Puerto Penasco 1PHOENIX — I spent New Year's in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico, aka Rocky Point. My family and I have been vacationing in Rocky Point for nearly four decades now. We started out camping in tents and small trailers on the beach.

Over the years we graduated to a camping area with utilities and showers, then to hotel rooms, and for the last several years we’ve been fortunate to stay at a family member’s home on the beach.

Throughout the years there have been colorful sunsets and a beautiful ocean views with one of the greatest tide differentials in North America.

The beauty and slow pace of Rocky Point was discovered by developers 10 or 15 years ago and the boom was on. Hotels, resorts and beachfront condos exploded out of the sand.
