Enjoy the water, the weather, and the heart of downtown Puerto Peñasco at el malecon!
When we arrived at our condominium where we were staying, we dropped off our things and began exploring the city. There is so much to do and see in Rocky Point that it felt like we hardly spent any time at our condo other than to sleep at night. We enjoyed a variety of awesome restaurants near downtown Puerto Peñasco and embraced local cuisine (my favorite new thing is paella--just saying!), caught a glimpse of the beauty of the shore from our sunset cruise around the harbor, and finally put some of our grade school Spanish to good use bartering for turquoise jewelry and authentic Mexican dresses at el malecon!
After spending a short week in Rocky Point, my favorite activity aside from enjoying the beach was exploring el malecon! There's so much to do, see, taste, and experience that I'm confident in saying you haven't truly been to Puerto Peñasco unless you've spent an hour or two exploring the boardwalk and shopping the local vendors.
The pier, otherwise known as "el malecon," is a vibrant part of the Rocky Point experience. There are so many ways to enjoy the culture--from trying local food at the vendor carts and restaurants lining the street, admiring the statues and learning about the history of Puerto Peñasco, and shopping at the many different kinds of kiosks and tents. We spent our entire morning walking up and down the pier, trying food and drinking coconut water and shopping, but I could have easily spent my entire day just at el malecon all by itself!
