Ensenada Life

Ensenada like so many other Mexican towns and cities — even those on the coast — is affordable to buy into and affordable to live in. The population growth in the region has also been attracting some major commercial investors to the region; and so modern, avant-garde amenities, like super-centers selling imported U.S. goods, modern shopping centers, cinemas, good restaurants and modern healthcare centers and clinics are just some of the modern amenities being enjoyed by residents in the  area. For people who want a real taste of Mexico and also want some U.S.-style commercial comforts to support their lifestyle, Ensenada is a great option.
