Time for ocean fun! Within driving distance of several beaches, all you need to do is decide which one to see first.

San Luis is located at the southwestern corner of Arizona, just across the Arizona-Mexico border from San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico, and few hours’ drive from the California coast. Being a border community, the town offers visitors a true multicultural experience, from dining to shopping to festivals.

Arizona may be a landlocked state, but the white beaches of El Golfo de Santa Clara are a mere seventy miles away from San Luis, where you can choose from such recreational activities as sailing, swimming, and off-roading. A bit further down the coast, you can visit the resort city of Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point), Mexico, where you can scuba dive, snorkel, kayak, and stroll shell-filled beaches. If you’re a foodie, you will definitely enjoy the regional seafood abundantly available. Three hours to the west of San Luis lay the Pacific Ocean and the beaches of San Diego, California. 

Location is everything, and this border town is proud to say it's the second busiest border town in Arizona, with a new commercial port of entry that directly connects the Mexican states of Sinaloa and Sonora with major U.S. markets, including Los Angeles, San Diego, and Phoenix.
