Destination Overview

Puerto Penasco, Mexico Travel

Primed for tourism development since the late 1990s, Puerto Penasco has evolved into a budding beachside destination in the heart of the Sonoran Desert. Built on the northern boundary of the Sea of Cortez, the resort town is also known to many as Rocky Point. Just 100 kilometers from the United States' border with Mexico, the area has earned an affectionate reputation as "Arizona's Beach" due to its accessibility to those living in the Southwest.
