This place is about a 20-30min drive from Ensenada city center. We traveled by car and it was a nice view of the ocean. The place itself is nice thing to do in mexico while there. There is plenty of vendors before you get there where you can buy snacks or a Oxxo to get drinks or anything else you... More

We were on the Carnival Cruise Inspiration. We didn't want to pay for the expensive excursions, so we went for the rental car right off the ship. It was $50 for all day which included full coverage. We split the cost with another couple. We had GPS so it was easy to navigate our way to the sights. It takes... More

Most reviews will come from tourists coming off from tours of the Carnival Cruise and that is good, but as a Mexican, I urged Mexican federal authorities to clean the federal building restroom that is just a step away to La Bufadora natural attraction, they charge you 5 pesos or 50 cents of a dollar to get inside the restroom...

Los Gordos in La Bufadora is a great place to have Rattlesnake Tequila and also great food. You can't beat the view of the bay. Every time I come to the area, this is a must see!

I took a guided kayak tour to the La Bufadora blow hole. The guides did a great job of guiding us in to get an up close view of the blow hole. You can watch from above but this was a unique view. The guides all spoke good English and were concerned for our safety. If you have never been... More

This natural wonder has unnatural surroundings. There usually is a crush of people in the viewing area. But first and after you have to go through an open arcade of vendors hawking everything. So once was enough for me. I prefer my awesome nature in a more real, less populated environment.

If you are on a cruise to Ensenada you will see one of the excursions is to the famous blow hole called La Bufadora. The blow hole is located about an hour away from where the cruise ships dock. You can almost see to the area where it is located by scanning the shore line to the south as it... More

Coming to see the Bufadora there are many little places to buy things, I recommend the drink in the cocunuts they are delicious. They have some restarants that you see along the way that look scrumptious.

Half the fun of La Bufadora is getting there. The drive is very peaceful (except for when a bus driver roars around you) and the ocean so beautiful. Once you get there, there are many souvenir shops selling the same things but many also have some items and curios that are unique. What I do is walk down and visit... More
