Avenida Lopez Mateos (also known as Paseo Calle Primera) is the main tourism Street of Ensenada and is about 1 kilometer long (between Avenida Ruiz and Avenida Blancarte )and the side streets next to it also have a variety of shops selling everything. Avenida Lopez Mateos is lined with paved red bricked sidewalks which are sort of slippery. Since this is the main tourist zone (also known as a tourist trap hehehe) expect to have higher prices than the average but you can also haggle on the prices if you know how to haggle ok. This is the main souvenir drag in Ensenada. Although none of the stores are particularly noteworthy and prices tend to be fairly uniform, you will find the largest selection of goods in the city here. Small hole-in-the-wall shops selling everything from postcards, beach gear and t-shirts to paintings, sombreros, and woven baskets. try to buy tequila at Licores Plaza or t-shirts at Chamuco!
