The La Bufadora is a space in the rocky terrain of the coast where a hole blows up water jets periodically onto admiring visitors.
A true natural miracle, the water jet can rise up to a height of 20 metres! While you are at it, take in the beautiful view which surrounds the terrain or simply have a mini-picnic near the spot.

La Bufadora, Ensenada Reviews - Write a Review
This place was very cool to see! As long as you know to ignore the incessant vendors and expect to get very low end items if you buy anything at the vendor shops you won't be disappointed. There is some really good food here and the pharmacy most likely has anything you're looking for which was really interesting to see. Getting spayed with the mist from the blowhole is supposed to bring years of good luck, so stand close to the blowhole to guarantee good fortune :)
Los Ponchos is the best place to eat!.. Everything there is amazingly good at a great price
La Bufadora is a beautiful natural phenomenon and is worth the visit. That said, the sidewalk leading to the viewing area is lined with vendors selling all kings of merchandise from tourist trinkets to pharmaceuticals. The viewing platform can be very crowded so you may have to hang out for a few minutes to get that perfect view and pic. Tips: Parking is about $3 USD. Restrooms are about $0.50 USD. The drive from Ensenada is about 1 hour, but the last half is a beautiful drive through mountains and along the ocean.
I was expecting a bit more. They do have open air shops and restaurants but you have to pay for their only bathroom and bring your own tissue because she charges for that too. There is a little look out that sprays water that's kinda nice but again, not so much worth the drive in my opinion.
Back in the late 60's I belonged to a dive club that use to come here for a weekend of diving. There was only a few homes then. There was only one cafe and the owner lived in one house and his manger along with his family lived in another. If you came here you were a driver and nothing else. One Sunday there were many people who came here to see the blowhole and others set up shop you might say and sold items from food to other kinds of things to make a few bucks. About 4-5 pm the buses would pick up the people and take them back home. There was not to much to do except to buy some fire wood from the manger and set around the fire telling stories. I enjoyed this area because there was no traffic because there was only one road in. You just had to set back a look at the sunset into the ocean. We would go night diving and we seen things you would never see in the daytime. I and others went here for years , we stopped going because someone let the cat out of the bag and more and more Americans would come down here not to dive or have some peace and quite, but to party and drink all night long. They would bring there motorcycles and run them all over the place even in the camping areas. I believe I and most of the dive club members stopped coming here around 1973-74.
