Where is Santo Tomás?


If you Google “Santo Tomás”, you could get a wide variety of results ranging from housing complexes in Arizona to the Spanish definition of Santo Tomás or the many different businesses, towns and villages in Mexico labeled as “Santo Tomás”. So, we understand if you might be confused about where our Santo Tomás Beach Community is located if you just do a general Google search. Because there are so many Mexican destinations called Santo Tomás, we thought it would be helpful to paint a clearer picture of where we are located and what is in the surrounding areas. So…where is Santo Tomás?

The Santo Tomás Beach Community is located in the Sonora region of Mexico and is nestled up against the coast of the Sea of Cortez. It is about an hour drive south of Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point) and about an hour drive west of Caborca, both of which are popular tourist destinations.

Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point) is known especially for the beaches there, and it is a common vacation destination for people from the States to go during Spring Break, and throughout the year. Santo Tomás, just a little further south, has similar beaches, but without the crowds. Where Rocky Point has great nightlife and a party atmosphere, we have a more private, placid, relaxing and family-friendly vibe. Instead of tequila shots in the sand, you can enjoy sunrise yoga on the beach, paddle-boarding, and snorkeling in the beautiful water.

Caborca is about an hour east of Santo Tomás and with the local scenery, restaurants, and shops, it is a great place to visit for an authentic Mexico experience.

Santo Tomás essentially creates a triangle with Puerto Peñasco and Caborca. It is a private beach community with both vacation rentals and properties for purchase. It is a gated community with 24-hour security, making it even easier to enjoy your quiet and peaceful getaway on our miles of serene beaches!
