There's not a whole lot to do in PP, ultimately we always find ourselves in Old Port walking around. The shopping is all the same souvenirs, horrendously overpriced sold by very pushy sales people. I understand these folks have families to feed but I wish they didn't push so hard, it's uncomfortable. On the plus side, we love the restaurants... More

Old Port was so fun! There was a ton of shopping to do and the exciting part was being able to talk with the locals and see how life is here for them. they sell really neat nick nacks so be sure to check it out!

You have to visit here (basically downtown) at least once while you're in Rocky Pt. It's the place for t-shirts and nightlfe although there are better "clubs" elsewhere. Pretty typical for a Mexican resort except for the fish markets. The real attraction is the central plaza with the statue honoring the Shrimpers who actually built the town. It's one of... More

We always have at least one meal in the old port. We aren't much for shopping but there is definitely a great variety of trinkets and clothes from mild to absurd to satisfy all tastes. Worth a little stroll and possible sit down to take in all the goings on.

A walk through Old Port is a must for first-time visitors, and a never-ending place to explore for repeat visitors as well. Shopping is mostly of the tourist / souvenir variety, with the exception of a shop or two carrying fine, higher-end jewelry and décor. Interspersed among the many shops are bars and eateries which -- after many years of... More

Lots of shops, restaurants, many fresh seafood vendors, nice architecture, statues and views. A bit of a hard-sell by vendors but it's all in fun (almost free) and they're only trying to make a living. It's a definite must to check out.

There certainly are a LOT of vendors selling a huge variety of goods . . . jewelry, hats, mens and ladies clothing, pottery, blankets and MORE blankets .... then there are the sunglasses .... oh, and the sea food ... not only fresh, but the seafood restaurants ! Narrow sidewalks in places, with somewhat aggressive merchants, but non threatening and... More

Lots of bars, lots of shopping, and you can buy your shrimp and fish to take back home! The nicest people in Rocky Point, hard working and they will clean your windshield and help you back up when you are ready to leave. Very much the tourist area of town, but still you can find decent restaurants (Viva Mexico taco... More

Great bustling area, still nice to shop as the vendors are non-aggressive and fun. Can barter and it is expected. Plenty of places to eat and lots of good food. There were hundreds of shops with beautiful merchandise. I had a great time and lots of super photo opportunities.
