Punta Colonet

Punta Colonet (Chuwílo Ksaay (dry arroyo) in the Kiliwa language), north of San Quintín, Baja California, is one of the most productive agricultural areas in Mexico's Baja California peninsula. Its proximity to Mexican Federal Highway 1 and the United States have spurred the growth of large commercial farming in the area. Punta Colonet is a beautiful, unspoiled area where orchards and farms run right to the ocean's edge. The point, nearby town, bay, and cape are reputedly named after Captain James Colnett, a British sea captain who explored this section of the Pacific coast in the late 18th century. There has been tremendous growth in the region over the last five years.
