This was a fascinating natural attraction. The market was amazing on the way down to the Bufadora. A million vendors. I think you could get drunk off samples. Every flavor of churro you could ask for, restaurants, and at the end they have a good...More

We took this tour to the blow hole after our stop at Pai Pai Zoo. The tour company was awesome but these particular stops were rather boring. The blowhole is very anti climatic and featured more shopping then it did attractions. Can't say I would...More

The sea was calm on the day we visited so the blowhole was not that spectacular. Leading up to the La Bufadora the street is lined with souvenir sellers, pharmacies and jewellery stores all offering big discounts!!! There is a lot of good natured selling/bartering...More

This place was beautiful. Wasn’t too crowded when I went. The shops are a bit pricier but it’s expected.

There are only 3 or 4 places in the world where the water shoots up like this. It was worth going through the line of vendors trying to get you to buy something. Just ignore them or say no thank you and move.

I liked it but It’s a one and done. I don’t have to go back. The shopping and haggling where more fun!

Pleasant stop on our tour. The shops leading up to the blow hole are fascinating, but lots of junk. Vendors were friendly, but a bit persistent.

We went to see this amazing natural wonder and left very unimpressed. After running a 1/2 mile sales gauntlet of relentless sales we watched an ocean sneeze that made us snore. Not worth the cost.

You would have to look out for the restaurants and bars to sit for a bit. There are no "park" benches until you get to the end by the blow hole. There you can find steps and ledges to sit down on. If they have the walkers... More
