We had a blast all week in Valle de Guadeloupe, with a day in Ensenada.
So close to LA and such great cuisine and wineries and physical beauty. Stayed at Bruma - absolutely gorgeous small hotel. Used a wonderful Tour Guide (Karina Campos https://www.tiajuanatours.com/blog) who made all our reservations (hotel, restaurants, wine tasting, horseback riding etc.) and took care of every little detail, all for a very reasonable price. All the driving, including pick-up and drop-off in LA was included, so no worries about drinking and driving (or, more likely, just getting lost AF).
Scallops in Brown Butter
Pork Salpicon w/ Avocado and Tomatillo (one of our best dishes we had in Valle)

It’s such a bummer Diego Hernandez’s Verlaine was such a flop here. His food in Valle is just incredible.
Can’t wait to return!
