This is about a 40 minute ride from downtown. It’s a must see if you are in the area, but keep your expectations in check. If the tide and wave action is high, you will get a memorable sight. The waves crash into the coast,...More
That part we most disliked was walking through the long gauntlet of shops and getting yelled at from both sides to come look at their goods. Many were too aggressive of sales people for my taste. If this atmosphere bothers you, I suggest you stay...More
The trip out there from town is kind of a schlep. On the day we went, the ocean was very calm and the bufadora wasn't boofing at all.
The zillions of curio vendors are fun, and the thrill of getting to pay $.75 Americano to...More
The drive from the main road to the beach is not long--about 3k--but it is pretty rugged. We had a 4-wheel drive vehicle, but the other folks who we met there had a regular car, so 4-wheel drive is not necessary. It was fun to...More
Overall our trip to La Buffardo was worth while. There was some major disappointments. I understand that it's Mexico and there are some basic luxuries that are absent but it kind of was ridiculous. We came from a cruise ship I would not recommend booking...More
What an amazing experience! Benjie, our tour guide was quite informative with a great sense of humor. We learned that there are only 3 Blowholes of this magnitude in the world, La Bufadora in Mexico, Australia & Hawaii.

We took a bus tour from Ensenada and I think it took about 40 minutes. The tour guide gave us some history during the ride there. Once at La Bufadora, she gave us tips as to where to buy, where the best food was, and then set us free to Rome around. Get a bbq clam.
No you can't. La Bufadora is 45 minutes on the scenic route in 25 minutes on the non scenic route. Tell your taxi hire that you want the non scenic route if you're trying to get there quicker. However your driver has so much... More
No you can't. La Bufadora is 45 minutes on the scenic route in 25 minutes on the non scenic route. Tell your taxi hire that you want the non scenic route if you're trying to get there quicker. However your driver has so much knowledge that it is beautiful to take a ride throughout the city.
When you exit the ship there will be a shuttle there to charge you $8 per person round trip but here's the catch. If you are healthy to walk at least three blocks when you get to the end of the port there are taxis and private cars that you can hire for 30 to $45 for the entire day. This is what you can get for $45 Scenic travel to La Bufadora with wait time including horseback riding on the beach with wait time and a drop off back to the ship or downtown Ensenada. I have been there several times my daily trips range between 4 to 6 hours,
The shuttle is a money catch for tourists. They drive you a mile around away from the ship throughout Ensenada downtown and onto their own tour company establishment. The tour establishment doubles to triples the prices of your tour in which you can hire a taxi for the entire day for $45 up to four people in your party. Downtown Ensenada is about a quarter-mile to a half a mile from the port. There are many shops vendors and restaurants that you can explore so the walk does not seem that long.
Also the port is beautiful to take pictures in front of the ship and the Ensenada Landmark name.
