I’m pretty sure the title alone is all you’ll need to imagine the fun and relaxation we experienced while in Mexico. I’ll give you a minute to let it soak in…. I know, right?
We experienced Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point) for the first time last summer. You can read about it here. It is in the state of Sonora, Mexico four hours from Phoenix, Arizona. The best part is we can drive there. We are fortunate to have family in Phoenix so we like to stop there and enjoy spending time with them as well as take a break from the drive. Also, the next morning it doesn’t seem as hard to be in the car so long.
Last year we rented a house right on the beach and this year we went to a different resort. We stayed at Las Palmas Beach & Golf Resort. It was amazing!!
Our “apartment” had two bedrooms and all the commodities of home. We were able to save tons of money by cooking ourselves. Our room overlooked the pools and the beach. It had six pools! My kids were out there as soon as it opened and only took breaks for lunch and dinner. The ocean was so warm too.
We took a day to go exploring (shopping) and ride 4-wheelers:
We went out to the pier as well and it is popping on the weekends!
Who else remembers eating Thrifty ice cream in their childhood?
While there, my husband and I celebrated our 22nd Wedding Anniversary! What? I am one lucky woman!
We highly recommend visiting Puerto Peñasco on your next vacation. The city is quiet and you feel safe all hours of the day.
Thanks for stopping by!
