We’ve seen our share of movie and novela (Mexican soap opera) productions here in town. A few years ago Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were here to film the movie Babel and there have been many rumors about other celebrities who visit here incognito as well. I have yet to see any one of them but I really don’t doubt that they come to enjoy the laid back difference from their normal life.

Most recently in June we had the likes of Rosario Dawson, Michael Pena and America Ferrera here in town for the filming of the movie Chavez. Above is a photo of them enjoying the sunset and margaritas in Old Port, right here in Puerto Peñasco on June 17th, while taking a break from shooting the new movie ‘Chavez’.

There is quite a list of programs that were filmed at least in part around Rocky Point and Sonora, Mexico! I was actually very surprised, and a bit impressed. Of course, I have always known that we have something special here. I just hadn’t expected Hollywood to know.
