Know what Puerto Peñasco is doing to give you a safe stay
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.
