Road Trip to Rocky Point Mexico!

 

It IS a dry heat ... but it's a long summer, so Phoenix locals have long known lots of secrets for beating the Phoenix summer heat -  Road Trip to Rocky Point Mexico!


Road Trip to Rocky Point Mexico!

 

Puerto Peñasco (pronounced PWER-TOE  PEN-YA-SCO) is more colloquially known as Rocky Point. Puerto Peñasco is located on the Sea of Cortez in the Mexican state of Sonora, about 66 miles from the U.S. border (at Lukeville, Arizona).

 

 

Rocky Point was originally a fishing village in the 1930s, gradually developing into one of the major shrimp producing areas in the Sea of Cortez. Eventually, it was discovered by Americans as an alternative for retirement and vacation.

 

Road Trip to Rocky Point Mexico!

There are all kinds of things to do in Rocky Point, from para-sailing to deep-sea fishing to shopping. You'll also find a ton of vacation rentals, both on and off the beach. The prices are very low, compared to US standards, and some of the accommodations are quire nice. This idyllic beach town has recently become home to a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course (located at Laguna del Mar) - in case you have any golfers in tow.

 

Most people who visit Rocky Point drive there. If you decide to drive to Puerto Penasco, you must have Mexican auto insurance - it's the law.

 

Virtually any place you can spend money will readily accept US dollars. Be aware of the exchange rate ahead of time, though. Aslo, many businesses are unable to make change for anything larger than an American $20 bill, so it's a good idea to carry small bills with you.

PASSPORT NOTICE: As of June 1, 2009, you must have a passport, passport card or other travel documents authorized by the Department of Homeland Security to be able to enter the US from any bordering nations (i.e., return to the US from Mexico).
