Welcome to Topolobampo


Located 12 miles (20km) from Los Mochis on the west coast of mainland Mexico, Topolobampo is known for its beautiful views and beaches, including the scenic Maviri. The rolling sand dunes are a popular site for sand boarding and 4x4-ing, and visitors can enjoy the calm waters of the Gulf of California, perfect for sport fishing sailfish and marlin and dolphin-watching. (27km) out to sea is El Farallon, a rocky island inhabited by seals and sea lions.

A stunningly beautiful seaside town to rival any in the Mediterranean, Topolobampo has lost some of its lustre in tough economic times as the shrimping industry declines. Cruise ships in the Gulf of California still make port here however, and the town acts as a gateway to the popular Copper Canyon region. There are some good restaurants, however most tourists choose to spend their days in Los Mochis.

Information & Facts

Spanish is the official language in Mexico. Some English is spoken in tourist regions.

Mexican currency is the New Peso (MXN) divided into 100 centavos. Credit cards are widely accepted, particularly Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Travellers cheques are generally accepted, but cannot be cashed on Sundays. ATMs are available in most cities and towns and are the most convenient way to get money, but for safety reasons they should only be used during business hours. Although most businesses will accept foreign currency it is best to use pesos. Foreign currency can be exchanged at one of many casas de cambio(exchange houses), which have longer hours and offer a quicker service than the banks.
