Oh, the weather outside is frightful, and the fire is so delightful, and since we have no place to go let it snow, let it snow, let it snow … Wait, put the brakes on and redo that song for Southern Arizona and Puerto Penasco, Mexico, Oh the weather outside is frightfully beautiful….and the sunshine is so delightful, and since we love the beach so…, go to mexico, go to mexico, go to mexico.

Ok, yes better songwriters are out there. However, with the weather so outstanding what better time is there to go to the beach and visit the Sea of Cortez in Puerto Penasco. It is the holiday season and for those who live in the southwest this is the perfect time to put your toes in the sand and get on the phone and call your loved ones back east or anywhere across the country where there is snow. If you have never tried this experiment, there is some deep inner satisfaction in calling those you love in the snow from the beach and describe in detail the sparkling ocean, blue skies and 75 degree weather. I know it’s mean but it does feel good. Just 3.5 hours from Phoenix or Tucson the sand is warm and the soothing clear water is full of diamonds calling your name.

Still hung up on the whole safety thing, worried the sleepy quite little fishing village is more unsafe than your hometown? Well, take it from those who go weekend after weekend to Rocky Point and check it out for yourself.

Visiting Rocky Point, Mexico is for those who want to take a nice easy safe road trip to the beach and experience friendly folks just waiting to welcome you to their town. Try it out .  Everyone who visits, ends up trying to figure out where all the rumors come from? Everyone is so nice, the border crossing is very simple and the town is looking for visitors. Smokin hot escape packages exist at hotel and condominiums on the beach. New Years Eve is a great time with live music and special deals. Check out for winter deals in fully furnished beach front condominiums. Check out for deals at the golf resort on Sandy Beach.
