Here are our recommended port adventures for visitors to Ensenada, based on Disney’s current list (just nine excursions) and the offerings of other cruise lines:

Low Budget: Nearly every Ensenada excursion fits this category. Several tours will include visits downtown plus a stop at La Bufadora, but even though priced in the $20-$35 range, these can be done even cheaper with a shuttle van or taxi. Wine Country Tour (EN03, $39/$29 ages 3-9, 4-4.5 hours) takes you to the Calafia and Guadalupe valleys for wine tastings, snacks, then back to Ensenada for some shopping. Still, the Santo Tomas winery is right in the heart of town at 666 Miramar, with tastings priced from $8. Is a tour really needed?

Big Budget: We suspect Disney Cruise Line may add a couple of higher-priced tours, most likely involving visits to out-of-town wineries. Though currently not listed, there may again be a Bajamar Golf Resort excursion ($129, ages 10 and up, 6-6.5 hours). 18 holes of links-style golf, greens fees and a golf cart included. Club rentals ($40) and shoe rentals are extra, which will bring the cost up a bit.

Nature: The Active excursions, below, mostly fit this category as well. While not everyone considers an off-road jeep tour as back-to-nature, Jeep Safari Adventure Tour (EN11, $79, ages 8 and up, 3.5 hours) gets you out into the countryside and also stops at a winery . Who’s designated driver?

Active: At the moment it's sea kayaking or horseback riding, so take your pick! Our pick? La Bufadora Kayak Tour (EN13, $75 ages 8 and up, 4-4.5 hours), as you’ll see dramatic La Bufadora without running the gamut of vendors.

Food and Beverage: Taste of Mexico (EN09, $46/$35 ages 3-9, 4-4.5 hours) is a restaurant-based salsa-making lesson that includes a walking tour of Zona Centro. We're not thrilled that beverages cost extra. We prefer Wine Country Tour (EN03), which we described above in Budget.

Armchair: More like beach chair! You may have your choice of beach excursions, though none are currently listed. If offered, the San Nicolas Hotel excursion will be more family-friendly and includes lunch ($39/$35 ages 3-9, 5 hours), Papas & Beer is young adult-friendly, and lunch is extra ($40 all ages, 5-6 hours).
