La Bufadora

The blowhole is the result of air trapped in a sea cave exploding upwards.  Air is forced into the cave by wave action and is released when the water recedes.  This interaction not only creates the spout, but a thunderous noise as well.  La Bufadora is one of the largest blowholes in North America, often shooting upwards of 100 feet.
La Bufadora, pictured in the mountain behind me is a fifteen minute drive from our house.
Lots of vendors before you get to the blowhole.  Not many buyers early in the morning. 
Water entering cave.
Water starting to expel.  Somebody lost their hat.
Plenty of restaurants.
Community of La Bufadora. 
We live on a six mile stretch of beach, used mostly by Mexicans.  Water temperature is nice this time of year.
People camp on the beach and never have problems.  We have walked the beach many times after dark. 
We are starting to paint and fix-up the house.
For some reason, Maya is pooped out.
