Arizona has long been heralded the epitome of Southwest appeal in America. From the Grand Canyon National Park and Native American trading posts sprawled throughout the state to Mexican influence on its city culture and tradition, the land has thrived in its desert landscape with rivers and lakes nurturing the surrounding environment. The only missing aspect of Arizona’s location is the easy access to the ocean. Not any longer. Enter Puerto Penasco. A quaint fishing village known to many as Rocky Point, Puerto Penasco is settled only a mere three and half hour drive from Phoenix and is opening its arms to welcome guests from all parts of Arizona.
The seaside town along the edge of the Sea of Cortes is Mexico boasts luxury accommodations, silky sand beaches, and fine dining that fuses both Mexican flavors with American influences. Puerto Penasco offers a handful of hotels and resorts to choose from, including Penasco Del Sol and Playa Bonita, which offer their own on-site restaurant for guests and visitors. Las Palomas Beach and Golf Resort weaves together the luxury of a cross-cultural vacation with the comfort of some required favorites like a round of golf, a private beach and a pool slide exclusively for Las Palomas guests. Las Palomas also hosts four deliciously acclaimed (and AAA four-diamond rated) restaurants on site.
If you never want to spend a moment away from the sea, consider The Sonoran Sea, Sonoran Spa, and the Sonoran Sky resort, nestled against the shores of their own beaches in their guest condos. Want to take a permanent vacation? Tessoro at Las Conchas offers unmatched full-ownership beachfront condos set on a prestine peninsula. The architecture of Tessoro stands out as a true work of art—even receiving prestigious International Property Awards in the Best Development and Best Interior Design categories. The community is environmentally conscious while only being 12 minutes from town.
Whether you choose a quick getaway with your girls or a family spring break with the extended relatives, Puerto Penasco prides itself on being an extension of the great scenic destination of Arizona, making it easy and affordable for Valley dwellers and visitors alike to enjoy a new culture and setting with some cushion to splurge.
