The bay town of Puerto Peñasco (commonly known to Americans as Rocky Point) is a water lover’s paradise on the northern coast of Sonora, Mexico. For Mother’s Day enjoy a Rocky Point getaway, this small coastal town provides plenty of dining options and attractions to make her day special.
Mother’s Day Brunch
Of course, since brunch is one of the most popular gifts on Mother’s Day, some of the best options are located in the Puerto neighborhood, where seafood restaurants prepare the catch-of-the-day in rustic locales. In fact, take mom to enjoy some of the local delicacies like Caguamanta (manta ray filet) or the Coyota, a tortilla stuffed with cane sugar and guava then placed in the oven to create a perfectly crisp desert. After a brunch of cerveza and ceviche, don’t forget to take a stroll to the Fundadores Boardwalk for magnificent views of the bay and beyond.
Outdoor Rocky Point Adventures
Rocky Point is also known for its beaches, and if a picnic is on the Mother’s Day itinerary, then try the popular Playa Las Conchas with its soft sand and gentle waves or the more secluded Playa Mirador. The latter beach is located near the Cerro La Ballena (Whale Hill) where it provides the most picturesque 360-degree views in town.
For those who are seeking Rocky Point adventures, the area is known as a destination for outdoor activities in the air, on land and over the sea. One of the most memorable experiences for any traveler is a visit to the Gran Desierto de Altar, a vast desert area about 32-miles (52km) northeast of Rocky Point. The long trek into the desert away from the cool beach rewards everyone with a topography unlike anywhere else on the planet.
To get out on the water, rent a charter boat and sail into the bay in search of sun and sand on the Isla San Jorge. On the way to this rocky, secluded island also located 32 miles (52km) away from Rocky Point, visitors will oftentimes get the chance to spot dolphins and whales diving alongside the boat.
Back on land, take mom on a more personal, guided ATV tour through some of Rocky Point’s most impressive attractions such as its beaches and deserts. From the air, thrill-seeking moms will love the ultra-light gliders that provide the gift of flight with unparalleled views of Earth below.
