Ensenada is the fifth largest municipality in the world with 52,000 km2, 1500 km of coastline on two seas: the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of California. A population density of 9 inhabitants per km2 (California has 92 per km2, Yucatán 48 per km2, Quintana Roo 31 per km2, Arizona 20 per km2 and Florida 108 per km2) shows that Ensenada is a spot where space is congruent with nature.
Ensenada is noted for its contrasts in vegetation, climate and topography, with the large desert areas standing out and bordering on the Gulf of California, the pine forests of San Pedro Mártir and the Sierra de Guadalupe, in addition to the eastern range which is cloaked in white for a few weeks in winter.
