The blow hole is a rarity that is fun for all ages with its marine snorts – an incredible conjunction of compressed air, a network of coral tunnels, and a barrage of crystal waters that slide up to eight meters inside a hole, blowing ocean water as a powerful vertical jet. This is the Hoyo Soplador, a natural marvel that everyone should visit and enjoy.

Depending on the intensity of the waves that crash against the shore, the Hoyo Soplador can expulse columns of water that sprut from four to ten meters high. In the time between the intermittent waves that lash the coast, people take the oportunity to bathe in the water or take photos or video.
