La Bufadora

One of our favorite activities in Bahia Asuncion, our home for the month of March, has been watching gray whales from our porch. We could spend hours staring out over the ocean looking for the tell-tale spray as the whales surface to breath. However, we have been equally charmed by the town’s permanent blowhole, La Bufadora. In our travels we have visited many coastal “blowholes”, but the one in Bahia Asuncion is the most impressive so far. True to its name, it is a genuine blowhole; the water rushes under a rocky outcropping and shoots out a small hole on top as the pressure builds. We very much enjoyed climbing the rocks around and above La Bufadora, where we could watch (and feel) the spray from every conceivable angle. We’re glad we wore our rain coats!
