“I’m honored to lead the OCV in building on our recent successes in welcoming visitors back to Puerto Peñasco after the coronavirus pandemic,” said Erika Curiel. “I’m especially excited that we won’t be working alone simply as OCV, as we will have the privilege to work hand-in-hand with the Sonora Secretary of Tourism with the same purpose to keep promoting Puerto Peñasco as the top tourist destination in Sonora.”
