Exploring Arizona's Beach, Rocky Point Mexico

April 27, 2017

I will be heading back to the sandy shores of Mexico for a few nights.  Brent and I met in Rocky Point on trip with some mutual friends.  We haven't been down there since adding kids to our family.  It holds a special place in our hearts.  The picture above is from one of our last trips there.  With Summer Vacations coming quickly I'm going to check out Rocky Point for you and post reviews, photos and fun things to do while you're there!

We will be staying at the Princessa de Penasco which looks absolutely beautiful with lots of fun for the whole family. Water slides into the pools and even a lazy river (which I can't wait to float along). I will be posting many photos you can watch for the hastags #ArizonasBeach #ArizonasBeachEastMesaMacaroniKid to follow along, I will even find something awesome to giveaway when I come back home!

Feel free to ask any questions you have along the way and I will try to answer them all! For those of you wondering about Passports to head over to Rocky Point, I hear they are not extremely strict if you bring your Birth Certificate and a Photo ID. We will only have Birth Certificates and Photo ID, I will let you know how that goes!  Hopefully we've been corrrectly informed or else I might become the new Rocky Point Macaroni Kid Publisher.

Here are some fun facts about Rocky Point:

  • What was once an up-and-coming fishermen’s town in the 1960’s, Rocky Point has grown to be one of Northern Mexico’s prime tourism destinations.
  • In the last year alone thanks to its safe and credible reputation, more than 1.1 million tourists from Arizona vacationed in Rocky Point.
  • Rocky Point is within close proximity to Phoenix and Tucson with a short three and half hour drive away.
  • In 2016 Rocky Point was named as Sonora’s cleanest beach, making it the largest certified clean beach in the country and a first for a Sonoran city to receive this significant recognition.
  • Due to Rocky Point's unique geographical location it is known as one of Sonora’s best zones for deep sea fishing.
  • Many restaurants serve the local favorite “Blue Shrimp”, a unique type of shrimp recognized around the world for its exceptional flavor.
