Dates: February 7-12
Place: Cosetera Ensenada
Carnaval Ensenada is a huge gathering of locals from Baja and the Southwest U.S., as well as those who travel from other areas of Mexico. The five day event is the third-largest Carnaval in Mexico only behind Mazatlan and Veracruz.
The theme for 2013 is Festejemos México. The focus will be upon traditional Mexican culture. For this even there will be performers of all kinds including dancers, bands, artists and musicians. The parade is a spectacle to see!
Ensenada is 70 miles south of Tijuana at the San Ysidro border crossing. The Scenic (toll) Road is reliable and easy to drive. Transportation can also be arranged with various bus companies and tour groups.
