San Carlos is a beachfront subdivision within the port city of Guaymas, in the northern state of Sonora in Mexico. It is noted for the exceptional clarity and warmth of the ocean water in its shallow bays. It lies on the body of water known as the Gulf of California or Sea of Cortez. Given the size of the city, with nearly 7,000 inhabitants, there is a remarkable number of RV parks, resorts and stores. There is also a very large and active diving community.
There are also many Americans and Canadians that live in San Carlos during the Winter as the Summer months are very hot and humid. There are many opportunities to fish, dive, and relax on the beach.
San Carlos is about a six hour drive from the United States along Mexican interstate Highway 15. The trip from the United States requires that foreigners obtain a tourist visa, but they are no longer required to get a car permit if they are traveling by private automobile. This is required only if they travel south of Guaymas. The area where these car permits are obtained is referred to as "El 21" as it is 21 kilometers from the border or at the border itself.

really beautiful the panoramic view of San Carlos paradise, with the colour tints and the different layers to create a superb and spectacular sight.

Excelente composición de este baia, con la forma circular de la laguna de paraiso. Es una lastima que las montagnas nel fondo fueran cortadas, pero, comprendo que era dificil incluir todo en la misma foto.
Gracias por compartir.
