The Blowhole in Baja

By Linda Tancs

Seventeen miles south of Ensenada, Mexico, is the second largest marine geyser in the world, La Bufadora. Spouting 60 feet into the air, the spectacle is caused by the pressure created when ocean waves are forced into a partially submerged sea cavern. Just as wonderful as the overwater view is the underwater view, diving being hailed as a real treat in this area with an abundance of sea life and visibility up to 80 feet. To get there, head south out of Ensenada until you reach Maneadero. There are clearly marked signs for the exit to La Bufadora.
