Ensenada Highlights & Mexican Fiesta


  • 21/2
    hrs Estimate Duration

Watch a fascinating performance of traditional Mexican songs and dances in a once flamboyant hotel that now serves as Ensenada’s premier cultural center. While driving through town, you will see many of its highlights, but none is quite so historical and prestigious as the former Hotel Riviera del Pacifico. This rambling Spanish-style resort was built in 1930 and originally held a casino that Al Capone supposedly frequented. Upon arriving, you will be greeted by a mariachi band dressed in colorful costumes that will serenade you with songs that reflect the region’s roots. As an accompaniment, you will be served a margarita, an iconic Mexican beverage that is said to have been invented at the hotel. In time, you will settle in for an authentic folkloric performance that is sure to be memorable. Free time follows, during which you may take pictures with the band, shop for handicrafts and see the ballroom where Bing Crosby and Xavier Cugat once performed.
