Renting a car (or atv) daily. Any recommendations?

I'm having some trouble finding any online sources. I'm 23 years old and come to Puerto Penasco from Colorado every 2 months or so. I stay at a location deep into Los Conchas, and taxi prices are nearly 300 pesos basically anywhere I need to go. I'd like to just rent a car (or preferably a daily ATV if it's comparable to a car in terms of price?) so I can avoid the hassle of taking taxis.

Does anyone have any non-outdated sources for me to check out? Everything I'm finding about cars seem to be from <2016.

Edit: If it matters, I fly into Phoenix and take a shuttle bus to Puerto Penasco.

Thank you!

Buffalo Car Rentals, off of Freemont next to Combo Taco is a good place (+52 638-388-9999). their rate includes Mexico auto insurance, pretty comparable prices to north of the border.

There are several places to rent an ATV as you go from Plaza Del Sol / Max's restaurant area toward Playa Bonita. Don't know their rates, but they're all concentrated in a small stretch of road.

Were you paying 300 pesos from Las Conchas regularly or was it a one time thing? It sounds really high.

Not sure how long your stays are in Los Conchas, but have you considered renting a car away from Sky Harbor airport (far better rates), and just driving yourself to Rocky Point? What you save in shuttle costs would help offset the car rental price. Just a thought.
