The Sonoran Desert and the Sea of Cortez were heavily explored by the ancient nomadic people who had crossed the Bering Strait tens of thousands of years ago. Missionaries were sent to settle the lands and convert the people in the early 1500’s following the Spanish Conquest of Mexico. One of the most infamous missionaries of the times, Father Kino, had passed through Puerto Peñasco in the late 1600’s. Rocky Point was all but abandoned following the Mexican independence in 1821 and during the struggle for power that followed.
In more modern times, Rocky Point, Mexico had come to be known as a quaint fishing village prominent for its shrimp. As fisherman came to learn about what the Sea of Cortez had to offer, the town under went a growth spurt in the late 1920s. It was soon there after that the town of Puerto Penasco started to see its first hotels. However, it wasn’t until the 1950s, that the tourism industry in Rocky Point started to take off. At this time, the road from Sonoyta was paved. In the early 1950s Puerto Peñasco became recognized by the national government as a city and a local government was formed, headed by Victor Bustamante.
Today, Puerto Peñasco is a modern ocean front vacation destination with luxury resorts such as our Sonoran Spa resort. Other hotels, luxury rental homes, beachfront condominium developments, first-class restaurants, water and exploration activities, shopping, and exciting investment opportunities have sprouted up ever since the real estate boom of the early 2000s.
