We love the little children and some have very inventive ways to earn money. There was a little band of 5 children, 2 drummers, a vocalist and the nino with a horn made with a plastic bucket and a hose. Of course we rewarded them for their effort and entertainment.

We Visited Puerto Penasco March 4,5 and 6. Went to 3 Bouys at the Malecon. Bought 18 pounds of shrimp. Got home and weighed it. 6 pounds short. This has happened before. It never changes. One thing you can be sure about Puerto Penasco is that the fish venders at the Malecon will short you every time. I will continue... More

They are trying to improve this area. It has always been a bit shabby, but there is evidence of change for the better. The Malecon (waterfront walk) area is quite nice and there are some good restaurants, not mention the fresh seafood markets all along the main waterfront street. When we were there in Feb., 2015, the roads were all... More

...of a very touristy area. There are many restaurants, beautiful views, and lots of shops. Prepare yourself for the locals who hussle you for parking, windshield washing, and getting you into their shops. That being said, it is tolerable and there are some good buys after a little bargaining.

We visit Old Port everytime we visit RP. Its the place to go for shopping and has a variety of restaurants available. Parking is less than easy to find most the time and its easy to get trapped waiting to back out so be aware of that. There is a nice scenic area with benches on the edge of the... More

Kinda cool/kinda litschy, somewhat touristy, but worth a visit even for an afternoon. Poke around some of the metal work and pottery shops.
