Top five reasons to come visit Rocky Point
1. Visiting Old Port and the malecon
This is where to buy fresh jumbo shrimp and other fresh seafood. The Old Port includes the Malecon, the popular seaside boardwalk with restaurants, bars and cute souvenirs shops.
Some visitors find one trip into town to be enough. But, others love the atmosphere and return frequently. And, taxis are inexpensive, if you tell them you know that prices are “much less than that.” Taxis are recommended if you plan to bar hop and you don’t have a designated driver.
2. Things are cheaper in Mexico
A typical two-hour sunset cruise, which offers an open bar, costs about $25 per person. And, a massage on the beach is about $20. If fishing and other boat activities are on your list, keep an eye on the weather because high winds will close the port.
3. Great food
There are two types of food that you’ll find in Rocky Point: Street food and restaurant food. The street food is great, but varies in flavor and quality. So look for the ones with many people.
4. Low tide is something to savor
The Sea of Cortez around Rocky Point has the 2nd lowest tide in the world. That means the sea goes very far out, which is great for beach combing. Walkers, runners and shell-seekers enjoy a wide swath of flat sand to explore.
5. The people
Rocky Point has a wonderful local population. The people are very friendly and helpful, if you’re ever in need of assistance. And, many residents of Rocky Point speak English. You will find many deportees in Rocky Point, who speak perfect English, but we cautious of them. There’s usually a reason for their deportation, like drugs and theft. Just FYI…
