Artists are drawn to Puerto Penasco for many of the same reasons they are drawn to the southwest in general – the region’s sheer beauty. Penasco sits in a region where land meets sea, where mountains meet the desert, and where amazing sunsets segue into sweeping views of the stars at night.
In addition to the kinds of crafts many people associate with Mexico – things like the region’s reknowned woodworks, glasswork, leather, and jewelery – look long enough and you’ll find the work of fine artisans everywhere.
