The best way to get there is on a motorbike or small cars, rent only for 3 hours and you can go around san andres

The locals made this blow hole into a tourist spot. Lots of shops selling souvenirs. The coral rock is natural. The blow hole is connected from the ocean. This only happens if the ocean is not calm and lots of waves. Be prepared to be fascinated of the ocean view. Good walking shoes are recommended.

An interesting natural feature, more intense with southerly winds and waves. Be mindful of locals trying to charge entry and sell overpriced drinks. Access to the hole is absolutely free

It was ok, but I was waiting for something beautiful , because I saw spectacular photos but it didn't reach my spectatives, but it was ok, they don't "charge you" but you have to buy something in there.

Nothing to say. It's a natural phenomena seen in many places close to shore. Not impressive. It's just a turist trap were locals try to sell you souvenirs and drinks.

It's a little hole which spits water from time to time. If you enter there, the rude people who own a bar next to it basically force you to purchase a cocktail which costs at least 13.000 Pesos, if not they don't stop following you and telling you that you have to buy something to see the place.

There is not much to see there. Is not really worth going. Sometimes it blows hard and sometimes it doesn't. Overall is not that interesting.

There is nothing interesting about this place, it is a hole and lots of people trying to get the perfect picture with the wind blowing. A waste of time.
