Explore The northwest and Copper Canyon
Around 16km north of Guaymas, the town of SAN CARLOS is in the infant stages of becoming a larger resort geared towards a mainly retired clientele. The chief attraction here is the scenery: the resort is dominated by the barren, jagged peaks of Cerro Tatakawi, and the scorched desert landscape makes a stunning backdrop to a series of inviting bays and calm, cobalt-blue waters. Though access to the shore is difficult, and most beaches you can reach are stony, there’s a modern marina, a golf course and scores of villas and developments linked by a long avenue of transplanted palms. The main activities here are diving and fishing.
