When the sun goes down in Rocky Point there is a change of pace. Instead of the laid-back beach bum attitude, people get dressed up and ready to go dance and party at the clubs that surround the resort area. There are several clubs in Rocky Point, but I will share what I believe were the most fun and also most safe when I was there for Spring Break this March.
The first club I went to in Rocky Point was Changos. Changos is the most convenient club of them all because it is only a 2-minute walk from La Princesa, Sonoran Sea and Sonoran Sun and a very short drive from any other resort in the area. The music from Changos can be heard all along the beach and entices vacationers to come check out the fun. When I was there for Spring Break they had a massive stage set up outside with a DJ booth and a dance floor area. Everybody was always out there having a great time dancing with friends. When you wanted to get a drink you would walk inside to the bar and find a packed house. Waiting for a beer or a tequila shot was not a problem because you could make friends with the other people that were there also waiting. Prices at Changos are very reasonable with shots, beers, and mixed drinks ranging from $3-$8 depending on what you want to drink. The atmosphere in Changos is great and it is a family friendly environment. If you want to hang out in Changos, but not around all the craziness, simply walk over to the tables outside on the patio and enjoy the music from afar.
The next club that we went to in Rocky Point was Wrecked At The Reef. We went to The Reef for our friend’s birthday party and had a blast! As soon as we got there we went straight to the dance floor where there was a live band playing all kinds of great Spanish rock songs and covers. Wrecked has a very different set up than Changos. With couches and areas for people to lounge, it provides for a more laid back atmosphere than Changos (which isn’t a bad thing, just depends what you are looking for). There is also a great area outside where you can go enjoy the cool ocean breeze and escape the loud music. Walking to The Reef is not recommended, but definitely possible. I walked all the way from The Reef with a friend back to my resort, La Princesa, and it took me about an hour. I started walking along the beach I didn’t realize how long it was going to take me, but it was worth the gamble. Being out on the beach in the middle of the night when there is nobody around is a very cool experience and if you like walking I absolutely recommend making the journey.
Make sure to go check out these clubs and the nightlife in Rocky Point next time you are there for vacation and remember, never drink and drive! There are taxis all over the place, so make the smart choice and make sure you get home safe.
