Guaymas is a port along the western mainland coast of Mexico in the Sea of Cortez standing on a small bay on the Gulf of California, near the mouth of the Río Yaqui. It has a picturesque almost landlocked natural harbour surrounded by mountains. Guaymas has experienced a colourful past. Though sixteenth century explorations visited the bay and harbour, Guaymas was not settled until the early eighteenth century. In the mid-eighteen hundreds U.S. Naval forces attacked and occupied the city for several months. Subsequently, a French count and a band of pirates attempted to seize the city shortly after an American by the name of William Walker tried to found a western empire using Guaymas as the base. The only buildings of interest are Porfiriano bank buildings but there are good beached to the north at Miramar and San Carlos.
