Small Mexican communities like Erendira, a tiny village in Ensenada, Mexico, are quickly becoming popular travel destinations for tourists in the region of Baja California. Located about 100 kilometers away from the capital city of the region, Ensenada, this little town has a population of just under 1500 people. The main source of income for the community is fishing. You can reach the town by taxi from Jaujilla Airport, which is about fifteen kilometers away from the town. If you are staying at a hostel in Erendira, be sure to try out the fresh seafood served there.
In addition to the main population of the city, there is a seasonal population of about 1500 people, which is a testimony to how attractive the city, coast, and surrounding region can be. It is not a place you come to if you want beautiful hostels, resorts, and commercialized beaches. The beaches at Erendira are isolated, secluded, and raw in nature. There is no major development here.
However, the beaches can be very attractive if getting in touch with nature is what you want. The rough seas in this part of the world become extremely calm on good days. There are also many natural pool) formed by the seawater and rock barriers near the sea. Ask the locals at your hostel for directions to the best of them. If you are here for surfing, the rough seas have great surf breaks nearby too.
If you are a fan of history, there is evidence of prehistoric cavemen in the region. The shells, snails, and mussels they once gathered remain to this day. According to leading archaeologists, these shells date back nearly 10,000 years. While at Erendira, you can also watch the migration of marine life like whales and dolphins. If you want to birdwatch instead, there are birds of prey roaming the skies. For landlubbers, the occasional coyote or bobcat can be seen prowling the open spaces in the region.
