Living in southern California, I am lucky to have so many amazing places to go and things to see in a single day trip. I have not been to Mexico in years, partially because it has not been very safe and also because no one really tells you about all the other cool stuff there is there once you are too old to be hashtaging spring break!
This past Sunday made the drive down in search of something delicioso.
If you have a chance to make a trip yourself sometime, I do recommend getting on the road early. We headed out of Long Beach by 7:45AM and made it over the border by 10. Granted our driver thought she was racing Speedy Gonzalez, but also there was no traffic.
Originally we were just planning on one stop in Puerto Nuevo, but we arrived so early that decided to just keep driving. And driving. And driving and with no end in sight, we ended up on a gorgeous peninsula called La Bufadora
We grabbed a quick bite, had a drink and perused the trinkets and treats for a bit. I scored some sweet aviators that called for a quick outfit modification before jumping back in the car and heading up the coast to Ensenada.
Ensenada was pretty live with people and street performers and the weather could not have been better. It was a beautiful sunny day. We could have easily kept snacking on elotes and cocos and spent all of our pesos on more souvenirs, but we piled in the car one more time to make our way to the main reason for the trip… lobster!
The lobster was so yum, the view was to die for and I was in great company. Getting back into the United States was a bit of an adventure to say the least, but that’s a story for another time.
