Ajo, Arizona has been a popular stop-over for Rocky Point visitors for many decades. Some stop in Ajo to purchase gas, Mexico driving insurance or refreshments. Ajo has been a small town half way between Phoenix and Rocky Point, for more than 100 years. In the very early 1900s until 1983, Phelps Dodge operated a lucrative copper mine and also mined gold and other minerals. Mining is still going on in Ajo, under the guise of “Minerals Recovery”, in Ajo.
The former mine is now a historical site, located close to the charming Ajo Museum, a former mission. Hikes and desert outings are free, and many Ajoites and winter visitors consider fun in the surrounding desert their favorite pastime.
The local medical clinic has one medical doctor, two PAs as well as nurses and other professionals.
