DISCOVER PUERTO PENASCO
In the 1920’s John Stone from Ajo, Az came to Puerto Penasco to build a hotel & casino to profit on the people who came over the border to escape prohibition. During his time in Puerto Penasco John Stone built a well and started a flight service from Phoenix and Tucson to bring Americans to Mexico to gamble and drink. It is said that everything was going very well until Stone and the locals started to have differences they couldn’t resolve. Stone left Rocky Point but not before burning down the hotel and blowing up the water well.
The story goes that during the time John Stone was in Puerto Penasco Al Capone frequented the area and used the village as a transfer point to get liquor to his organization.
