Food Scene

A somewhat high-end restaurant with somewhat high prices and an amazing ocean view. When we were there last, we saw a school of dolphins playing in the sea below. The portions are big so unless you like left-overs, we recommend you order from the appetizer menu if you are wanting to keep costs down. garyslafondabaja.com Ensenada Km 59.5, La Mision 22765 Phone +52 646 155 0308 GPS Coordinates 32.1188767 -116.88484949999997 0308

The Atmosphere at Acua is great. Having the open atmosphere and being able to see everything happening in the ocean below is wonderful. The service is great, the music is good, the bathroom is clean. Be sure to sit in a spot where you can see the ocean waves splashing against the rock jetty below. They have a playground on the premises and last time we were there they were offering a $3 menu before 10:00am. Note: They are Closed Mon-Thur GPS 32.366101 -117.061755

An amazing restaurant located in Valle de Guadelupe who was voted the best Breakfast in the world and who has won awards for having the best Muchaka in Baja. Their Corn cakes are also worth writing home about. Note: If you use GPS to get there, do NOT let Siri take you through a metal gate. Continue straight down main road until you are re-directed. Also, if it has rained recently it is best to postpone your trip until roads have dried since the last mile is down a bumpy dirt road which often washes out in wet weather.

Playas La Mision beach is located directly off the toll road along a strip populated by little fruit stands and shops selling treats. The sand is soft and beautiful. I am told there is decent snorkeling out here, so bring your gear. However, you will want a bring a suit in the cooler months. This is not far enough south to enjoy a warm current during the winter or early spring. It gets extremely cold. There are small permanent thatch roof cabanas that offer nice shade.
