The winter is too cold, the summer is too hot, and the spring is too crowded. That makes fall the perfect season to enjoy a Puerto Penasco vacation! Visit in the fall to experience the best of what the town has to offer. The busy season in Rocky Point is typically the spring and summer seasons. This means you can avoid the height of tourist season by visiting a little later in the year. However, there are still plenty of fun activities and local events to experience to make your vacation fun and memorable. When the weather starts to cool down, head south and enjoy a fall Puerto Penasco vacation by the beach!
Located in the Sonoran Desert, Rocky Point experiences dry and hot weather throughout most of the year. In the fall, temperatures are usually more mild for the region, but are still warm. Expect temperatures between 80 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The Sea of Cortez, off the shore of Rocky Point, stays warm enough during this time of year to swim, but also cool enough to be a relief from the warm sun. The water averages a temperature of 75 degrees Fahrenheit during this season. Enjoy perfect temperatures this time of year both in and out of the water!
Día de Los Muertos
The fall season is when locals gather for some unique events in the town! As October transitions to November, head to Rocky Point to experience the Day of the Dead festival, known in Spanish as Día de Los Muertos. This celebration is similar to the American holiday of Halloween, as they take place around the same time of year, but with some notable differences. People do dress up during this holiday, however they typically wear traditional Mexican garb and paint their faces as skulls, rather than wear a variety of costumes. The celebration revolves around honoring the memory of friends and family members who have passed, often through elaborately decorated shrines that highlight their favorite foods, drinks, and hobbies. Typically, locals and tourists alike gather in Cholla Bay Mall to celebrate this holiday.
Rocky Point Rally
Another popular annual event in Rocky Point is the annual Rocky Point Rally. Known as the “greatest motorcycle fiesta south of the border,” the Rocky Point Rally is four days of motorcycles, food, and fun! Even if you are not a motorcycle lover, this festival is full of fun activities such as a beach party, poker tournament, and toy drive to benefit charity. It is certainly a must see if you find yourself on a Puerto Penasco vacation during the fall season!
