La Bufadora is a marine geyser, or Blowhole located on the Punta Banda Peninsula in Baja California, Mexico. The spout of marine water (occurring every minute or so to varying degrees of height) is created when ocean waves and air is drawn into an underwater cave located in the cliffside, and the trapped air and water then explode upwards.
