Northern Mexico Vineyards Route

Ensenada, Mexicali, La Rumorosa, Tecate, Valle de Guadalupe

Mexicali, the capital city of Baja California, is a destination that receives hundreds of tourists annually for its cultural and entertainment diversity. Tour downtown and admire the architecture of its historic buildings, such as the neoclassical cathedral. Curiously, its gastronomy ranges from Mexican food to Chinese food, which became popular after the arrival of migrants from China at the end of the 19th century. Here you can also visit the Sol del Niño Museum, special for families, the Parque de Las Energías Alternas (Alternative Energy Park) or the zoológico del Bosque de la Ciudad (City Forest Zoo); You can also visit the salty lagoon and the Cañón de Guadalupe (Guadalupe Canyon), literally an oasis in the desert.

On your way to Tecate you will arrive at La Rumorosa, an area of ​​wonderful desert scenery, surrounded by rocky mountains. Visit the town to eat and refresh yourself and take a detour to the Vallecito, an archaeological site that will surprise you with its engravings and cave paintings. Don't forget to stop at the Mirador and take the best photos with the impressive valley in the background.

Later you will arrive at Tecate, a colonial Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) in the middle of the desert landscape. Take a walk through its square and be sure to visit the Museo Comunitario (Community Museum) dedicated to the Kumiai culture. This beautiful town owes its name Tecate to the beer brand, so you cannot miss the Beer Tour where you will learn everything about its manufacturing and importance.

Then you will arrive at the Valle de las Palmas (Las Palmas Valley) and the Valle de Guadalupe (Guadalupe Valley), places that take you to know the area with the highest wine production in Mexico. Its museum and wine houses invite you to know its history and production process. We recommend you to do a wine tasting and enjoy its cuisine at one of its restaurants while you watch the sunset. To rest, you can choose one of its many lodging options throughout the area.

And to conclude, visit Ensenada, an important tourist port facing the Pacific. This destination stands out for its gastronomy that ranges from fish and seafood to prime steaks to delight your palate. Spend a day on one of its beaches while having a cold beer or if you prefer, continue visiting its renowned wine houses. Get to know La Bufadora, one of the main attractions of the place where the sea collides with the rocks and expels the water upwards in a spectacular way. Walk along its boardwalk and admire the huge cruise ships that come to visit, or stroll down Calle Primera (1st Street), full of shops, restaurants and bars that will liven up your stay.
