Owner description: Roughly translated as "the snorter," this underwater cave regularly sucks in sea water and spits it out the cave's top drenching visitors to the site.

The blow hole is pretty awesome! It can catch you off guard if you're not careful. There are lots of vendors and shops around if you are interested in shopping or eating as well!

It's not the prettiest thing you'll encounter and they hype it a bit, however they it's worth doing at least once in your lifetime. There are vendors and they aren't as cheap as one would hope for however they have these guys that do paint plates and they do an amazing job and they are only $8 or $5 bucks depending on the size you get.
The candy stands are great, the pastries are good and the fresh fruit is amazing. Get some souvenirs while you're there and see the blow hole.

It does take about 45min ride from the downtown area where the cruise shuttle drops you off at. It costs about $15 per person but it's ok.

Get the pomegranate it's AMAZING IN MEXICO.

If you're afraid of people then this is not the place for you but if you're not afraid of people asking for a sale then you will be great.

The views travelling to La Bufadora was amazing. The blow hole was awesome. Remember when parking, it is $2.00 american and not pesos.
Beware of walking down to the blow hole as tremendous amount of TJ type vendors.

Very pushy vendors that you must walk through to see La Bufadora. Would have been extremely disappointed to pay a tour price for this visit. Took a van taxi for $15/person. Long drive and very bumpy due to construction. La Bufadora interesting, but not worth the hype. My husband is very uncomfortable with the vendors constantly approaching and touching him, however felt safe overall. Able to get a few souvenirs, just be ready to haggle!
