What to expect
  • After midmorning pickup, travel with your guide about 24 miles (39 km) south of Ensenada to the Punta Banda Peninsula. En route, enjoy the passing landscapes of mountains and the Pacific Ocean.   Arrive at La Bufadora, the largest sea geyser in North America. Hear from your guide about how air, trapped in a sea cave, causes water to explode upward, often shooting more than 100 feet (31 meters) above sea level, creating a thunderous noise. Depending on the strength of the waves, this phenomenon repeats about every minute, so you are sure to see La Bufadora in action.   Then, your guide takes you to a popular sidewalk market of handicrafts and souvenirs made in Baja California. Find fun home décor items and gifts here, and then relax with food and drinks at one of the nearby restaurants (own expense) offering stunning views of the ocean.   Your 4-hour tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.   Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

Our guide Eugenia was great. She was so friendly, well-informed, and made the experience perfect. She made sure we got there before the crowds came, gave suggestions for the best places to eat, and the most "authentic" souvenir places. I would recommend this tour to everyone!

Our first of three visits introduced us to the La Bufadora. The rock formation is unique - so, when a wave comes in and crashes, the blow hole triggers - locals say that getting sprayed is good luck. The shops you pass on the way down have really agressive, but friendly vendors asking you to stop in their shop.
Trust me when I say, go get two tacos from Lydia's ($2 for fish or steak), right next to where the shuttles park. Using the bathroom there will cost $0.50 per person so bring a few one's.
Don't pay $30 for a pinapple colada - tell them "El Magnifico" said they are only $10, WITH a free refill on the way back. Slip him another $1 and tell them to make it "strong"

Princess Ship tour Good. $ 50 each Guide very good. worth the price. The walk of the tourist trap shops was surprisingly fun. Bought big brimmed hats. probably made in China. Surprised by City Hall Tour at the end It is the Old Casino VERY INTERESTING building and Free sample of Margarita or Cerveza a happy surprise. Very Glad we took the tour

We arrived on a Carnival Cruise ship and booked this trip directly with Eugenia beforehand. Jorge picked us up near the dock and was waiting for us with a clear sign with our name on it. We had a quick two-minute walk to a very nice and very clean, new minivan which sat the 5 of us very comfortably. Jorge was extremely professional and yet personal. La Bufadora was about an hour's drive from the cruise ship and we felt extremely comfortable with Jorge. He gave us a great recommendation for lunch and we felt very confident knowing he had local experience in the marketplace at La Bufadora. The trip was absolutely perfect. Highly recommend!

Juan, our tour guide was great! He picked us up from our hotel in his car and offered us water and some snacks. As we were in the road to the bufadora, he showed us around and was pointing out some spots that he recommends us visiting. Once we got to la bufadora, he made recommendations where to eat and told us that he would give us time alone but that he would be around if we have any questions. He also took pictures of us and later sent them to me. It wasn't as crowded when we came (10:20am) but it got really crowded after 1pm. Definitely come early.
Overall our tour guide was just great! I would definitely book this activity again.
