Things to Do in Puerto Penasco

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.
