A whirlwind hop around the port city’s famed seafood stands, called by many as among the best in the world.
When globetrotting food lover Anthony Bourdain recently described Ensenada’s seafood-centric mariscos stands as ‘Le Bernardin-quality seafood in the street,’ it was of little surprise to CTH.
With its surrounding two seas, Baja California was primed to become one of the world’s great centers of ingredient-driven seafood cuisines.
Ensenada CTH style
CTH's Ensenada outings are small, intimate gatherings. A blogger once described Club Tengo Hambre outings this way: 'It felt like very cool friends were showing us around their town.' That's what CTH is all about.
Our aim is to celebrate both the social aspect of food in bringing people together and the vibrant scene that makes Ensenada one of the best places in the world for seafood + craft beer.
Our day trips are perfect for bachelor/ette parties, birthday celebrations, team-building experiences, you name it! Any occasion that deserves good food and drinks.

Your Private CTH Daycation in a nutshell.
THE RENDEZVOUS POINT
Your CTH Host will meet you on the US side of the border, in front of the McDonalds at the San Ysidro Trolley station. We will walk into Tijuana as a group, and guide you through Mexican customs, then meet our transportation on the other side.
EAT. DRINK. REPEAT.
Once aboard, we welcome everyone w/ an agave spirit tasting and embark on a 1.5 hour scenic drive to Ensenada. Over the course of the afternoon, our roving supper club will visit our favorite places in Ensenada’s booming curbside culinary scene, eating our way through the best of the city’s famed street food. In between, we’ll visit one of Baja’s oldest cantina for a round of beers. At the end, we’ll wash it all down with craft beer at a renowned Baja brewery.
ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END
With full bellies + slight buzzes, we’ll head back to the border, where our transportation will drop us off at the pedestrian crossing on the Tijuana side. You will cross through the US Customs by foot. The exit of the facility is right where we started, at the San Ysidro Trolley Station. Border waits can be unpredictable.
— Can I add more guests to my reservation?
Absolutely! As soon as your friends and family know about your plans, we are sure that more would like to join the fun.

ASAP! Weekends and US holidays are very popular across all of our destinations. We have a first come, first served / payed reservations.
— What places do we visit? Can we choose?
We are very proud of the experiences and curation of our Ensenada trips. We have a roster of places we frequent and have built relationships with over the years. The food and drink spots we visit deliver up-to-CTH standards and tell an important story of the region. We share the itinerary designed by CTH, as the date gets closer with your paid reservation in place. We welcome you to sending us more details about the profile of you and your guests, we want to make sure everyone spends a great day with us.
The itinerary is is designed to make sense geographically so that you spend less time in the vehicle and more time eating + drinking, without compromising the experience.

— Is food + drinks included?
All food and drinks are included. Gratuity for our vendors is also included with your reservation (Does not include your host’s and driver’s optional gratuity).
Bring small change to buy extra items that are not included in the program, like bottles of wine, souvenirs, or simply for extra rounds. Some places do accept credit cards, with exception of the small family-owned establishments. US dollars are accepted.
— I'm spending time in Baja. Can we meet in Mexico?
We have a designated meeting spot in Tijuana and along the path to Ensenada. Custom pick-up locations outside of the path of Tijuana to Ensenada, will have an extra fee.
Outings with custom pick-ups along the path, and in Ensenada do not change the cost of the outing since our hosts and transportation partners are based out of Tijuana.
— Do I need a passport?
Yes. All guests need a valid passport to enter both Mexico and USA. In the last years, the walk into Mexico has been reconfigured and requests a valid passport to enter. Additionally, you are required to fill out the Forma Migratoria Múltiple (FMM) to enter Mexico. More on that in your confirmation email.
Global Entry is only recognized by the U.S. and Mexico does not honor it as a substitute to your passport.
— How much alcohol are we allowed to bring back into the US?
U.S. customs only allows you to cross 1 liter of alcohol per person who are 21 and over.
We know! We know! As we always say, more reasons to visit Baja.
