This City is also called Puerto Penasco and is referred to as "Arizona's Beach". It’s a convenient 3 and half hours of road trip from Tucson or Phoenix, Arizona. There are numerous shuttles buses & coaches and car rentals that one can avail of. Every year, thousands of Arizonans enjoy relaxing on the beach and fresh seafood like fish and shrimps.

Over last few years, Rocky Point has become a well known resort destination very popular with tourists from USA. In fact, people more often than not fall in love with Rocky Point the first time they visit it and end up buying a second home there.

It is also a popular Spring Break destination with students from Arizona, Mexico, and California. Puerto Peñasco is located in the 'free zone' where tourists are not required to obtain immigration papers in order to visit (however, U.S. border agents advise that as of January 2008 a passport will be required to re-enter the United States).

Puerto Peñasco has two main beach areas. To the west of the Old Port area, there is a wide, flat area known as Sandy Beach. This is the home to several large hotel/resorts, and more are under construction. East of town, there is a long coast with several areas known in parts as La Mirador, Playa del Oro and then Las Conchas, an area of beachfront and near-beach condos, homes and timeshares.

The area features wide variations between high and low tides. With the shallowly sloping sea bed, this can lead to dramatic changes in the waterline twice a day. At the eastern beaches, this reveals a rocky reef with abundant sea life.

Old Port has a variety of shopping and dining, from roadside taco stands to restaurant-style dining, from an Italian bistro to rooftop seafood. There are stalls with souveniers and traditional items, as well as artist shops.
