Dear Arizona

Sometimes you just need a break in a beautiful place... Like Rocky Point
Just another awesome Monday at the beach!
When the beach calls you must answer, it isn't very polite to make it wait.

It's about time to plan that beach getaway
Plan your vacation in Puerto Peñasco and rock your way to a wonderful Summer!

Visit the Schuk Toak Visitors Center and immerse yourself in the rich history of the Pinacate Biosphere and Grand Desert of Altar Reserve. In addition, you will discover why this area has been deemed a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site.

The Schuk Toak Visitors Center, meaning “Sacred Mountain” in the Tohono O’odham dialect, is the only public building in Mexico that is fully self-sufficient, with 1,300 meters of construction and over 30,000 meters of desert botanical garden.
Schuk Toak is located and built upon the most extensive and most recent lava flow in the area (from approximately 12,000 years ago). From here you can also embark on a hike to the sand dunes of the Grand Desert of Altar and admire the beauty of the desert´s active dunes, which are the largest in North America.

The Pinacate Biosphere Reserve and Grand Desert of Altar is a unique destination in Mexico, and the world, and the Visitors Center is the gateway to its secrets. It is a true marvel both of nature and human ingenuity, and an example of how one may live in harmony and be eco-friendly without giving up comfort.

The Schuk Toak Visitors Center of the Pinacate Biosphere Reserve is located west of the turn-off at Km 72 along the Peñasco – Sonoyta highway and is open daily.
Puerto Peñasco doesn't just stay in your heart, it stays on your mind
Sometimes just feeling the sand between your toes is all the motivation you need
A mother is your first friend, your best friend, your forever friend.
Happy Mother's Day!!


El Pinacate

El Pinacate and Gran Desierto de Altar are known for their unique physical and biological characteristics, by the presence of a volcano shield, and by the extensive areas of active dunes that surround them.  They have the greatest concentration of Maar craters. The Pinacate mountain range has orogenic features of high interest for its abrupt formation of volcanic eruptions, that accumulated lava in compacted rocks, sand and volcanic ashes which then formed colors of spectacular beauty and the craters: El Elegante, Cerro Colorado, MacDougal and Sykes.


Isla San Jorge

Isla San Jorge aka “Bird Island” is an important biological sanctuary for a large variety of creatures including birds, mammals and sea life. It is classified as a federal zone, much like many of the islands in the gulf.


In 1978, it was deemed a Federal Area of Shelter for migratory birds and wild fauna. There are several boats that make day trips out to Bird Island from the Rocky Point Marina.
