Ensenada Blowhole Walking Tour Excursion Reviews
We had never been to Ensenada and didn't know what we would do when we got off the ship. We jumped on a shuttle to cruise into town and the shuttle operator offered us a trip to La Bufadora for a discounted price--we jumped on it! When we were dropped off in town, we paid for our excursion and boarded another bus. Our tour guide was amazing! He gave us little tidbits of history of the area and made the 30 minute drive pass by quickly! The drive had beautiful ocean views once we got out of town. Once we were parked at the market place, he walked us down and pointed out merchants we may be interested in checking out (I am sure that he gets some sort of kick back for purchases made but tourists) and suggested we try the margaritas and the tacos at the little stand near the parking area where our bus was parked. His recommendations did not disappoint! We had a great time walking down and taking photos of the blow hole (even though the ocean was pretty calm so the blow hole wasn't really at it's best). Walking back we were harassed a bit by the merchants we walked by, but, that is expected and you just keep on walking.
Don't bother unless you want to purchase prescription drugs (they really are cheap), leather or silver.
Nice trip. Lots of shopping
Do the Misión Tourism one (or some name like that). They have smaller buses - they'll tell you about it when they shuttle you in. It's a fantastic drive, the shops are fun, the tour guide was fantastic, the blow hole was cool, and it was only $15. Book off the ship for sure! You save over 50% doing it this way! Get a fresh churro and a few fish tacos before you head back to the ship - so yummy.
Our family of 6 took a comfortable bus tour to La Bufadora. Our tour guide Melanie was excellent, informative and attentive which we all appreciated very much. The blowhole has a small lane of stalls selling a wide range of things, that is very accurate and we could've skipped all other shopping stops in order to get everything at La Bufadora and at better prices too.
