Sounds like what I have been finding out. Fly from wherever to San Diego, then: (quote from one site)
"Re: San Diego International Airport to Ensenada by Bus
It is actually pretty easy...
First you will need to take a bus (#992) from the airport terminal to the trolly station located on the left side about 2-3 blocks after the bus turns left to go into the city (hard to miss).
Then you will buy a transfer ticket (a bit cheaper since you paid for the bus already) from the station to the San Ysidro border crossing. Look for the signs that say "To San Ysidro".
You should be able to board the red Mexicoach bus at the San Ysidro trolly stop that will take you to Ensenada.
Mexicoach would be the easiest. An alternative would be to take an ABC bus down. More info on getting to the ABC station is at
So, Monkey, you could do it pretty cheaply. So could anyone on the West coast
. But if you volunteer, be sure you have the time, money
, etc. so Zee isn't disappointed again.
