Education in Rocky Point Mexico (Puerto Penasco)
Puerto Penasco’s unique status as both a ‘free trade’ zone, a Sonoran wildlife area, and literally the only ‘beach’ to millions of residents of the Sonoran region makes it a prime area of study.
Puerto Penasco is the focus of many US/Mexico joint educational programs, most of which cater to elementary, high school and college students focusing on marine wildlife and/or the Sonoran region in general.
Here’s a sampling of links to get you started:
