Places and Activities for Tourists
This natural wonder is one of the most visited places in Mexico. As a marine geyser (also called as blowhole), it spurts water as high as 80 feet above sea level when the ocean waves are pushed upward by the air coming from an underwater cave which is located in the Cliffside. When the water shoots upward, it also creates a thunderous noise.

The beach offers fine sand, pristine water, and scenic views—a combination that is perfect for a relaxing summer getaway.
