Topolobampo is a port town in Gulf of California (aka Sea of Cortez) in Mexico's Sinaloa state, with population around 7,000. Port Topolobampo connects Mexico's northern states through Chihuahua-Pacific Railroad (aka El Chepe). Daily ferries connect Topolobampo with La Paz (Baja California Sur).
Topolobampo is the beginning of an international trade corridor called "La Entrada al Pacifico", which ends close to Midland-Odessa (Texas USA). Topolobampo was the site of an "utopian" colony experiment inspired by the economic ideas of Henry George (1839-1897). The utopian group published "The Credit Foncier of Sinaloa" (newsletter in English). The masthead said "Collective ownership and management for public utilities and conveniences - the community responsible for the health, usefulness, individuality and security of each". A 2-page copy of 1st edition (September 1889) has been preserved in Cleveland (Ohio USA) at Western Reserve Historical Society.
In January 2019, the UK-based company CMV (Cruise and Maritime Voyages) announced its plans to homeport in Puerto Penasco the 550-passenger liner Astoria. Shipping operations were scheduled to start on December 7 (2019) with voyages to Baja California and Mexican Riviera ports. CMV's 12-day itinerary "Treasures of the Seas of Cortez" visits as call ports Topolobampo, Mazatlan, Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, Loreto, Santa Rosalia, Guaymas (San Carlos). CMV Astoria cruise prices started from USD 1600 per person. With Astoria's Puerto Penasco homeporting, CMV targets almost exclusively the Arizona-US market due to homeport's proximity to Phoenix, Tucson and Yuma.
