OLD MISSION AND IMPORTANT FISHING PORT

It's a place with a rich history, as the Bay of Guaymas was inhabited by the Guaymas, Seri, and Yaqui tribes. In 1701, the missionaries Eusebio Kino and José Ma. Salvatierra established the Jesuit missions of San José de Guaymas. In the 19th century, commercial activity increased, leading to it being recognized as a major port in 1837, and gaining city status in 1862. 

This city has preserved its historical heritage, reflected in its buildings and streets, creating a peaceful and quiet atmosphere.

Guaymas boasts 175 kilometers of coastline with beautiful bays and incredible beaches. It has fishing fleets, docks, and warehouses, forming a significant fishing industry that contributes 70% of the state of Sonora's production.

The Bay of San Carlos offers modern port facilities and a solid tourist infrastructure with hotels, restaurants, and hostels for boats and trailers. Additionally, its port receives national and international cruises, and from here, one can take a ferry to Santa Rosalía in Baja California.

The most famous celebration in the port is the Guaymas Carnival, held every February since 1888

In its surroundings, there are several interesting places, such as Sahuaral, located just 20 minutes away in the ejido San José de Guaymas, which features huge cardon cacti approximately 500 years old and reaching up to eight meters in height.

40 km from Guaymas lies El Himalaya, considered one of the most beautiful places in Sonora. It's a unique location due to the enormous yellow-reddish stone formations, a result of a volcanic eruption thousands of years ago. It also contains archaeological remains and caves with cave paintings.

Within Himalaya, you can find Ensenada Chica Beach, a favorite spot for local fishermen, and Peña Blanca, named after a rocky formation in the middle of the sea. Its calm and solitary beaches are excellent for snorkeling and diving, with clear waters and the rocks creating a tranquil environment. Guaymas is located 134 kilometres (83 mi) south of the state capital of Hermosillo, and 389 kilometres (242 mi) from the U.S. border.
