Sonora ticketed front row

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

In my imagination the Sonora state resembles the actress Maria Felix, the delicious flour tortillas Caborca, the gardens of houses in Alamos, the Sea of ​​Cortez, the tang of bacanora, however, now, also been thinking about this I refer to the action. Recognizing Sonora
I had already seen the sinuosity of the Sierra Madre Occidental, since then I fell in love with its mountains, so close to the tropics,

align themselves with moisture to become a haven for various forms of animal and plant life, but I never admitted to its mangroves and had sailed the rivers, so far I can say just beginning to learn Sonora.
I came directly to Los Alamos, I’ve always liked for its colonial houses of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, its orchards and gardens where they grow mangoes and pomegranates and seek beautiful flower beds, pools and fountains.
The first thing I did when arriving at Los Alamos was to meet my good friend Spiro Pavlovich, director of Municipal Tourism in Sonora who had prepared for me and the bike to visit the Sierra de San Bernardo. Pedaling at this place is like buying front row ticket to watch the spectacle of nature, this is one of the places in Mexico with the highest diversity and biological wealth, counting among its assets with 1,100 recorded species of higher plants and 351 species birds among which are the green macaw, the mountain parrot, the golden eagle, osprey, falcons, eagles and hawks, to name a few.
Then I went to Huatabampo (“Sauce on the Water” Cahita language), where the first thing I did was give me a swim at the beach and I was ready for the next stop: the mouth of the Rio Mayo, and back to water take a kayak trip to the sand dunes. The Mayo is the second largest river in Sonora and one of the few with perennial streams, their waters have subsided with the construction of a dam and are used for irrigation. By boat you can make a nice route and arrive at Santa Barbara, a town in May. And for lovers of photography, the ride offers amazing scenery. During the kayaking, bird watching that live among the mangroves, is the main activity, the “paddle” is just a complement, and be able to observe such beautiful birds in their natural habitat is carried throughout the function.
The time paddling to reach the dunes is about 40 minutes and believe me, it is worthwhile to do a river and join sand dunes in turn are attached to the sea, is not an everyday thing. And in the dunes, you can practice

And yes. Navopatia continued to reach, where a stately home mangle a family of dolphins!

This place is an hour and a half of Huatabampo and is ideal for the practice of camping, it’s so neat its variety of birds that settled here a research center at the University of Washington for bird watching as caracara The black duck, the white pelican, the Harris hawk and woodpeckers, among many others.

Staying in Sonora is an almost irresistible temptation, but I have to go. On another occasion again to visit indigenous communities and Mayo gaurijios to learn about their origins, their culture and how they have adapted to civilization.

Rocky Point Pizzazz

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

The battle of the beaches: Two seaside towns on the Gulf of California are tussling for tourists. Both promise sun, sand and serenity. But San Felipe is quaint. Penasco has more pizzazz. And they both want you.


Puerto Penasco Mexico

Once, it was enough to be Arizona’s beach, a nice wide patch of below-the-border shoreline where college kids could camp out and drink too much.

But now, it wants to be more than a mere party town. In less than a decade, more than three-dozen condo towers have risen in this town’s Sandy Beach area, surrounded by ever-widening waves of upscale vacation homes. It looks like a cellphone commercial by Samuel Beckett, all these rectangles of steel and glitz erupting at the edge of the barren, sandpaper-flat desert.

“Sandy Beach is like Maui. This is the happening spot,” condo sales specialist Mary Snyder told me as we stood in a model unit. “Out by the Mayan” — half an hour south of town — “is like Kauai.”

Because this is the desert and you can’t surf here, Snyder’s Hawaiian analogy is slightly imperfect. But it tells you something about Penasco’s ambitions.

Puerto Penasco (also known as Rocky Point) has been growing like a four-star weed, and it wants to steal visitors from Baja California — not only from San Felipe, its sibling across the sea, but also from the golfing-fishing-partying-and-real-estate-speculating juggernaut now known as Los Cobos.

The first flights from California started landing here Oct. 30 — three turboprop planes a week from LAX. A new airport, big enough to accommodate jets, is supposed to make its debut by summer 2009. And a new highway to the north is due to open later this year, shortening the drive from Southern California by about 100 miles.

So Puerto Penasco wants us. But do we want Puerto Penasco?

Some of us won’t. If you’re in search of cobblestone streets or colonial architecture or tropical landscapes or big waves, you’d be wasting your time here.

But if you’re looking for Mexican beachfront lodgings, fishing, watersports, off-roading and golf — well, many prices are lower here than in Los Cabos, and many penthouses are higher. And because this place has more than twice the population of San Felipe, it has more action as well.



A character study of two Mexican vacation towns

Sonora’s Puerto Penasco and Baja California’s San Felipe appeal in different ways to visitors from north of the border.



One day I found myself squinting at the sea from a Sonoran Sun Condo development, looking out a window filled with nothing but sky and sea. Far below, a lone couple strolled the chilly beach beside a row of palapas. This lavishly furnished unit, with three bedrooms, a kitchen and 1,600 square feet of patio space.

Meanwhile, just a mile or two up the coast lies the Reef, a beachfront restaurant, bar, RV park and convenience store that stands perfectly as a symbol of the older, grittier Penasco. It’s $5 a night to camp, the floor of the bar is concrete and the restaurant’s cuisine, according to its local advertising, is “gormet.”

For those who would rather skip 21st century civilization and commune instead with the stark natural landscape, there are the craters and lava fields of El Pinacate national park, 32 miles north of town. There’s a kayak rental operation by the old port, and San Jorge island, 27 miles away by boat, offers birding and snorkeling in the company of sea lions. The Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans, a local environmental group, organizes other day trips as well.

The year-round population, growing fast, is about 60,000, most of whom live on the dirt streets set back from the beachfront resort zone. To the north is Cholla Bay, where the first  American vacation rentals started taking shape more than a decade ago. To the south is Las Conchas, a newer enclave of vacation homes, many still under construction.

The Puerto Penasco area has two 18-hole golf courses, both completed in 2006. (Los Cabos has seven; San Felipe, one.) There are ATV and watersports rentals, sunset cruises and plenty of bars.

Looking upon the sea on the evening of my arrival, a single shrimp boat cruised along. The beach, vast and litter-free, was nearly empty, amid gusty winds and 65-degree temperatures, routine for January. And as I watched, the beach grew: The tide was going out on a full-moon evening, and the difference between high and low tide here can be a quarter-mile.

If you keep your eyes on the sea and sky, you can easily imagine Penasco’s days as a fishing camp in the 1930s, and its emergence as a party place after the paved road to Arizona went through in the 1940s. These days, it’s illegal to take the storied totuava, a now-endangered fish that was plentiful in the 1950s and ’60s. But the catch still includes plenty of big fish: bass, corvina, grouper, pompano, sierra and yellowtail from boats, trigger fish from the shore.

Every spring, visitors come flooding in, including thousands of spring-breakers from the  Arizona, New Mexico , texas and colorado.  Throughout the spring, the summer and fall, it’s the Arizonians who keep Puerto Penasco busy.

The tourism office counts more than 72 restaurants in town, along with 14 RV and camping facilities  and dozens of hotels, motels and condo resort developments, with perhaps 5,000 rooms. Though most of the condo buildings are huddled along Sandy Beach, some of the fanciest lodgings lie half an hour south at the 3-year-old Mayan Palace, which combines time-share units with short-term rentals — at $395 a night and up.

I stayed, with mixed results, at the Peñasco del Sol Hotel, which somebody is going to have to nominate as a historic structure pretty soon — after all, it dates all the way to the early 1990s, when it was built near the Old Port area under the name Plaza las Glorias. And there’s another reason the Peñasco del Sol stands out.
