Old Port is a place you have to visit at least once. Good shopping, great restaurants and don't get vexed over the haggling vendors. Remember they're all good-natured and friendly. Just smile, say Gracias, No, and move on.

Visit the fish markets and the restaurants above them. Very good prices and fresh each day. They all sell the same items and prices very little. I shopped at MR. Fish and was very happy with his prices and excellent quality

Very find restaurants and values. Just don't over buy. I purchased many Green Bay Packer items, including a back pack and an end table. Don Jose Tequila was very reasonable. Two fer's were tremendous. I certainly recommend El Capitan's on the top of Rocky Point.

this is the old town area.. it was typical of most Mexican old town spaces.. I liked the malecon for a lovely evening walk after dinner, some interesting sculptures as well.

Love the area. Has some hidden gems when it comes to food and you might just find something to pick up as sueviners to bring back home. The down side is some of the hassle. If you don't like saying no constantly then avoid this area. As you will be asked to look and buy stuff, or come in and... More

Not a huge market area but the fish is FRESH. Not much besides fish and Mexican curios and a lovely boardwalk overlooking the rocks.

I had never even heard of Puerto Penasco before seeing the signs as we were driving to Organ Pipe Monument . Since we started our day so early we finished in the park by mid afternoon . Traveling into Mexico hadn't entered my mind , but since it was so close we all agreed to drive down . This was... More

The city sinks more and more money into old port, making it a better and better each year I go. I love it down there but never buy from the vendors, they all charge way too much and always say it is due to larger rent. Trust me, you can get what ever you want somewhere else, much cheaper. Shopping... More

The Manecon or main street, is quite charming. Great restaurants, shop keepers are friendly, fish market is awesome and the public area has been redone in recent years. Clean, new but still a great reflection of Mexico.

It took a bit of searching to find the entrance, but was very worth it. A great place to buy shrimp directly from the shrimp boats. There are several excellent, seemingly trustworthy vendors. We bought sensational shrimp twice there - once to eat and once to bring home (in a cooler with lots of ice). Prices are negotiable for the... More
