This northern border state is most known for its coastal resort cities with the two prominent being Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point) and San Carlos. Dining at nice restaurants, enjoying local cantinas, and just relaxing on the beach are its main attractions.

For more adventurous folks, there are boat trips to explore some of the bays and inlets found nearby in the Sea of Cortés as well as participating in a variety of water sports.

Traveling inland, visitors can encounter semiarid, desert, and mountain topography.
