A major seaport by all accounts, the port of Valparaíso continues to be a major distribution center for container traffic, copper, and fruit exports. Valparaíso also receives growing attention from cruise ships that visit during the South American summer.

In Rio, one takes pleasure to discover all of the delights of this magnificent city. A glass cable car ride takes the visitor to the top of this iconic Sugar Loaf Mountain, a symbol of the city. View from the top provides this stunning panorama of the city.

This page comprises 7 seven photos of La Bufadora site.For the viewer’s appreciation and to really understand the phenomenon, I positioned the pictures in a chronological order from the time the wave appears to finally touch the rock and create the geyser effect. The day I visited the site, the waves were not too strong. But, you’ll have the idea. It was out of this world. Enjoy
La Bufadora is a marine geyser or blowhole located on the Punta Banda Peninsula in Baja California, Mexico. The spout of sea water 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. The phenomena repeats every minute or so with its volume depending on the strength of the waves.
La Bufadora is one of the largest blowholes in North America, often shooting upwards more than 30 metres (100 ft) above sea level. The exhibit hall roof top is approximately 24 metres (80 ft) above sea level and the blowhole frequently sprays above it.
