Why Rocky Point?

A romantic vacation in Puerto Penasco combines the best of a beach vacation with the intimate feel of escaping to a small town.

The beauty of Rocky Point is even better alongside the person you love!

Beachside Romance

For the true eco-tourist experience, rent a kayak and explore the waters, or even book a guided hike through the Pinacate Biosphere Reserve!
