Introducing Bahía de Kino
Laid-back Bahía de Kino, a dreamy beach paradise is named for Padre Eusebio Kino, who established a small mission here for the indigenous Seri people in the 17th century. The old part, Kino Viejo, is the original settlement. This typical Mexican fishing village fans out along the lengthy main beach, which is perfect for swimming. It’s where you’ll likely spend most of your time, and also where you’ll find the ‘snowbirds’ (retired North American citizens who head south for winter). Look out for those hulking RVs. High season is from November to March; at other times, you may find yourself blissfully alone in the hotels here.
