Once You’re in Puerto Peñasco:
Once you have found your way to Puerto Peñasco, click on the map of the city listed below. CEDO is located in Las Conchas, which is near the bottom of the map. Depending on how you are entering Puerto Peñaso there are a variety of ways for you to get to CEDO. If you are coming from U.S. via Mexican Highway 8 you can get to CEDO two different ways.

Mexican Highway 8 turns into the main road in town, Blvd. Benito Juarez. Stay on this road through town, cross the railroad tracks, and make a left at the traffic light at Freemont Blvd. After about a mile and a half there will be a sign for Las Conchas and CEDO on the right-hand side. Bear right, off the paved road and onto the dirt road leading to Las Conchas. Just past the CETMAR High School is the Las Conchas guard house entrance.  Just say “CEDO” and they’ll let you through. CEDO is about a mile past the guard house.  Stay on the main road, and you’ll see the whale skeleton, parking lot and CEDO signs to your right. Park and follow the walkway up to the visitor’s center and main building.

You can also get to CEDO via Blvd. Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez. This road will be on your left hand side when you are first entering Puerto Peñasco on Highway 8. It will take you directly to Las Conchas. If you are trying to find CEDO from other points in town, or are entering town from another area (El Golfo de Santa Clara, Caborca, etc.) please refer to the map below; feel free to print it out, if that would be helpful to you.
