Love the area. Has some hidden gems when it comes to food and you might just find something to pick up as sueviners to bring back home. The down side is some of the hassle. If you don't like saying no constantly then avoid this area. As you will be asked to look and buy stuff, or come in and... More

Not a huge market area but the fish is FRESH. Not much besides fish and Mexican curios and a lovely boardwalk overlooking the rocks.

I had never even heard of Puerto Penasco before seeing the signs as we were driving to Organ Pipe Monument . Since we started our day so early we finished in the park by mid afternoon . Traveling into Mexico hadn't entered my mind , but since it was so close we all agreed to drive down . This was... More

The city sinks more and more money into old port, making it a better and better each year I go. I love it down there but never buy from the vendors, they all charge way too much and always say it is due to larger rent. Trust me, you can get what ever you want somewhere else, much cheaper.

The Manecon or main street, is quite charming. Great restaurants, shop keepers are friendly, fish market is awesome and the public area has been redone in recent years. Clean, new but still a great reflection of Mexico.

It took a bit of searching to find the entrance, but was very worth it. A great place to buy shrimp directly from the shrimp boats. There are several excellent, seemingly trustworthy vendors. We bought sensational shrimp twice there - once to eat and once to bring home (in a cooler with lots of ice). Prices are negotiable for the... More

The old port has always been an attraction in Rocky Point, but over the last few years they have really improved it. There are a plethora of shops and restaurants / bars. Parking can sometimes be a bear, as a rule of thumb you can park on the road if you park in the direction of traffic. Make sure to... More

I suppose that this was once a "tipico" charming old Malecon, but drunk Americans have pretty much ruined it. Seems to be an alcohol-fueled tourist trap.

The Old Port is a blast. Merchants, booze, and seafood galore. Took advantage of Lucky's $25 all you can drink special. Wow!
