Ensenada -  a beautiful port city of 690,000, located right on the Pacific coast. The second largest city on the Baja Peninsula thrives on the import industry, tourism, agriculture, commerce, and fishing. Ensenada, although a relatively young city, was discovered about 150 years ago by Spanish missionaries, and has grown rapidly due to the intense migratory movements from the rest of the country toward Baja. Hope for a better life is what brings people to this area. The City of Children is located about 5 miles north of Ensenada - in the El Sauzal community, in a beautiful desert setting about a mile from the ocean. The ocean’s cool breeze is always welcome.


When exiting the San Diego airport, head south on Interstate 5 towards the border. After crossing the border, continue south 70 miles to Ensenada. Upon reaching the El Sauzal community north of Ensenada, turn left (east) on Tecate Highway and go 1 mile - look for the tall white wall and the City of Children entrance on your left.
