On the south side of Bahia de Todos Santos less than 20 miles from Ensenada is Punta Banda, a spectacular mountainous peninsula that juts out into the Pacific a la northern California's Point Reyes. And on the Pacific-exposed far side lies the area's most famous attraction (well, its second most famous after the fish tacos).  La Bufadora (The Blowhole), is a V-shaped cliff that funnels Pacific swells inward with a violent force that sometimes creates enormous upward splashes.  It's an impressive enough site to make running the gauntlet of a long street of vendors selling cheap leather goods, t-shirts, and made-in-China trinkets to get to it well worthwhile.

I camped near the tip of Punta Banda on a family's land on a promontory high above the Pacific on what must be one of the most breathtaking campsites of my life.  Spectacumous!  Stupendulous!  Beautific!
