First time here but we were recommend by a local to eat at Mary's restaurant, everything was very delicious! OMG we all loved it, it was so good! We had a 2 person plate with shrimp and flounder and the kids had shrimp cocktails. Very affordable also. Trinkets are a mix of bootlegged items and clothing and traditional Mexican souvenirs....

This is a great place to try your negotiating skills as everyone has a "great deal" for you. You just have to figure out much better the deal can get. We bargained for a nice blown glass pitcher and set of glasses as well as trinkets for the kids as souvenirs. You often get a better deal bargaining one more... More

It's a great place to gather in the evenings - frequently there is music and there are always vendors and shops.

Lots of fun to wander down the Malecon and browse the shops. The shopkeepers will hawk and try to bring you in, but "no, gracias" is an OK answer. Bargaining is acceptable, but remember to be respectful and acknowledge that their item is nice, it's just that the price is too high. There are some nice restaurants along the Malecon... More

We have been going to "Old Port" for 30 years. It has changed a lot in that time. It is a great place to get the feel of the shrimp vendors, good small restaurants and lots of Mexican shopping. It is a must if you go to Puerto Penasco..

Old Port is surprisingly real given it is a tourist destination. The shop keepers are friendly and engaging without a hard sell edge to them like so many others. A great stop if your in Puerto Penasco.

My husband and I took a taxi from our hotel, very nice taxi driver; we walked around, bought a few things and then a person with"credentials" approached us to see if we wanted to do a boat ride. He made it sound so good we decided to do it. Horrible experience, the only nice thing about it was the live... More

A very touristic place packed with souvenir stores and some very good restaurant. Do not miss the sunset from the Malecon or the stairway by the plaza in front of it. We were a family of two couples and two children and we felt completely save and relaxed.

Great place to eat fresh seafood, walk around check out all the shops and get a drink! Everything you need in one spot. Great place to sit on an upper deck restaurant or bar and people watch
