Boats
Picture yourself here.

In May the weather is still beautiful and the Sea of Cortez will be warming up.  Looking for something to do while you are in Rocky Point?  Here are just a few ideas.  Go horseback riding, ride a banana boat, choose from one of our 3 beautiful golf courses  (Las Palomas, Mayan, Isla la Del Mar) choose from of our local fishing charters boats, visit the aquarium or CEDO, walk in the tide pools, go looking for Sand Dollars in Cholla Bay, shop on Rodeo Drive or the Malecon (if you can get down there), visit the Pinacate Biosphere or just sit on the beach and people watch.  Puerto Peñasco has so much to offer.  Also plan to have breakfast lunch or dinner at one of our many great restaurants.

Sea of Cortez

As you make your trip to Puerto Peñasco, please remember you will not be on the roads alone, so plan on lengthy delays coming in and going back to the USA.  As I always say, “Remember all those wonderful people you crept along with on the way in…. well guess what, you will see them again on your way home.  Drive with caution as the beach and the cold beer can and will be waiting for you.

Once you are here and settled in, it is important to realize how many people descend on this one time sleepy little village.  Don’t take needless chances passing autos or trucks, it is not worth it.  Also it is important to know that the road between Playa Bonita and the end of Sandy Beach will be packed at all times.  Yes it is a divided road but you still have to exercise caution when driving and even though you may not be impaired, the person behind you might be.  Have a designated driver if you all are planning to par take in adult beverages.  Better yet, take a cab then everyone can have fun.  If you are going to any place on the way to Cholla Bay, please remember that when you are coming back if it is dark, you come off of dirt onto pavement right in front of Esmeralda and that is a divided road.

Before leaving the USA, you need to buy Mexican Auto Insurance.  This can be purchased online or in Ajo at Ajo Insurance Center, Gila Bend Insurance Center or any of the other places that sell Mexican Insurance.  It would be recommended if you have a newer vehicle that has a loan on, make certain to buy full coverage.  By law you must have Mexican Insurance to meet the Mexican Liability.  Liability insurance only will do nothing for you vehicle so that is why you should buy full coverage.  Ajo Insurance will  leave your policy in a box in case you come after hours or you can print it online if you are buying it online.

When crossing into Mexico at Lukeville/Sonoyta the speed limit is 40 Km per hour or keep it under 24 mph or you will most likely be ticketed.  There is a Red Cross station that collect donations in Sonoyta and there is a STOP sign there that you must stop for even if you don’t donate.  When you arrive in Rocky Point, they are many new stop signs so be on the lookout.

We welcome you to our home town so please come and enjoy everything we have to offer.

Memorial Day Weekend and Beyond in Rocky Point, Mexico

Memorial day is fast approaching, so I hope you have your hotel or condo reservations already.  If not try Puerto-Penasco.com and let them try to help you.

Rocky Point Bird Island

The weather and the water are great with daytime weather being in the mid 80’s.  There are plenty of water activities to par take in such as trips to Bird Island via Eco Tours, fishing on the About Time, fishing with Captain Adolpho Perez , sunset cruises on the ever popular El Rey del Mar aka The Pirate Ship, fun for all ages and take a sunset cruise on the Senorita Rita (the newest of the sunset boats).  The Seniorita Rita features an open bar as well as  Mai Tai’s, Margarita’s and cold draft beer.  Rocky Point is the place to celebrate Memorial Day, but don’t forget the meaning of it either.

Boat Sunset Cruise

Don’t like being on the water … can’t imagine why, but you can always go horse back riding on the beach. Don’t forget the ever popular Banana boats.  The water should be great for kayaking or snorkeling as well.   Bring your beach chairs down and just hang out on the beach and people watch or read a good book, while listening to the tide roll in and out.

Banana Boat in Rocky Point

If your thing is riding in the desert, there are plenty of places to rent those rhino’s and Quads.  Just be careful on them and don’t drive them through the neighborhoods, kicking up as much dust as you can.  Drive responsibly and don’t be a statistic.

Atv in Rocky Point

There will be live music at most of the cantinas on the Malecon and near the Sonoran resorts as well.
The Mermaid Market will be at the Sonoran SPA on Saturday the 28th from 10 am – 3 pm.  Looking for a special gift or something for your self, this is the place to shop.
One more thing is that the Marine Festival starts today and runs through June 5.  Many events behind the stadium as well as near the Old Port. This is always a fun filled event. In Spanish it is called Dia de la Marina.

Some tips when you come down, plan on long lines coming into Mexico on Friday and remember those same people will be going back when you do on Sunday, so be prepared to wait. You can go to www.bwt.cbp.gov to check on the crossing wait times. If you can go back late on Monday you should avoid some of the traffic.  Remember we have Sam’s Club here, so no need to haul meats and a lot of food that is now prohibited across the border.

Stop by any of our local produce places or out of the back of a truck and get the sweetest watermelons in the world.  It is also Mango and Pineapple time.  Speaking of Pineapples, try one from the green truck on the corner of Calle 13 and Plutarco Elias Calle.

When you come into Puerto Peñasco from the north, the new overpass is open if you haven’t been here in awhile and makes that intersection that goes to El Golfo/Mayan Palace so much nicer.

Biker Rocky Point Rally 2015

As you get near the old airport, notice the huge billboard advertising our biggest event of the year, the 2016 Rocky Point Bike Rally.  It will be held November 10th – 13th.  Make your plans early as hotels are filling up already.  You can now register on line for $20 at www.rockypointrally.com and pick up your package when you arrive here at the registration area by Barklin Gas Station/Circle K.  Easy to find, parking lot is filled with bikes.  Last year it is estimated we had 8500 bikers from all over the US, Canada and Mexico.  Shortly after Memorial Day we will be posting the list of entertainment and tentative schedule of events.

So I invite you to come visit our home city and say to you “Welcome Home”.  Have fun and be safe.
