Information about El Desemboque, Mexico and its beachside hotel, the Playa Dorada Hotel and Restaurant.

The Playa Dorada

We are a small hotel located on the beach in El Desemboque. In addition to lodging, we also offer authentic Mexican meals in our restaurant, the Restaurant Playa Dorada. We also offer parking in front of the hotel for your RV or other vehicle.

El Desemboque

El Desemboque is a very small village located on the coast of the Gulf of California, in the municipality of Heroica Caborca, Sonora. The town’s main industry is fishing, and it has not been developed as a tourism destination. In fact, you will not find many of the “modern conveniences” here – instead the main attraction is the natural beauty of the coastline and solitude of the sea.

The people here are friendly and welcoming, and El Desemboque offers a unique opportunity to find the enjoyment that a simple seaside life can offer.

The Region

El Desemboque is located along the coast of the Gulf of California in northern Sonora, Mexico. There are a few coastal communities in this area, and most of them remain undeveloped, without basic services or amenities other than the beauty of the sea and local treasures like home-cooked seafood meals prepared by locals.

The exception to this is the seaside resort city of Puerto Peñasco, also known as Rocky Point, which is a popular tourist destination that features upscale lodging, fabulous local attractions and fun annual beachside events. Read more about Rocky Point.
