Trip report Oct.3-7. Another great trip!

We just returned from a 4 night trip to Rocky Point. We stayed again at Las Palomas. The town was even less crowded than it had been our last trip in March.

The Malecon is all torn up with replacing the sidewalks on the vendor side of the street. There were also new street lights in the port area.

The first day was really warm, then the weather cooled and was perfect. This was the first time I swam in the ocean, water nice and warm.

We were the only customers at the Friendly Dolphin, Aqui con Flavio had 3 tables, 1 other group at Pollo Lucas.

We ate at a new restaurant since our last trip in March. Fullenio's Taco Fish on the main drag had some great tacos.

This was another good trip. My daughter was dissapointed that it was so empty.

Any questions feel free to ask.

1. Re: Trip report Oct.3-7. Another great trip!

We started visiting Rocky Point in 1959, skipped visiting for a lot of years and just started going back again a few years ago. Although it has really been developed, the beaches are still wonderful and relatively uncrowded. However, even though we went last fall, stayed at one of the outer beaches and had a wonderful, peaceful time. the fairly recent violence in both Rocky Point and Sonoita has me a bit spooked. I feel sorry for the economy there, as restaurants and shopping areas were fairly deserted even last year at this time

How was it traveling the highway from Lukeville and was there more of a police oresence everywhere?

We did not see any police on the highway from the boarder down to Rocky Point. We only saw a couple police in Rocky Point doing their normal patrolling. It is sad to see the violence in other areas has scared away so many people from visiting.
