Puerto Penasco Timeshare
Puerto Penasco is a beautiful town located on the Sea of Cortez, along the northern coast of the Gulf of California in northwestern Mexico. Located about 80 miles from the Arizona border, Puerto Penasco, which also means "Rocky Point" in English, has long been a tourist destination for visiting Americans. Because of the town's unique coastal location on the fringe of the Sonora Desert, it is known for both its beaches and its warm weather – the perfect location for a Puerto Penasco timeshare vacation.
The average year-round high temperature in the area is in the low 80s, which is ideal to take advantage of the wonderful beach activities and water sports at Playa Hermosa Beach in Puerto Penasco. Vacationers can swim nearly every month of the year, while deep sea fishing, boating, snorkeling and scuba diving are all popular activities.
A Puerto Penasco timeshare at the beach is the perfect spot for families with children. Banana boat rides along the coast near the beach are enticing, and pirate ship cruises are also available. Pirate cruises include family games and meals. Snorkeling is also a popular pastime for families due to the reefs and unique rock formations in the area.
Looking for something more adventurous? Try heading out to San Jorge Island, otherwise known as Bird Island, for some kayaking and snorkeling. The island got its nickname because it hosts migrating birds, but also is home to sea lions and sea turtles.
For those looking to hit the links, The Links at Las Palomas is a great option with a spectacular view of the desert meeting the sea. Noted as the only true links golf course in northwest Mexico, this par 72, 18-hole course will offer a challenging design, yet is great for any skill level.
Puerto Penasco timeshare owners at Mayan Palace will be delighted at the Jack Nicklaus-designed course on property, while Laguna Del Mar also offers a great option for those looking for a change of pace.
One of the most unique aspects of this region is the desert terrain coupled with the volcanic activity that took place over an estimated four millions years, most recently 11,000 years ago. The amazing crater landscape has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage area and was the region that NASA used for astronaut lunar training from 1965-70 prior to the missions to the moon. Look for El Pinacate and Gran Desierto de Altar if you plan to check it out.
Bars and nightclubs are popular destinations for vacationers looking get out on the town. The El Malecon boardwalk is the place to be for the evening, especially for the amazing sunsets that the region provides. Restaurants featuring amazing local seafood, live music and boutique shopping are also the featured attractions.
In the evenings, some vacationers enjoy sunset cruises or dinner cruises where you can catch a glimpse of dolphins and whales. With all of this activity in this emerging destination, it seems natural that timeshare resorts are popping up – providing the best way to see everything that Puerto Penasco has to offer.
