Puerto Peñasco opens its doors to tourism

As Puerto Peñasco begins to gradually reopen its doors to tourism, the City Administration and the Puerto Peñasco Convention and Visitors Bureau Come to Rocky Point are providing information as to requirements on coming into town, as well as a list (to be continually updated) on Certified / Sanitized hotels / resorts / rental companies, and current restrictions/guidelines in effect across the city.

For a list of Certified Properties during this process of Phase 3, please check:  Entry protocol for tourists visiting Puerto Peñasco 

As well as the City’s site: PuertoPeñasco.gob.mx

It is important to keep the following pointers in mind as part of the present Phase III in effect (which began on June 16th). Upcoming possible phases and reopening of additional activities are to be considered in coming weeks.   Additional guidelines are listed under the Protocols on the Convention and Visitors Bureau site.
