20+ bars/restaurants (seafood, Mexican, American, ice cream, coffee, etc.), 40+ stores (mostly gift shoppes, glassware, leather goods, LOTS of t-shirts), convenience store, gas station, fish markets. Tips: don't go during Easter Week because the entire town is jammed, the street(s) closed and many good restaurants are also closed. Parking is limited, so use the free parking to the right as... 更多
If you have never been to a fishing village before you are in for a treat. This place has lots of great restaurants and bars for an entertaining evening. The first thing you want to do is see all the variety of fresh fish the fishermen have brought back from their catch. The fisherman will weigh out whatever your desired... 更多
I have been visiting with family and friends to Penasco for about 9 years now. While it is a tourist destination if you get off the main road it still has some Mexico village feel. The Hotels along Sandy Beach are great. My preference has been The Sonoran Sun as all rooms are within a up close view and ear... 更多
Old port hustles and bustles with the fish market and shops and resteraunts. Noisy and crowded and thats the charm. Ill go back and have lunch or dinner.
Stopped here to shop and have breakfast, which was excellent. Everything from key chains to decor to fresh seafood was for sale here. Vendors can be a bit pushy so just be kind but firm, I didn't have a problem haggling. Lovely views of ocean and at night live music. Slower pace during week compared to weekends. FYI if not... 更多
We ate at several restaurants in the Old Port and liked every one. We ate at the upper floor restaurants along the water, above the fish markets and had amazing fresh fish and shrimp tacos. Vendors try to sell you stuff as you walk through the streets, but they leave you alone if you give them a polite, "No, gracias".
The shops in Old Port all seem to sell basically the same items, and, as typical in Mexico, nothing is priced, You need to negotiate for everything. Very interesting walking around.
There's not a whole lot to do in PP, ultimately we always find ourselves in Old Port walking around. The shopping is all the same souvenirs, horrendously overpriced sold by very pushy sales people. I understand these folks have families to feed but I wish they didn't push so hard, it's uncomfortable. On the plus side, we love the restaurants... 更多
Old Port was so fun! There was a ton of shopping to do and the exciting part was being able to talk with the locals and see how life is here for them. they sell really neat nick nacks so be sure to check it out!
You have to visit here (basically downtown) at least once while you're in Rocky Pt. It's the place for t-shirts and nightlfe although there are better "clubs" elsewhere. Pretty typical for a Mexican resort except for the fish markets. The real attraction is the central plaza with the statue honoring the Shrimpers who actually built the town. It's one of... 更多
We always have at least one meal in the old port. We aren't much for shopping but there is definitely a great variety of trinkets and clothes from mild to absurd to satisfy all tastes. Worth a little stroll and possible sit down to take in all the goings on.
A walk through Old Port is a must for first-time visitors, and a never-ending place to explore for repeat visitors as well. Shopping is mostly of the tourist / souvenir variety, with the exception of a shop or two carrying fine, higher-end jewelry and décor. Interspersed among the many shops are bars and eateries which -- after many years of... 更多
