When visiting Rocky Point Mexico, bring your walking shoes along with your bathing suit and sunscreen. While this community is known for its great beaches, world class fishing and diving, there are a number of great places to explore and check out while on land.

Situated in the heart of Puerto Penasco, this old time fish market has received a face lift and is now a modern and bustling marketplace complete with restaurants, bars and souvenir shops. Here you can experience the thrill of price haggling, buying fresh fish, or just strolling through a small, clean and safe Mexican fishing community.
The Sea of Cortez is full of fish, and the warm and tranquil waters attracts species from the world over. Some of the best fishing can be found in Rocky Point, and some of the best fish for sale are located in the Malecon. Whether or not you are looking for fresh shrimp, grouper, tuna, lobster or a wide array of other delectable and tasty seafood choices, shopping the market will not leave you disappointed.
In addition to fresh seafood, there are tons of other food choices to explore as you walk up and down the Malecon.

No matter what you have a taste for, you can find it in this amazing part of town.
For those who are interested in a little nightlife, the quiet community of Rocky Point has its share of places to go dance, hang out with friends, or swap stories with local as well as expat fisherman and water lovers.
Things wind down early in this neck of the woods, and late night reveling usually ends around 11pm, so go early and have a good time without sacrificing your daytime exploring.
Aside from great food and nightlife, the Malecon is also a marketplace where you can find anything from clocks to statues to clothes and hand crafted rugs and shawls. Prices are far below what you would pay retail for, and most vendors will welcome price negotiation and some good bargain hunting.
While Mexico has gotten a lot of bad press for crime in the last couple of years, Rocky Point is safe, clean and comfortable. There are two tourist police stations nearby, and they are staffed with English speaking officials. It is safe, accessible and a wonderful way to spend your next vacation. Not to mention, Puerto Penasco is full of Americans, which makes it a great place to visit because you are never far away from home.
