Every time we go to Mexico, we always visit Ensenada, Baja California. You’ve probably been there from a cruise that you’ve been on, or maybe from when you pass through when you go to the beaches in Baja California. One of our favorite spots is always visiting la Bufadora,or the Blowhole.
The Pacific water is never warm, so when you get splashed, you’re freezing. Although, you do feel freshened up on those hot, humid summer days. We have gone a couple of times where the blowhole isn’t it’s usual self and there isn’t any water being sprayed. So if you do end up going, the blowhole might not be the way it is in the picture. It just depends on the day.
Usually, after we get soaked, we go change. Keep in mind that in certain parts of Mexico, you have to pay in order to use the restrooms. There is a person, usually, in the front giving toilet paper once you pay 5 pesos. On one of our trips, we asked to use the restroom to change from our soaked to dry clothing, and the person said we had to pay! So we ended up changing in the car. The money adds up.
There are many shops where you can buy souvenirs all around. And lots of different photo opportunities. Sometimes there are lion cubs where you can take pictures with them, or men dressed as Aztec warriors. You take your pick…
