What to do in Puerto Peñasco aka Rocky Point! Click below links

Things to Do in Rocky Point

Fans of Mexico love the stunning ocean vistas, tantalizing cuisine, and robust culture. Rocky Point boasts all of these merits – albeit on a smaller scale than more mainstream Mexico beach destinations.

  • Water Activities: All the heavy-hitters are here – snorkeling, fishing, parasailing, kite surfing and more. One thing to keep in mind is that Rocky Point is located on a gulf, meaning the waves are minimal. While surfing isn’t feasible, the calm waters make for ideal swimming conditions.
  • Sample the Sea: American fans of Mexican cuisine might not immediately think of seafood, but it’s an integral part of any menu in Rocky Point. Standouts include fresh shrimp and ceviche.
  • Charter a Boat: Private boat charters are common and inexpensive in Puerto Peñasco. Board a boat for a fishing excursion, to go snorkeling around Bird Island or for a romantic sunset cruise.
  • Explore the Beaches: The two most popular beaches in Rocky Point are Playa Hermosa and Sandy Beach. Both Playa Hermosa is best known for its tide pools and Sandy Beach is the spot for soft sand.
  • Shop for Local Goods: Rocky Point has lots of shopping areas featuring local handicrafts and clothing. Yet another perk of driving south of the border? No need to worry about extra baggage fees!
  • Nightlife: With its Spring Break reputation, it’s no surprise that Rocky Point has a bustling nightlife. There are bars a-plenty, but always keep safety in mind and don’t travel alone at night.
  • Activities for Landlubbers: The nearby sand dunes provide ample opportunity for adrenaline seekers. Quads and ATVs can be rented throughout Rocky Point and don’t forget your helmet!
