Welcome to Rancho Puerto Blanco

Welcome to the website of Rancho Puerto Blanco in Caborca, Sonora, Mexico.

This large working ranch that is also a major Northern Sonora tourist destination is located just a short drive from the Arizona border in the Mexican state of Sonora and is home to the largest concentration of rock art – petroglyphs and pictographs – in Latin America.

Its two main petroglyph sites, La Proveedora and San Jose Hill, combined have nearly 6,000 examples of fascinating ancient rock art. See the different ways that the human form was depicted in artistic form by ancient rock artists, as well as a variety of other shapes that they left behind to describe their world – animals, scenes and freeform designs.

Visits to the ranch are by appointment only, so please contact us today with questions or to make reservations to visit this truly special place.
