Puerto Penasco, Sonora

Puerto Peñasco is a small city in the state of Sonora, northern Mexico, next to the Sea of Cortes. This town is known for its fishing and tourism industries.

Puerto Peñasco, known commonly in English as Rocky Point is visited by many tourists (particularly those that reside in Arizona) every year. It has a small airport that, although open to the general public, does not have the capability to allow airliners to land. Because of this people who have to fly to vacation in Puerto Peñasco must often fly either to nearby Hermosillo, Guaymas or Mexicali.

Puerto Peñasco has a large beach line, and there is a statue of Benito Juarez in a plaza located near the beaches.
