Puerto Peñasco strengthens inclusive beach access

Puerto Peñasco recently reaffirmed its spot as one of the most inclusive beaches in northwestern Mexico, inaugurating renovations to the northern and southern access points to Playa Hermosa.

Mayor Jorge Pivac Carrillo emphasized this project is the best of its kind in Sonora, making Puerto Peñasco stand out as a city with accessible points that are quipped with infrastructure to ensure persons with disabilities or problems with mobility can safely enjoy our beaches.

ZOFEMAT director Luis Cesar García detailed the comprehensive project was made possible through measures taken by the prior administration, and through resources of the Federal Maritime Zone Accumulated Fund.  The newly inaugurated work includes a multi-level ramp, security booths with monitoring patios for emergencies, curbs and trash cans, flat slabs at the bottom of the ramps, public bathrooms, self-sustaining solar lamps, as well as repair and maintenance to stairs and repaving of parking spots.

The project, representing an investment of 13,252,000 pesos, will benefit residents and visitors alike. The inclusive access points encompass the southern entry to Playa Hermosa (near Peñasco del Sol hotel / restaurant Gamma) as well as the northern entrance at what is commonly known as “Bajada de los Guardados”.
