The stunning landscape of volcanic craters bathed in black lava of el Pinacate, as well as the dunes of the Gran Altar desert, in Sonora, were declared world heritage site by UNESCO. Its ten huge, very deep, circular caters constitute only part of the beauty of this unique place in the Sonoran desert, which is home to the greatest biodiversity of the four North American deserts.
Exquisite golf courses surrounded by the desert, dunes, and immense Sea of Cortez can only be found in Puerto Peñasco, offering the perfect combination of panoramic views and meticulously designed courses by world-renowned golf experts.
Banana Boat Ride
One of visitors’ favorite recreational activities is to go for a spin on a banana boat. Jump on to one of these inflatable rides and have fun like you’d never imagine!
You don’t need anything more than a desire to laugh and have fun, plus a life vest provided by the boat operators. Banana boat rides take off right from the shore and head out to sea, though not to worry they don’t go far.
Adventures to the Dunes
Majestic dunes encircling parts of Puerto Peñasco offer a desert landscape worth admiring. Given nature’s wonder where the desert meets the sea, we are surrounded by incredibly immense sand dunes that can reach heights of 200 meters. Some of these are ideal for photo sessions, while others invite ATV adventures.
The mix of colors during sunset in Puerto Peñasco is unique and indescribable, you just have to see it to believe it and there is no better way to observe the wide range of colors that appear in the sky during an offshore trip while enjoying a traditional margarita.
