Your guide to Puerto Peñasco
All about Puerto Peñasco
Folks from across the U.S. border often refer to Puerto Peñasco as “Rocky Point” or even “Arizona’s Beach.” Whatever you’d like to call this desert enclave on the Sea of Cortez, its six beaches, rocky tide pools, and blazing Sonoran sun have made it one of northern Mexico’s fastest-growing beachfront getaways. Water adventures like kayaking, fishing, and snorkeling are particularly desirable in the gulf, which has been dubbed “the Aquarium of the World.” Meanwhile, just beside the sea the historic corridor of El Malecón beckons with seafood joints, street vendors, and lively nightlife. The perfect day here concludes with a stroll on the boardwalk, a piña colada in hand.
The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Puerto Peñasco
This is the Sonoran desert, and as you might imagine, the weather remains dry and clear for most of the year. Hot summers can be an exception to this and are sometimes muggy with occasional rain, while winters are dry and relatively cold, though the temperature rarely drops below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Visitors tend to prefer arriving in May, June, September, and October, when air and water temperatures are ideal for swimming. Be sure to pack a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a bathing suit.
Top things to do in Puerto Peñasco
Whether it’s sugar-fine sands or rugged seascapes you’re after, Puerto Peñasco has a beach for you. Sandy Beach (Playa Arenosa) is most popular with families, snorkelers, and divers, while nearby Playa Bonita conveniently offers umbrellas, drinks, and food.

El Pinacate y Gran Desierto de Altar
A UNESCO World Heritage site filled with ancient volcanoes, petrified lava flows, magnificent craters, and undulating sand dunes, this is one of the driest places on Earth. Frankly it feels more like the moon, which is probably why astronauts used it in the 1960s to prepare for landing there. Wild inhabitants include pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, and pumas.
