If you go out west while looking for things to do at Puerto Penasco, beyond Sandy Beach to Bahia la Choya (Cholla Bay) at the end of the land, in that area you’ll find Xochitl’s Café. It’s far enough out of the way that you won’t need to worry about the usual swarm of tourists. It may look like a hole-in-the-wall by American standards, but once you notice the rooftop seating or step inside and see the brightly-decorated tables, you’ll realize a lot of love is poured into this place! Don’t worry if the name doesn’t fit right on your tongue—because the food surely will!
It can be a 20- to 30-minute drive to Xochitl’s from the center of Rocky Point, so unless you’re already in the Cholla Bay area looking for Puerto Penasco things to do, it’s best to visit some other attractions while you’re there, like the Tucson Beach, to make the most of the trip. From the rest of Rocky Point, take Calle F west as though you’re going to the sea, and then turn left on Calle G to find parking for the restaurant.
Mexican Food You’ll Miss When You’re Gone
Open for breakfast and lunch, Xochitl’s Café is the place to go if you want to enjoy a steaming hot plate of chile rellenos while looking over the bay. The service is hospitable, and the food is some of the best in the city. If you’re looking for that place you can keep coming back to, this could be it! If you aren’t sure what to get, just remember: when in Mexico, eat as the Mexicans do! Shy away from pancakes and sandwiches, and go for the tortilla soup, chilaquiles, and potato tacos.
Keep in mind, Xochitl’s closes at 3 on the days it is open, so you should put it earlier in your daily itinerary of Puerto Penasco things to do than later.
