The United States/Mexico border is open and people are flocking to the beach. Memorial Day weekend found the town bustling with people from Arizona, California and Texas. The RCPM just had their concert and the town was packed. Post Covid 19, Sunday would find long waits at the border. Now it appears the tourists started going home on Monday instead of Sunday. Monday is the old Sunday but now many are going back on Tuesday morning. If you are planning on coming down over a weekend, be prepared for long lines at the border on these days. You will also find long back ups coming into Mexico as many times they are searching every car entering. Although an inconvenience to those coming in, they have found several vehicles carrying guns and ammo (which is the reason for the search). Just be patient, it will be worth the wait. The beaches are spectacular with clear blue water and clean soft sand.
Here you will have beachfront condos and homes to choose from for your visit of all sizes. There are so many activities to choose from for you and your family…. 3 major golf courses, deep sea fishing, zip lining, horse back riding, sunset cruises, shelling or just sitting and watching the water go by.
Despite the economy being shut down for most of 2020 and part of 2021, there have been many new little restaurants that have popped up all over town. Most have only outdoor seating, but the delicious food and great service will make up for that. You can choose from burger places, authentic Mexican food and Greek food. Many are located in neighborhoods or part of the owners home. Most do not serve adult beverages, but you are allowed to bring your own. Choose from breakfast, lunch or dinner places that will not disappoint. A few to check out La Negrita, Jessie’s, Los Mequitas Tacos (if you like Goat, try this out) and Toscos. MTZ Cantina is a larger restaurant is located by the docks is getting great reviews. Just up from Calle 13 on Plutarco Ellis Calle, you will find a Chinese place that is always packed. It doesn’t say Chinese food but is a huge building 2 blocks north of Dukes. There is something for everyone in Puerto Peñasco.
The real estate market is booming, with our tourists looking for places to retire in, condos and homes for families to share or places that they can rent when they are no using them. Encantame Towers east of Playa Encanto will consist of 3 towers and is currently delivering the first building. Las Conchas which has a huge American population is located a short distance from the city is seeing developments cropping up as well as a lot of homes being built or remodeled. Many younger people with families are moving here, as they can work remotely from home. It is a great place to work from home as you can sit on your patio and have coffee, then work for the day and enjoy a glass of wine at sunset while looking at the beautiful Sea of Cortez instead of lengthy commutes in the big cities.
“Paradise” welcomes you home. Spend July 4th in Rocky Point.
