The Large Blow Hole at La Bufadora in Mexico

At the end of my Ensenada excursion haggling at La Bufadora flea market, there was another new adventure waiting. Mexico was home to the second largest blow hole in the world and we were going to see it spout off. I was excited even though I had no idea what a blow hole was. But, shooting water has to be cool…right?

Shopping + Blow Hole = Fun

In the simplest terms, a blow hole happens when a sea cave forms under water and waves are forced through it. It didn’t take long to see the spectacular blow hole strut its stuff. La Bufadora went off a couple times a minute during our short visit.

Though the size of the geyser varies greatly, it often shoots upwards more than 100 feet. My biggest regret is that we didn’t opt for kayak excursion where you can get up close and personal to the gushing agua.

We all walked away, towards the bus, pondering the show we had just seen. Until…the next show started. Seagulls vs. Squirrels. They were battling it out for the food being thrown to them by the tourists (not myself). The competition was fierce, but in the end the Seagulls were victorious almost every time.
