The Basics

La Bufadora blowhole is a common half-day excursion for travelers and cruise ship passengers in nearby Ensenada, although many tours combine a stop at the geyser with the opportunity to take a canopy tour in Las Cañadas or Pai Pai Ecotourism Park. Whatever your schedule or interests, with options that build in time for horseback riding, browsing the flea markets, or taking part in a tequila tasting alongside visiting La Bufadora, there’s a private or shared excursion to suit most.

La Bufadora and so much more!
We had a great time! Adrien was at the pick-up location when we got there. We had a great conversation on the way to La Bufadora. He was great in helping us navigate the shopping stalls on the way to/from La Bufadora. We asked about tacos and he took us to his favorite local spot. They were amazing. We asked about Margaritas and he took us to the birthplace of the drink in town. Will be doing the wine tour the next time we're there!

Bufadora / La guerrerense seafood / four four vineyards
Jesus was our driver. He was very friendly and accommodating. The drive to la bufadora was longer than expected, 2.5 hours, but it was worth it. The shops were so much fun and the foooood was so yummy! The mezcal tasting was also very nice at the end. He picked us up and dropped us off at the border so it was very convenient. Would definitely recommend.

La Bufadora Tour in Baja California
Our guide, Adrian, met us at a hotel close to the cruise ship and drove us to Ensenada. He is originally from Ensenada and is fluent in English and Spanish so he was able to tell us all about the area and help us negotiate in the marketplace after we viewed the blowhole. It was a quick trip with beautiful views of the ocean and mountains, and we were back to the ship with plenty of time to board.

Bufadora / La guerrerense seafood / four four vineyards
First off, I have to admit I was a little timid on purchasing this tour because there weren’t any preview reviews, However Im glad we ended up purchasing the tour. This is basically a package where you have your personal Uber/Taxi to drive you from point A-D. It’s very convenient to just deal with ONE tour guy to be driving/showing you around, giving you directions on where you’ll find the BEST tacos (of course you have to ask) We booked 2 tours for this one our drivers name was José Antonio he was very professional, humble & a gentlemen at all times. We felt super comfortable with him. Be sure to tip your driver.

Eugenia was an amazing tour guide from start to finish! Her knowledge and humor made the trip a memorable one! It felt like we were traveling with another family member. The tour itself was an easy drive from Ensenada to the La Bufadora. The views were amazing and the food options were plentiful! We got to also spend some time with a black jaguar, bengal tiger, and lion (cubs, of course). We paid about $80 USD for me, my husband, and 2 kids (10 & 15) and they absolutely loved it!

Eugenia offers what no one else can...her engaging personality. We felt like she tailored our tour exclusively to us. She ensured that our mother with her wheelchair was accommodated, & the entire your was accessable. On a scale of 1-10 she gets a 60!! (since there were 6 of us)

I had fun on my trip. Our tour guide,Jorge, was very pleasant and helpful. I had a little trouble finding the pick up spot for the trip. A map of it on the website would be helpful. Overall though, it was an enjoyable experience.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Take plenty of cash to buy souvenirs, snacks, and access the public bathrooms.

  • Access to La Bufadora itself is free.

  • There are several restaurants in and around La Bufadora site.

  • The blowhole "erupts" every few minutes, but you might need to be patient to catch a really spectacular jet of water; high tide is the best time to visit.

  • Some of the path down to La Bufadora is wheelchair and stroller accessible, although quite steep in parts.

How to Get There

La Bufadora is situated 23 miles (38 kilometers) south of Ensenada, on the Punta Banda peninsula. There’s plenty of on-site parking and the winding drive down to the blowhole is as picturesque as La Bufadora itself. To save the hassle of renting a car, you can also visit during a guided excursion which includes stops at nearby attractions, such as Las Cañadas or Pai Pai.

Show all

When to Get There

La Bufadora is a popular year-round attraction and is accessible daily. Weekends and national holidays are typically the busiest times to visit, so go midweek if you want to skip the largest crowds or stop by early in the morning to enjoy the place to yourself. However, to witness the biggest "eruptions," time your visit with high tide.

What to Do in Ensenada

La Bufadora is one of the best natural attractions in Ensenada but there’s much more to the area. Grab a drink at Baja California’s oldest cantina, Hussongs, take a stroll along the malecón (boardwalk) at sunset, or venture into the nearby Valle de Guadalupe wine region to sample some of the best Mexican wines.
