“Beautiful setting, warm and interesting host made our long day traveling up the Baja a great respite!”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We've traveled all over Baja in the past 30 years and were delighted to find this unique, off the beaten path spot. Shari was delightful and helpful - and her crab omelette delicious! Her story and experience of years in Baja kept us entertained and informed. The patio above the cove was a perfect spot to unwind as we watched the tide roll in, and listening to the waves helped us sleep like babies in the rock room. It was a bit of a drive (@ 50 km) down a good, straight ,
paved road - but that's what we love about Baja - finding these unexpected places of simplicity and beauty!

“The rock rooms are da bomb!”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Shari and Juan let me and my wife stay in one of their "rock" rooms for two nights during Hurricane Norbert. We have a 5th wheel trailer on the beach in Bahia Asuncion, but the military had told us to evacuate our side of town as there was more potential for flooding. The rock rooms made us feel very safe from the force of the hurricane. They are clean, quiet and have a wonderful view. I would highly recommend staying at the La Bufadora Inn when you travel to Baja California Sur.

Shari and Juan are great people. We stayed in the Dolphin room and Shari walked us through everything and was always around to help. There is great fishing and a view of a life time for every one.

“Our 4th wonderful vacation with Bahia Asuncion La Bufadora Inn”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My husband loves the fishing in Bahia Asuncion, so we've made annual trips there since we've retired. We always stay with Shari Bondy at La Bufadora Inn and have tried the Sunset Casita and the Abalone Suite. My husband really enjoys his fishing trips with Shari's husband Juan & always comes back with a good catch, especially the calico bass (his favorite). We've had numerous side trips that Shari has recommended and each one was a true Baja adventure: fossil hunting, pitaya harvesting, Revolution Day celebration, and lobster dinners delivered to our room. We've visited the neighboring fishing villages too & love all the locals we've met. It's a safe & relaxing experience for those who love quaint & smaller towns.

“You can't beat the view”
Reviewed 13 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed in the upstairs suite. It was clean and very comfortable. The view was fabulous. Shari had excellent restaurant recommendations and arranged for a lobster dinner to be delivered one night that was fantastic. We had friends staying in the Rock Room and took advantage of their great patio for dinner when ours was too windy. You can't beat the sunset view from the balcony though!
Can't wait to go back!

“Comfortable, friendly, scenic spot near the best fishing in Baja.”
Reviewed 12 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed in the rock room for four nights,and found it charming. It is a bit rustic, but very comfortable. It is like staying at a good friend's funky beach house. Juan and Shari are wonderful hosts and we are already planning a return trip. The offshore fishing is phenomenal and the beaches, especially San Roque are breathtaking..

“Loved it and I will be back!!”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I have been returning to the La Bufadora Inn at Bahia Asuncion for relaxing and fishing for the last few years.

Shari is always cheerful and ready to help with any adventure that you have planned. Shari knows all the local restaurants of which there are plenty.

The accommodations are first class with beautiful views and comfortable furniture and coffee makers, microwaves and so on.

Fishing with Juan or one of his captains is also what I come for and I am never disappointed with the results. Always a fun and pleasurable experience.
