Spouting Blowhole at Punta Suárez on Española Island in Galápagos, EC

When you arrive, you will notice a lava field slick with water plus puddles trapped in the crevices. Wait for it. Watch with anticipation as a large wave rolls toward shore. A loud whoosh precedes a fountain blasting through a hole in an old lava tube. The torrent can reach 75 feet before collapsing into ocean spray. Locals call this spectacular display El Soplador. In English, this means “the blower.”
