Puerto Peñasco is a small city of approximately 42,000 population in the northern state of Sonora, Mexico. Located on the shore of the Gulf of California (also known as the Sea of Cortés), the town is known for its fishing and tourism industries.
Puerto Peñasco, alternatively known among many of its English-speaking visitors as "Rocky Point," is a popular destination for tourists, particularly those that reside in the U.S. state of Arizona, for whom it is the nearest beach resort. It is also a popular Spring Break destination with students from Arizona, New Mexico, and California. Puerto Peñasco is located in the 'free zone' where tourists are not required to obtain immigration papers in order to visit (however, U.S. border agents advise that as of January 2008 a passport will be required to re-enter the United States). Puerto Peñasco has two main beach areas. To the west of the Old Port area, there is a wide, flat area known as Sandy Beach. East of town, there is a long coast with several areas known in parts as La Mirador, Playa del Oro and then Las Conchas, an area of beachfront and near-beach condos, homes and timeshares.
The Old Port has a variety of shopping and dining, from roadside taco stands to restaurant-style dining, from an Italian bistro to rooftop seafood. There are stalls with souvenirs and traditional items -- many of which you can haggle for -- as well as artist shops.
There is a statue of Benito Juárez in a plaza near the beaches.
Puerto Peñasco is also slated for upcoming marina and other boat-related developments as part of the country's 'Escalera Nautica' efforts, which call for a chain of 'tourist-class' marinas sprinkled up and down the Baja coast in an effort to promote nautical tourism.
In 2006, then-president of Mexico Vicente Fox visited Puerto Peñasco and reiterated the government's support of the ongoing housing, airport, and other infrastructure-related federal funding in an effort to keep pace with the region's growing demands.
Although commonly known in English as "Rocky Point", this is not an accurate translation. In Spanish, "Puerto Peñasco" literally means"Rocky Port". Rocky Point in Spanish would more accurately be Punta Peñasco.
