This Place in Ensenada Did the Unicorn Frappucino Thing Before it Was Cool

Enjoy of cosmic beverages and have a colorful moment at "Contenedor Cósmico"

As many of you know, Starbucks released its special drink of the season called the "Unicorn Frappuchino" and it drove many people crazy, creating an avalanche of instagram pictures, stories, and more.

Well, this idea was already part of the menu of another place in Ensenada called "El Contenedor Cósmico" (Cosmic Conteiner), where colorful drinks full of flavor await YOU and your friends. The experience will be definitely cosmic and totally delicious.

Contenedor Cósmico is a magical place where you can feel like a child and a space explorer at the same time, and it's so good that last year was nominated for Best Urban Project at the Best Of Baja 2016 Awards. This place is the perfect mix of a Cambrian style and an incredible philosophy you can see all over its walls with decorations "out of space."

The goal of this place was to offer original drinks and food to their clients, so they came up with the idea of "Cosmic Coffees",beverages with lots of color, flavor, and completely inspired in outer space. You can find cold and hot drinks that will make your palate and eyes very happy, for the presentation is unique.

Flavors are completely natural and made solely with products of the region, fact that attracts more locals and tourists to this "space paradise."

Yes, there you have it, a place that's better than Starbucks in flavor and price; the only problem is that Contenedor Cósmico is a bit far, for you'll have to drive to the "Zona de Maneadero" in Ensenada, located on the Bufadora Road. Anyway, if you're planning on having a beautiful rest from the world, give Contenedor Cósmico a chance and be amazed!

Exact location:

Km. 1 Camino a la Bufadora Maneadero, Baja California, Mexico
