs
Once you cross the border, within a minute you will be on a highway straight to Ensenada. You have the option to change to a toll-free road, but we highly recommend the scenic highway, with just three pay booths of around 2 dlls you get insurance and road assistance. We suggest to avoid driving at night since there are no street lights, besides only at daytime you get to enjoy the impressive ocean vistas that truly name it a scenic highway.
Ensenada shares weather conditions with San Diego, CA. Annual rainfall is about 12 inches and you should expect rain in winter time, although is rare to experience extreme conditions. There are over 250 sunny days per year, being July thru October the hottest months. Since Ensenada is located on the coast of Baja, expect drier conditions as you go inland.
