Home Travel & Leisure Travel Rocky Point: Spring is in the Air

Perfect weather’s here and we’re officially in our tourist season. Are you coming to Rocky Point this year? We have a renewed excitement waiting for you. Here are a few activities waiting for you to arrive.


Have you ever visited the oyster farm? Drive out Freemont Boulevard and turn right at the Ostiones Acua Mar sign (it’s less than 10 minutes from town). Bring a picnic, music and enjoy fresh oysters straight from the oyster farmer to you. You’ll love the feeling of a lazy day by the water while sitting at your table enjoying your fresh catch.


For the more adventurous tourists we have jet skis you can rent for half the price of California or Lake Tahoe. The rate is $60.00 per hour. The rental process is easy and in town

One of our favorites is El Conchal restaurant. El Conchal has the very best shrimp tacos ever! They are out of this world. Ask for the “governor’s style”; you’ll be so glad you did. They have their special El Conchal sauce at the table and for purchase, plus cold beers, fans and so much more. We’re there at least once a week.

The evening of May 4th beginning at 6:00 P.M. we’ll have our 2nd Annual Tequila and Mariachi Festival located in the Old Port. $10.00 per person or $20.00 for VIP table seating. Enjoy the sounds and samplings of Penasco with many foods and various Tequilas all on display throughout the festival. www.tequilapenasco.com

May 25th is the second Annual Las Vegas Charity Night. This year it’s being held in the 2nd floor conference room at the Sonoran Sky Resort. With black jack tables, a roulette table and possibly a craps table you’re in store for a fun evening. Tickets include a buffet dinner from the Sonoran Sky Ocean View Restaurant. Last year it proved to be one of the most fun nights in Puerto Penasco. All proceeds from ticket sales got to the Family Assistance Charity Program (DIF).


Every 1st and 3rd Saturday through May we have our own Mermaid’s Market at the Shrimp Park on Boulevard Juarez and Freemont Boulevard. The Mermaid’s Market has an array of arts, crafts, clothing, gifts, treasures and more. It’s a great way to spend the afternoon: 10:00 to 5:00 PM. Be sure to stop by Naomi’s “Off the Beach” and ask her about the fashion show event each spring and fall.


Looking for an exceptional massage be sure to ask for Claudia at Penasco Beauty Center across from Super Ley Market. Penasco Beauty Center is a full service salon and spa. A few doors down is Penasco Fitness Center offering yoga and dance classes. www.penascobeautycenter.com



How about “Fish with an Attitude” the 58th Annual Fishing Derby in Cholla Bay? It’s April 11-14, May 3-5, May 23-25 with a Fish Fry May 26th next to JJ’s Cantina. Everyone’s welcome to enter.

Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers will be entertaining June 6th through 9th on Sandy Beach.

There’s so much to share about spring in Rocky Point. The best way to experience life by the sea this spring is to come to Rocky Point. From sunset cruises to snorkeling with the sea lions at Bird Island there’s always something to do in Rocky Point. Life at the beach is a treasure you’ll be happy you gave yourself.
