In the early days, Puerto Peñasco was born out of necessity as a fishing village because fishermen would settle along the coast taking advantage of the abundant marine life here. I am told it was a simple, unassuming existence and the only signs of progress were the occasional visitors who would arrive by boat since there were no roads.

The tide, no pun intended, began to shift in Puerto Peñasco’ s favor during the 1990s, when the Mexican government launched a concerted effort to promote tourism in the region. This strategic move marked a turning point in the town’s history, cementing its transformation from a humble fishing village to a thriving tourist destination as we know it today.

With the influx of tourists came the surge in investment, as entrepreneurs and developers seized on opportunities to build luxury resorts, golf courses, and other attractions. This, in turn, created a ripple effect of growth and development, as new businesses, infrastructure, and ancillary services sprouted up to cater to the burgeoning tourist economy.
