“Fun in the HOTTT Sun.”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Stayed at a resort on Sandy Beach and our family enjoyed our selves very much in the warm waters without the jellyfish we had been warned about. had a blast on the banana boats that cost about $5 bucks per person. Would suggest on bringing a large umbrella/tent to protect your family from the sun or rent one for $25bucks your choice.

“The reason for the trip”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Playa Bonita Beach is also known as Sandy Beach. Super-wide and clean sand. They comb and clean it daily. A good time to walk down it is at low tide when the tidal pools are filled with little marine critters skittering around. The water is warm pool-like in the summer. A great time to get in is at night in late summer when the photo plankton light up all around you and you glow. Of course, it makes it easier for the sharks to see you, too. Nah, just kidding about that. No sharks, just a great experience.

“Gold Coast Shrimp - WOW!!!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Three words: Gold Coast Shrimp. Perfectly cooked bacon wrapped shrimp with a rich cheese sauce, vegetables, and rice.Decadent, oh yes! This is our favorite dish in Puerto Penasco, and Playa Bonita is our favorite place to order it. Yummy!

“fair beach with loads of people bothering you and junk for sale all at super high prices”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Not a great beach with loads of people bothering you and junk for sale all at super high prices... Not much for swimming since it is rocky and dirty. This is not the part of Mexico to see....

Easy drive from Arizona or Southern California, but by far the biggest scam city in Mexico for travelers.
