CITY GUIDE

PUERTO PENASCO, MEXICO

Puerto Penasco is located in the state of Sonora in northwestern Mexico. Situated about 60 miles from the United States border, Puerto Penasco is the closest spot for Arizona residents to find a major beach which is why the city is nicknamed “Arizona’s Beach”. Puerto Penasco is also known as Rocky Point. The city is quite large at nearly 3,800 square miles in size although the population remains comparatively small at just under 60,000 residents.

Tourism is a major money-spinner in Puerto Penasco, most importantly the recreational fishing industry. Until the early-1990s, Puerto Penasco was only known for its fishing and camping. As the area became overfished, an alternative industry needed to be found. Inspired by Cancun, Puerto Penasco began to establish itself as a tourist destination by developing hotels, condos, and other amenities to entice foreigners and Mexicans. There are now over 40 hotels and motels in Puerto Penasco. Major colleges in Puerto Penasco include the Instituto Tecnológico Superior de Puerto Penasco (Technological University of Puerto Penasco) as well as a campus for Universidad de Sonora.

Until the 1920’s, Puerto Penasco was nothing more than a small fishing village. Even then, the development was very minimal leaving almost the entire coast free of any residential or commercial development of any kind. In the 1990s, the Mexican government designated some of Puerto Penasco to be used for tourism. There are dozens of hotels now along with restaurant and shops. Condos, at one point, were owned 99% by Americans but after the Great Recession, the number of vacancies increased considerably.

The area of Puerto Penasco is part of the Altar Desert, which is part of the larger Sonora Desert, and is considered the driest and hottest part of the region. Puerto Penasco has an extremely dry climate with summer high temperatures averaging in the 90s. In the winter months of December, January and February, average low temperatures are in the mid-40s. Rain is scarce in Puerto Penasco with the average rainfall under 4 inches.

Real estate is geared toward those looking for a second home or relocating. Puerto Penasco boasts being close to the United States border and offering an ideal location for a vacation property on the water; marketing efforts are often geared toward Arizona residents. There are homes and condos that are very affordable and newly developed neighborhoods are starting to pop up.

Puerto Penasco is an ideal vacation location for foreigners, especially those from Arizona and California. Modern beachfront properties and a friendly population make Puerto Penasco an enticing place to live. It is very common to hear English spoken by the staff almost anywhere, including golf courses, restaurants and retail shops. As a growing tourist destination, Puerto Penasco is becoming a hotspot for both vacationers and residents in Mexico.
