In Ensenada, like in most municipalities of the Baja California Peninsula, tourism plays a major part among the local industries. Millions of tourists, vacationers, entrepreneurs, retirees and visitors in general come to Baja California, Mexico every year, and one of the most well-visited cities in Baja is the city of Ensenada. And it is expected that with the opening of the newly renovated Proturismo Visitor Information Center, the number of tourists and entrepreneurs coming to Ensenada would greatly increase.
On the 26th of October 2007, more than a hundred invited guests, including government officials, foreign dignitaries and members of the press, were invited to witness the opening of Ensenada’s Proturismo Visitor Information Center. The event was lead by welcoming speeches from Mr. Felizardo Palacios (Proturismo Director) and Mr. Normando Novelo ( Proturism President). Also present was Mr. Carlos Gallegos, the Hotel and Motel Association President of Ensenada who was also the honorary guest for the occasion due to his many contributions to the project.
This Visitor Information Center in Ensenada has been around since 1986 and has been of tremendous help to tourists and visitors. Over the years however, the Proturismo Visitor Information Center became in great need of improvement and change, thus the renovation of this necessary establishment was undergone.
The improvement and modernization of the Proturismo Visitor Information Center in Ensenada came to be due to the funds and support of the the Ensenada City government, the Baja California State government, the Mexican federal government, the private tourism groups in Ensenada, and the Ensenada Hotel and Motel Association.
Located near the Boulevard Costero and the Calle de la Marina in Ensenada, the newly improved Ensenada Visitor Information Center now has facilities such as a spacious lobby where the information desks can be found, meeting room, a function hall, parking spaces and plenty of clean restrooms. The Ensenada Proturismo Visitor Information Center is open from 8am to 8pm on weekdays and from 9am to 1pm on weekends.
