there are many vendors and shops that carry a variety of trinkets, beach cover-ups, t-shirts, hats, souvenirs' and a large selection of restaurants. If seafood or Mexican food is your thing you are sure to find something you like. Be prepared to negotiate a price for your purchases, my rule of thumb is to offer 1/4 of asking price and... More

This was fun! All the shops were hot but they were fun to barter with. Take your time and find your best bargains. Many places to also eat and to buy seafood things too!

Walk around the malecon with the family, after lunch. I did not felt pressured to buy anything. Just wanted to take some pictures and take notes about the details on the buildings of this old port but there is not too many. There's plenty of restaurants to choose from and local vendors selling one of a kind type souvenirs, clothing,... More

We enjoyed walking around the Malecon and wandering into a few of the shops. The merchants there are really willing to make a bargain, and you can get some great souvenirs here for nearly half the price that you would pay on the beach. Nice place for a day's stroll.

like that every sea food restaurant is within walking distance unfortunately if you buy sea food to take home most of the places have their scales rig you do not actually get what you pay for it is a shame to have this type of problem but scales are not regulated like in the estates. other than that great food...

Old Port is a very interesting place. It's fun to shop and see the sights. Lots of cool trinkets and items for sale. On the south side of the street you have the fish and shrimp markets. You will get a wiff of rotting fish but keep going. There was one little shrimp store in the middle, right across from... More

We walked through the Old Port area of Puerto Penasco several times during our 3 day weekend. It is what it is, a typical Mexican tourist spot with shop after shop of the same cheesy merchandise, restaurants, and cantinas. In the evenings, mariachi and assorted bands play in the sea front plaza of El Malecon, but they only play with... More

We usually stay in the newer area of Sandy Beach when we're in Rocky Pt. but lately have been going into the Old Port -- and always go to Kaffe House for breakfast. On our last visit we were in the mood for fresh shrimp so went to the Old Port at lunch time, where the street is lined with... More
