Ensenada can be a cheap town. We enjoyed the new science museum at the entrance to the port. IIRC adults were $5, seniors are $2. Geared towards school age kids. Signage is in Spanish and English. Check out both levels, the lower level is geology, conservation etc. make sure to experience the Shake House. Upstairs is regional history. Along the remodeled Malecon (boardwalk) is a very decent play area. In town, there is a military barracks that is very interesting, takes about 10 minutes to look thru. Free but Donations are accepted.
Recommend three places to eat, all take USD, none should be more than $10pp- El Haciendo Del Charro on Ave Lopez, it has a rotisserie in the window (avoid the fries, they're lousy) ; Taqueria Lindo, between Papas n Beer and Hussongs, very good but very small can be hard to find seating for a large group; up towards Segundo from Taqueria Linda is a Michoacána ice cream shop, Popsicles and cones run about $1USD; Guadalajara on Macheros is great for a large group. We have taken many people to these three restaurants over the years.

Good place to go in Ensenada...........https://youtu.be/FBIWDyGtZzQHow do you get there from the cruise terminal?
How do you get there from the cruise terminal?
It's the white building, across the street and a bit to the right from the cruise port. Used to be visible from the ship but the science museum blocks the view.
Some of the tours stop here.
