“Crowded”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The blowhole was pretty mild during the time of day we went. Great prices at the market if you can handle the crowds and slightly aggressive sales people. Got some good deals at the pharmacy.

“It's okay”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

You park, then walk through one corridor of a trinket market with aggressive vendors....like every tourist trap in Mexico. I did like the restaurants and food vendors...delicious. At the end of it is La Bufadora. You can only see it if you look down over a crowded wall. It's not a big blow hole. The view of the bay is lovely.

“La Bufadora is impressive”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Come to visit this site during high tide only. Around 7pm is the best time of the day. It is a wonderful site to see. A pride of Mexico.

“No internet access”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

The aisle to my room smells smokey and there has not any internet access. It is very contradictory to the promotion of the hotel which says high speed internet access. I will never stay at this hotel again even if I get 50% discount of what I pay (around USD100) for a family room (one double bed plus one single bed). My wife got sick when we check out of the hotel. One more thing, no breakfast is provided by the hotel.

“Worth the Trip”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We took a Carnival Cruise to Ensenada and had no interest in any of the excursions however there was a shuttle off the cruise that offered transportation to the blowhole for $15. Worth every penny. Had no expectations and was pleasantly surprised. La Bufadora is 1 of 3 blowholes in the whole world. The flea market was fun to walk through however be prepared to be bombarded by the shop owners. Very cool experience.
