Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Puerto Penasco, Mexico your home away from home

Puerto Penasco is right at the top of the Baja California Peninsula and is part of the Sonora Desert. Newly developed as a centre for tourism, it is popular with Americans as it is the nearest beach to Phoenix and Tucson in Arizona.

Things to Do in Puerto Penasco

Puerto Penasco means “Rocky Port” and was little more than a fishing port until the 1990s. The beaches are the main attraction, such as Playa Bonita which is famous for its light brown sand. Swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, windsurfing, jet skiing, kayaking and other watersports are all available along the waterfront. There are many tidal rock pools at low tide and where crabs, starfish and other marine creatures can be seen. Fishing is popular in the area. Join a fishing charter and go sport fishing or take a scenic cruise in the protected waters. Many visitors stay in Puerto Penasco holiday villas during the annual fishing festival in June. It features mariachi musicians, folk dancing and the crowning of a festival queen.
