Cruise Day 3-4 (Ensenada, Mexico)

Our next stop was at Ensenada, Mexico.  We had a tour set up to go to La Bufadora, which is about 45 minutes away from the port.  La Bufadora is a natural blowhole, which exists due to a cave in a crevice that fills with water due to the tide and as the water recedes air forces water into the air.

The waves hit this crevice and as it receded…

We sat and watched it for awhile…

The view was gorgeous

And we utilized my new remote again

And then we had to walk ‘the gauntlet’ back…about a half mile of shops where the owners met you in the road trying to get you into their shop!

I hated it…and stuck next to Bob the whole time.  We did eat the best churros that I have ever had in my whole life!  They were unbelievably amazing!

From there, we headed to Hotel Riviera del Pacifico which was a beautiful hotel built in 1930 during Prohibition for traveling Americans.

The hotel is now a museum and hosts different functions.

Mahogany, murals, the hotel was built with amazing materials

The gardens were gorgeous as well…

We walked downtown Ensenada a bit, and then headed back to the ship.  We found these statues at Three Heads Park by accident and found out they are of Mexican heroes.

Once again, we saw a beautiful sunset once onboard again

We enjoyed an empty ship for the better part of the evening 🙂

The middle of the ship has a gorgeous balconied area…

And enjoyed our favorite warm chocolate melting cake every night with dinner!

Our last day was spent at sea and we played lots of mini golf, went down the waterslides, spent lots of time in the hot tubs, and just soaked in the sun!
