Driving to Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico

So much fun driving to Ensenada

Driving South across the border is such an adventure in itself.
From Los Angeles to San Diego it took us about 2 hours with stopping for breakfast which was Hummus and pita bread in a resting area.
Then heading to Tijuana. The minute you cross the boarder you already feel you are in different culture and that is great b/c just 2 hours and half from Los Angeles and you are in Mexico. There are two streets one called "Couta" that means toll highway (which we took) you need to pay $2.30. Between Tijuana to Ensenada there are 3 of these station. You end up paying $6.60. The other alternative is the old street where it goes through the small towns and you don't have to pay.
We stopped in Down-town Ensenada for Lunch...Eating Taco "el-pastor"...the kids are so happy when food is coming to the table...and it is great not to cook during vacation. We continue to our destination which is "LA Canada" which is camping ground that have all the facilities that a family needs.
The kids swum in the pools, ate fish tacos, and had ice-creams. Yury and I did Canopy. It was great experience for both of us.
In this trip, we discovered the old route of wines...It appears that Baja California has more than 60 wineries.
We went to one of the Winery names Santo Tomas. We had wine tasting, cheese, bread. Bader, my husband bought some wine to take with us home. I didn't know that Mexico has good quality wine and for cheaper price.
