Here is a page we thought would be a helpful tool to "navigate"

around the beautiful town of Rocky Point, Mexico.

Every now and then, you may find yourself off the main road

and onto a side street that you have never seen before.

It has happened to all of us at one time I imagine.

DON'T PANIC!!

YOUR STILL IN ROCKY POINT.

You just have to find your "bearings" again.

We hope this page may help you do just that!

Think of this as your "Personal Virtual Tour".

"My first trip to Rocky Point was at night, and I had no

idea where I was until the next morning." (Shea Peil)

Then things started to look familiar and I actually

knew where I was, and how easy it is to find my way around.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let's start our trip in Ajo, Arizona.

Arizona Highway 85 is the main route to the Lukeville border,

once you are out of the Phoenix area.

From Tucson, you take Highway 86 until it

meets up with Az 85 in Why, Arizona.

 Arizona 85 runs right through Gila Bend, Ajo and Why.

We get our auto insurance at the Ajo Insurance Service.

The Ajo Insurance Service Office is located next

to the Chevron, on the main road, Az #85.

             Rocky Point Streets

From Ajo, it's about 45 minutes to the Lukeville border.

The next town you pass through is Why, Arizona,

about 10 minutes after Ajo.

Now, if you are traveling from Tucson, you would take

State Route 86 to Why. Then take the Az 85 to the border.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here is the border crossing at Lukeville, Arizona.

Rocky Point is 63 miles once you cross the border,

so fill up the gas tank and be on your way.

             Rocky Point Streets Rocky Point Streets

 These photos are from the Lukeville gas station,

looking at the Us/Mexico Border.

Photo on the left shows border crossing.

Photo on the right shows several stores,

including one store that sells Cologne, Perfume and Alcohol.

 

             Rocky Point Streets

Here we are, heading back to the US.

 

If you get the Red Light at the border going into Mexico,

here is where you pull over.

             Rocky Point Streets

If you get the Green light, you have passed customs.

Now, you are 63 miles from Rocky Point,

so please Drive Safe and have fun.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Once you cross the border, you are in Sonoita

(usually spelled incorrect: Sonoyta)

             Rocky Point Streets

You want to follow the signs that say:

Peuerto Penasco or Pto. Penasco.

This is the Mexican name for Rocky Point.

The road that leads to Rocky Point is Mexico Highway #8. 

We took this photo (above) from up on a hill, next to a restaurant

called "Wendys". This was Thanksgiving Weekend 2005.

This photo shows us looking into Mexico.

This road will begin to slant to the right after a few minutes,

then you will see a Circle K on your right,

then up to the first stop sign. Turn left.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

Soon after that, you pass over a small bridge,

then, the road begins to slant to the right again.

Right side has shops, taco vendors, ect.

Left side has a small, sunk-in park.

Follow the slant to the right; your now on Hwy #8.

This photos is from left to right:

(meaning: you should be heading the same direction as the car in photo)

             Rocky Point Streets

 

Pit Stop: On your left is a store called Vasquez.

Vasquez has over 200 types of Tequila.

One of our favorites is the TeqiPal (probably spelled wrong),

which comes in Strawberry, Mango, Coco and Cafe.

             Rocky Point Streets 

Rocky Point Streets

             Rocky Point StreetsRocky Point Streets

 

All stocked up on supplies, so lets hit the road again.

             Rocky Point Streets

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, lets fast forward 62 miles to Rocky Point.

Now remember, you are still on Mexico Hwy #8.

This is the main road all the way to Rocky Point,

and it takes you all the way through town.

FACT

If you stay on Hwy #8 the entire time,

and do not turn left or right onto any street,

you will end up looping right back to where you started.

* Makes it hard to get lost, doesn't it *

Highway #8 is Benito Juarez Blvd once you enter Rocky Point.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For those of you who have a reservation at the beach front condos

Princesa, Sonoran Spa, Sonoran Sea, Las Palmas, Bella Sirena,

Sonoran Sun, and the Casa Blanca Villas,

you want to look for this sign when you enter town.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

Turn right at the light, then follow this road.

It is paved the entire way, so "no worries".

In fact, you will see a Circle K on your right, a few minutes

after you drive over the train tracks.

             Rocky Point StreetsRocky Point Streets

 

After the Circle K, you will continue driving for a few minutes,

then come to a place where the paved road meets

a dirt road, here at these Arches.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

Now, go straight thru the arches to find the condos we mentioned earlier.

You can use this paved road to get back and forth to Benito Juarez Blvd.,

which you can take to town, if you so chose.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, back to Benito Juarez Blvd (BJB).

Here are 2 photos we took standing at Tacos Luis taco stand.

Tacos Luis is on the corner of Av. Costitucion, on the main road, BJB.

             Rocky Point Streets

             Rocky Point Streets

 

If you turned right (here) on Av. Constitucion,

it would take you to the grocery store called Super Ley.

                                 Rocky Point Streets

 

You will pass the Hotel Paraiso del Desierto on the way.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

Super Ley grocery is about a minute drive after pass the hotel.

             Rocky Point Streets

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Alright, back to the main road, BJB.

The next major street light you want to look for has a

pedestrian overpass, along with a bunch of the green

street signs, (like on a freeway, but smaller).

This photo is from the other side, looking back at the street signs.

             Rocky Point Streets

Each sign reflects the names & locations of many of the hotels in town.

If you turn right, you would drive over the train tracks.

Now, you are heading toward the Sandy Beach area.

This road is called Calle 13.

You can find a bunch of shops and taco stands on both sides of the road.

Calle 13 will take you to the Penasco Del Sol hotel, Pinacate condos,

and the Playa Bonita and Laos Mar hotel, on a separate road.

 

Here we are on Calle 13, looking back toward the main road

we just turned off, which was Hwy #8, BJB.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

Here, we are standing across from Keno's Store on Calle 13.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

Here we are looking at the Penasco Del Sol

(old Plaza Las Glorias)

             Rocky Point Streets

Now, lets go back to Keno's store for a moment

(photo above this one).

 

On the corner where Keno's is located, you will notice a

dirt road that leads to one dock area and the Navy Yard.

This road will take you to Lobo Del Mar office (on your left).

             Rocky Point Streets

 

Or, if you want to enjoy the Sunset Cruise on the Rey Del Mar,

continue driving passed Santioago's,  to the Rey Del Mar office.

It is right nest door to Balboas Restaurant.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

On the other side of the street from Keno's,

you will notice a wooden sign that says:

To Playa Bonita and Laos Mar hotels.

This photo is looking back toward that corner with the sign,

right across from Keno's.

             Rocky Point Streets

This dirt road will take you to the Playa Bonita and Laos Mar hotels.

 

Keep driving passed the Quad and Golf Cart rentals -

             Rocky Point Streets

 until you get to the 4 way intersection. Turn left.

 

Now, after you turn left, follow this road for a minute

 as it will start to curve to the right, then it will take you to the left.

Soon after you pass this store (below)

             Rocky Point Streets

Continue on this road to the security gate, then to the

Laos Mar (on the right), or the Playa Bonita (on your left, beach front)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Special Note: On the corner, where that small store is located,

their is a short dirt road that leads to a New Paved Road

that can take you all the way to the Beach front condos mentioned earlier.

             Rocky Point StreetsRocky Point Streets

Once on this dirt road, you would drive about 2 minutes

until you see the new paved road that connect you to the

beach front condos on Sandy Beach. Once you reach pavement, turn left.

 

This view is looking back toward the dirt road behind Laos Mar.

Las Palomas would be on the left.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

This view is from Las Palomas, looking at the New Road.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

You would pass Las Palomas first (on your left),

 and the Las Palomas Golf Links

(under construction, on the left & right)

             Rocky Point Streets

This new road ends at the 2 lane paved road with all the large palm trees.

This is the road to the condos, after you passed thru the Arches.

If you take a left, it goes to the condos

Casa Blanca, Princesa, Sonoran Spa, Sonoran Sea,

Las Palmas, Bella Sirena and the Sonoran Sun.

 

If you turn right, and stay on the paved road,

it takes you back to the main road, Hwy #8.

Then you would turn right to drive back to

town on Benito Juarez Blvd..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, back to the paved road, where these arches are located,

you will notice a connecting dirt road on both sides.

             Rocky Point Streets

One direction (North-East) would take you to the Reef Club,

Cholla Bay and JJ's Cantina.

The other direction (South-West) would take you to Rodeo Drive,

and eventually back to town, depending on your route.

 

Here we are on the Cholla Bay road, as it's called,

looking back toward the arches (photo above)

             Rocky Point Streets

 

Here are 2 photos taken on Rodeo Drive,

which is connected to the Cholla Bay rd.

These are some of the shops you pass along the way.

             Rocky Point Streets Rocky Point Streets

If you stay on this dirt road and go over the train tracks,

it will take you back to the main road, BJB.

 

Or, if you want to take a short cut, turn right at the

end of the shops, (just before the train tracks)

and this road will take you back to Calle 13.

             Rocky Point Streets

It's dirt part of the way, then the rest is paved up to

the light on Calle 13.

You pass the "Whale House", as I call it, on your right.

This road is partially paved to the next stop sign now (June 2006)

             Rocky Point Streets

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, you are at the light on Calle 13.

You have 3 choices at this point.

Turn right to go back to the Penasco Del Sol & Pinacate.

Turn left to go back to Benito Juarez Blvd.

Or, you can go straight through the light and

connect with BJB, as it curves toward the

Fish and Shrimp Market on the Malecon.

The road, straight, is called Calle Luis Encinas (CLE).

This photo was taken on CLE, looking back toward Calle 13.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

This photo is looking toward JBJ, right where the Anchor is.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

The road to the left of the Anchor is where you would

be coming from on Calle Luis Encinas.

             Rocky Point Streets

If you want to enjoy the Fish Market and Malecon,

turn right (left side of anchor)

 

Now, you are driving to the Fish Market and Malecon area.

On the way, you will pass a drive-thru liquor store on your left.

This road will also take you passed the Sun N Fun Dive Shop

(on the right side of the road)

             Rocky Point Streets

 

Important Fact: After the Dive Shop, it becomes a 1-Way road.

On the right, you will find a bunch of Fishing Boat Captains

trying to fill their boats with fishermen.

If you want to do a bit of fishing that day, pull over and begin negotiations.

Now, this one way road is going to take you to the Fish and Shrimp

Market, located on the Malecon.

We will take you frame by frame right through the Malecon,

starting on the first corner you will see.

 

This is the corner where the Fish Market begins.

taking you right past the Vina Del Mar.

             Rocky Point Streets

 

Here is a road (below) called Paseo Victor Estrella (PVE),

just passed the Vina Del Mar.

             Rocky Point Streets

Point of Interest: On this corner, where the Park is, their is a street

(going away from the Malecon)

that leads to the best coffee house in Rocky Point,

Santana's Coffee Casa.

Here are the choices. If you kept going forward (no turn),

it connects with the BJB, just before the beginning of the Malecon.

You have to drive thru the Malecon again, and start over.

 

If you want to drive back to town,

you want to turn right on this corner, onto Ignacio Ruiz Blvd.

Okay, lets head back to where the Anchor is on BJB.

The photo (below) shows the direction you would be driving.

If you want to drive to the Baja Hotel, Manny's Beach Club,
