One of our most unique destinations, Vidanta Puerto Peñasco sits on a piece of land twice the size of Manhattan island with its own private airport, the first privately built airport in Mexico. Puerto Peñasco is often called “Rocky Point” in English, and is sometimes called “Arizona’s beach” as it is the coast closest to the major cities of Phoenix, Tucson, and Yuma. Guests from the US typically fly into Phoenix, AZ, then drive to the resort (a three-hour drive).
