If you aren’t aware there is a new way to get to Puerto Peñasco from Phoenix. It is called TAP ROYAL. It is a bus ride that will give you 1st class service not only while traveling on the bus but while waiting for the bus to depart as well. The cost is a bargain at only $70 round trip. The bus leaves the Phoenix terminal Thursday, Friday, Sunday and Monday at 10:00 a.m. and arrives in Puerto Penasco a little after 2:00 p.m. It leaves the Peñasco del Sol Hotel in Puerto Penasco bound for Phoenix at 4:00 p.m. and arrives around 8:30 p.m. Looking to make a reservation, you can call 602-272-3030 or in Mexico at 01-800-0011 827 or the Hotel Penasco del Sol Kiosk at 638-128-2685. You can also go to www.taproyal.com and book your tickets as well. Tickets can be purchased up to just before departure time as of this writing.
Recently the new ultra modern terminal opened at 2707 W. McDowell road in Phoenix, AZ for people traveling to and from California, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. This 5500 sq. ft facility is not only comfortable for the passengers who ride it but for the drivers as well. The upstairs features dorm style sleeping quarters, kitchen and shower facilities. Many of you probably have not ridden a bus in Mexico and do not know but the back-up driver sleeps in one of the compartments below the seat area.
The terminal, which opened in 2015, is not in a part of Phoenix where one would expect to se such a beautiful modern building. The project was funded directly from foreign investment for both the purchase of the land and the construction of the building as well. Keith Rosenblum a consultant for Mexico based Transportes y Autobuses de Pacifico or TAP ROYAL stated recently that you will never receive inferior service on a TAP bus or at the terminal. The terminal will be a luxurious place to await your trip.
If you have ever traveled in Mexico, you probably know that bus ridership in Mexico is still the dominant form of transportation. TAP is using late model Volvo 9700 luxury coaches with panoramic windows 34 Amaya seats, bathroom, professional sound system, Wi-Fi and flat screen movie monitors. TAP is also very safety conscious and the buses have a 3 point seat belt for your protection as well as highly professional drivers. They currently operate 30 buses in the United States and over 300 run through the country of Mexico.
Current US destinations are Phoenix, Tucson, Nogales, Las Vegas, Huntington Park, CA and they are now exploring entering the market in El Paso. In Mexico they service such cities as Puerto Peñasco (aka Rocky Point),Obregon, Hermosillo, Navajoa, Los Mochis, Mazatlán, Tepic, Guaymas , Guadalajara and more. With so many destinations, you can traverse Mexico for very little money and in comfort. You can sit back, relax and read a book or watch movies. With the price of gas in Mexico being so high plus the cost of the toll roads this is indeed one of the best ways to travel and it allows you to see the beautiful country side of Mexico.
Although TUFESA Bus Line out of Obregon has been doing Mexico – USA for over 10 years, they have not run any buses to Rocky Point. TAP ROYAL has been around for some time, it is the first to do the route to and from Puerto Peñasco.
If you are thinking about travel in Mexico, start with a trip to Rocky Point aboard TAP so that you get a feel for the experience. I know you will not be disappointed. Come down and spend a weekend or a week with out breaking your piggy bank. Hotel / bus packages are available so no need to drive, just sit back and dream of the beach. Put together a group of friends or your family and experience the easy of travel on a TAP ROYAL bus.
Come out and join the fun while enjoying the beautiful weather in Puerto Peñasco and the stunning Sea of Cortez views. Remember Rocky Point is only a 4 hour ride from Phoenix or Tucson.
