We have spent a lot of time in the Old Port area. There are plenty of shops and the fish market is a good place to buy shrimp. Plenty of good places to eat. Parking is sometimes a challenge on the main street, but you can always park on a side street or on the next street over. If you... More

We never get tired of walking around, finding something we dont need, buying fish, having some beers or lunch. Its Mexico so of course the shop owners try to lure you in but its fun. Highly recommend you visit the Shop called Mercedes. Amazing glass ware and ceramics. No haggling so thats nice too. Just off the malecon and across... More

we found it easier to take a cab than to try and find parking at the old port. These shops were the best stocked with trinkets and bobbles. So many little places to eat that you will find one you like.

Every time that I have gone to Old Port, it has been pretty packed. It is very slow driving through this area, but parking is usually readily available. There are tons of different things to buy here- lots of souvenirs, restaurants, and fresh seafood. It does get to be a little hard to look around in the crowds, and under... More

You know, when you watch an old movie, and you see the little old port, buzzing with activities and fishmongers, frozen in the years gone by and you think: Oh, it must have been nice to walk there? That's the Old Port in Puerto Penasco for you. Lots of shopping (not the best quality) and fish merchants, bars, restaurants. It's... More

This is the place to spend some time looking at things to buy, getting a great lunch, and buying fresh shrimp to take back to the condo for grilling.

The vendors are friendly although admittedly a bit pushy but never rude. It always fun to stroll down the streets to look at what's for sale and people watch. A good deal can be had with a little haggling and checking around. The locals are always good natured and will engage in a good conversation.

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!
