Mexico, API Sonora- Port of Puerto Peñasco
Puerto Peñasco is located in the northwest of the state of Sonora about 100 km. from the Arizona border, on the small strip of land that joins the Peninsula of Baja California with the rest of Mexico. Puerto Peñasco is often called "Rocky Point" and has been nicknamed "Arizona´s beach" as it is the closest coast to the major cities of Phoenix and Tucson. In recent decades Puerto Peñasco has grown to become a preferred destination in the northwester corner of the country. It now offers a wide variety of hotels, resorts, golf courses, sea and land activities and ecotourism while maintaining its spirit as a traditional fishing village. As a homeport, it will offer an alternative drive-to homeport for the Southwest US with unique access to the Sea of Cortez.
