Added Info

In 1826, an adventurous British sailor looking for wealth - pearls, gold, whatever - was checking out the northern end of the Gulf of California. He gave the name Rocky Point to a rocky lava outcropping along the desert coast.

Later, the location was named in Spanish "Puerto Punta Peñasco," or Port Rocky Point. Now, known as the popular beach destination for beachgoers from Arizona, Puerto Peñasco has grown from a small fishing village to a large tourist destination.

Less than 80 miles from the US border, it is an easy drive for residents of Arizona. The Mexican government has given it the status of a free zone, so visitors do not need a passport to come to this area.

With beaches that stretch for hundreds of miles each direction, Puerto Peñasco is also known for its good fishing.
