I often hear this question asked, Do a lot of people travel to Rocky Point in the Winter months?  The answer I usually give is not near the amount in comparison to the busy months but that trend is slightly changing.  There are a few factors that deter people from coming down in the Winter months in my opinion, which I will touch on.  In contrast, and seemingly more interesting, is why are more people actually starting to make the trip to Rocky Point during the winter months?


From Paul T. (in Phoenix)

I was down there a few weeks ago and came across a new place that had pizza that was outstanding. Al Capone's pizza & beer. They have a bunch of flat screen TVs with all the American sports and easily the best pizza I have had in Mexico and better than most places in Arizona.

Pretty cool place, check it out!

Thousands of Arizonans who have purchased real estate in or frequently visit the booming vacation town of Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point), Mexico, experienced leftover turkey indigestion the Sunday after Thanksgiving when reading The Arizona Republic's front-page article about a disputed piece of land known as North Beach outside Puerto Peñasco ("Prime deal, prime debacle," Nov. 25).

DHS and the State of Arizona Partner to Further Advance Secure Identification Initiatives

Source: US Homeland Security Website

December 7, 2007 - The Department of Homeland Security and the state of Arizona signed an agreement for Arizona to create a new type of driver's license that will satisfy requirements of WHTI and be a basis for REAL ID, a key recommendation of the 9-11 Commission. Secretary Chertoff said, "Agreements like this one, and the others before it, move secure identification in the right direction, and I urge other states to do the same."

We will continue to research the new passport requirements throughout the year.  There is obviously much confusion.  In our return trip through the border last night, the officers at the border did not want to give a straight answer.  Our advice right now is to take a passport if you have one.  Now, if you don't have a passport, take a drivers license AND a birth certificate (If you don't know where your birth certificate is, contact your state of birth's vital statistics office by clicking here).  You could also take a drivers license and your voter registration card.  However, there is good news on the way.  We read this article in the Arizona Republic today....  Arizona could start issuing new driver's licenses with radio-identification chips next year that would be used in lieu of a passport at the U.S.-Mexican border.


The Department of Homeland Security issued a press release today reminding U.S. citizens crossing the border by land back into the U.S. that crossing rules are changing under WHTI as of January 31, 2008.  Border crossing guards will no longer rely on oral representation of citizenship and will instead require both a government issued photo I.D. (such as a drivers license) and proof of citizenship (such as a birth certificate).  If you already have a passport, it will obviously meet both of these requirements.

Bad weather affects tourism in Rocky Point.

Recent stormy weather has affected local businesses.  Some vendors experienced lower-than-usual sales this past weekend, most likely due to strong winds and rain. Many are hoping a return to sunny skies will mean more visitors and thus more business.


Thousands raced to the 7th Annual Motorcycle Rally in Rocky Point Nov. 8 to Nov. 11. 

The roar of motocycle engines revving up permeated the Rocky Point air Nov. 8 to 11. Thousands of bikers filled the streets of Rocky Point for one of the biggest parties of the year, rivaling Spring Break in terms of the volume of tourists. Even the locals joined the party,  seizing the opportunity to peddle their souvenirs and services.  The rally was a much needed boost to Rocky Point's ecomony, with many rally attendees booking hotel stays, enjoying the cuisine, and purchasing souvenirs.

Many people think Spring Breakers have the wildest time in Rocky Point, but countless bikers partying and exposing themselves Mardi Gras-style show otherwise.  Videos on Youtube and other Web sites atest to this as well. An impromptu street parade of Harley after Harley entertained tourists who snapped pictures of their favorite rides.

It wasn't all fun an games, with proceeds form the event going toward funding local charities. Everybody wins!


What was that?

Did you happen to read the article in the republic about the people who bought land in North Beach?  They seem to think that when someone does not due their research and purchases land, it applies to everyone who has ever bought land!!!
