It’s been a rough few months for everyone, and now that travel restrictions are lifting, it is definitely the time for a trip south of the border. To be more specific, you need to get away to Rocky Point and a stay in one of our FMI Rentals spicy vacation escapes! Offering a warmth and welcoming that will be a boon to frazzled nerves, your Rocky Point vacation also offers the opportunity to continue the social distancing you have become accustomed to this year. This guide to some of the more isolated activities in Rocky Point you can take part in during your stay will be the perfect way to fill every moment of your much-needed getaway with happiness, excitement, and fun!
Under the Sea
Sometimes the best way to get away from the crowds is to go under—under the sea, that is—where you will face a world filled with color and beauty. Snorkeling is a popular Mexican activity that doesn’t require a lot of expensive equipment or extensive experience; simply rent your snorkel, mask, and a pair of flippers and point yourself in the direction of the waters! There are tours that will take you to some of the more secluded spots, including Bird Island, but that involves extra people you may not want to get that close to. For those who don’t mind, Eco Fun Rentals and Del Mar Charters are well known for their knowledge of the area, and if you feel like a tour of Bird Island where a huge variety of birds can be seen, CEDO Intercultural Center is known for their eco tours and snorkeling guides.
Take a Hike With These Activities in Rocky Point
It may be difficult to believe until you see, but the sand dunes located just outside Puerto Peñasco will make you feel like you are stranded in the desert even as the water is within sniffing distance! Fill a backpack with snacks and water and spend the day exploring the largest sand dunes field in North America. The sights and sounds that surround you will be unlike any you have experienced before! Many visitors are a little unsure of exploring on their own in a foreign land, which is entirely understandable. If this is one of your fears, CEDO once more comes to the rescue with a guided tour costing about $50 per person. Lasting about 6 hours, the cost includes admission into the Biosphere Reserve, lunch, binoculars, and a fascinating desert experience!
It’s for the Birds
Mexico is a haven for flora and fauna you’ve likely never encountered before, and Morua Estuary, just outside of Rocky Point, is a bird watcher’s utopia! Home to over 140 species of birds (11 of these species are protected), keeping track of the ones you see is easy when you download a bird watching app! Kayak through the wetlands, binoculars in hand, is a once in a lifetime experience you will wish you had tried sooner, and if you are wishing you knew more about these fragile creatures, wish no more! CEDO also offers a guided estuary kayaking tour that will take up about 5 hours.
Horseback Rides at Sunrise
Horseback riding on the beach is one of the more romantic activities to try, especially at sunset, but there are often groups of people doing the same thing, which defeats the purpose of discovering isolated activities. If you choose a sunrise adventure, however, the chances of having the beach to yourself rises significantly. Who likes to get up at dawn while on vacation? If this sounds like something you would enjoy, El Establo Ranch, located at Plutarco Elias Calles 196, is one company that offers a safe, exciting, and romantic trip along the shores of the Sea of Cortes.
Isolated and Secluded
It’s true that our FMI Rentals vacation properties are located in the center of everything that makes Rocky Point special, but if you take at least one day to stay in, you’ll be avoiding a world that can be too crowded and still have a lot of fun! Some of our luxury homes comes with private pools, so instead of heading to the beach where all the people are, put on your favorite swimwear and relax by the crystal clear waters of your own private pool! Simmer in the bubbles of a hot tub, grill the catch of the week and enjoy fresh fish tacos al fresco, or sip on margaritas at sunset on a patio overlooking the sea. Vacations are about rest and relaxation and all the siestas you care to take when traveling to Mexico, and our properties are designed to make it easy. Reserve yours today!
