Once a sleepy fishing village on the shores of the Sea of Cortez, Puerto Penasco—also known as Rocky Point—has turned into a thriving coastal resort that's especially bustling when the spring break crowds arrive. Shimmy into your swimsuit and work on your tan at Sandy Beach, tee off in one of the golf courses, or sip a margarita while enjoying sunset views. Self-catering facilities in Puerto Penasco vacation rentals let you cook and enjoy the catch of the day. At night, put on your dancing shoes and take part in Puerto Penasco's vibrant nightlife.

Activities

Activities near Puerto Peñasco vacation homes

Have a big breakfast before leaving your Puerto Penasco vacation rental, because you'll need the fuel for the water activities available. There's sailing, windsurfing, and parasailing for the adrenaline junkies, or you can sign up for fishing, snorkeling, or dolphin- and whale-watching excursions. When the tide is low, Playa Mirador, the oldest developed beach in town, turns into a family-friendly attraction where little ones peer in the tide pools and discover mollusks, fishes, and aquatic plants. You'll be famished after all that seaside action, so duck into an al fresco restaurant for a fresh and scrumptious seafood meal.

Kayakers and bird-watchers are screaming for Morua

Just a 15-minute drive southeast of the city, the Morua Estuary is a birder's paradise. Kayak through the shallow aquamarine waters while keeping an eye out for some 140 species of endemic and migratory birds. You don't even have to look far and nigh, as there are lots of waders on the shore alone. Meanwhile, exploring El Pinacate Biosphere Reserve will make you feel like you're walking on the moon, because the combination of volcanic craters, cinder cones, and black rocks and soil are as close as it gets to a moonscape.
