How about a sunset boat trip?  Enjoy the cool ocean breezes while watching the sun go down.    The most amazing sunsets happen over the Sea of Cortez, overlooking the Baja.   We recommend our friends at Delmar charters, they have a fabulous sailboat, the Tempo, that is relaxing and comfortable, great way to end the day.

 Having too much fun to limit yourself to just a weekend here and there?   We would be happy to help you find the perfect condo or beach home to own.   You can even rent it out when you can't be in Mexico, making some money to help with expenses, and saving that getaway for retirement.    Prices are still low, even some foreclosures still available.   Prices are moving up, so hurry!

A Look Back at Rocky Point



Located about 60 miles south of the Arizona boarder is Rocky Point, a sanctuary for several, and a beach paradise to most. Looking back, it hasn’t always been this way. Actually, only a few decades ago, it was a beach primarily filled with tents, camps and RVs. And if we go back further, civilization was non-existent and only traversed by ambitious fisherman in search of a mythical fish known as Totoaba which was thought to have magical healing powers.It Began as a Fishing Village


Lt. Robert William Hardy of the British Navy explored the coast of rocky point hoping to find pearls and precious metals. But although he found no metallic treasure, he discovered an ocean teaming with fish. Since then, fisherman flocked to Rocky Point. The Genesis of Modern Rocky Point It may surprise some to learn that Al Capone was one of the first entrepreneurs to visit the shores of Rocky Point. He constructed a casino and resort which he actually owned a penthouse at. It was fabled to flow with booze and broads during the prohibition years, and it was even lauded as the el dorado of speak easies. But tensions grew between Capone and the Mexican government and his Casino crumbled to the ground. Standing Tall Today. But Relations between the US and Mexico have evened out since then, and companies like Realty Executives have constructed beautiful resorts for tourists in the Southwest to flock to and enjoy the beach. If you like fun, sun, dancing, and beautiful beaches and people, then do yourself a favor and get down here

Fiesta in Rocky Point (part 2 of 2)

When in Rome, do as the Romans do. And when in Mexico, fiesta! There is more fun to be had here then you could possibly handle. What’s more, you can do it cheaply. So next time you think about heading to Vegas to give your cash away, perhaps think again. Perhaps think about Rocky Point. And if you’re wondering what to do, here are a few tips for excitement.

Tequila, Cervesa, and Margaritas

If you like your cocktails, and you’ve completed the song 99 bottles of beer on the wall in full, then Mexico is probably the right place for you. Come here with a few pesos in your pocket and be assured that you will have your fill my friend. Although our clubs are lauded for excitement and beautiful people (which will be mentioned below), a good place to start is the local resorts. Most of our properties, like Sonora Sun, Sonora Sea, Las Palmas, will have swim up bar where margaritas and coolattas will flow like a river. Also, any of the local grocery stores will sell Cervesa for a fraction of American beer prices.

Bars and Clubs

There can be no doubt that Rocky Point boasts some of the finest cantinas and clubs in the Southwest. If you’re looking for a bit of romance and some dancing with beautiful people, then Wrecked at the Reef comes highly recommended. A live band rocks out around the clock, as people have a chance to have fun and be sexy. JJ Cantina is also another beautiful destination for partying on vacation. It is a bit more family oriented so feel free to bring the kids for some good food, fab fun, and a few margaritas to dance the night away. 

Fiesta in Rocky Point (part 1 of 2)

When in Rocky Point, there is no shortage of activities to partake in. Whether you’re a beach person, an outdoor enthusiast, a lover of relaxation, a connoisseur of cuisines, or a wild party animal, Rocky Point has you covered.  Below are a few suggestions for enjoying the sweet sandy beaches of Rocky Point Mexico.

Hit the Beach

The beach is one of the most beautiful features of Rocky Point. In fact, the beach lead to the genesis of Rocky Point Mexico as the hotspot for vacation goers in the Southwest.  Before company’s like Realty Executives flocked to the beaches to build beautiful resorts, people would just camp out and enjoy the sand, the waves, and each other’s company. But now, everyone and their brother knows about Rocky Point, and as a result, people naturally flock to the sandy beaches to make a quick buck in the service industry. There are several opportunities to rent jet skis, paddle boards, ride sailboats, banana boats, parasail, or catch some fish. The possibilities are endless, and we encourage everyone to partake in breathtaking beach life.

Ride the Sand

Although there is no waves in Rocky Point, it is teaming with the crests of sandy hills that can be traversed on ATVs. All over the beach and the areas surrounding central Rocky Point will offer ATVs for rent. Also, if you looking to dive into the dunes, then consider taking the trip on horseback. There is also no shortage of equestrian joy available in Rocky Point.

Sit upon on the Lap of Luxury

Teeming all around the beautiful beaches of Puerto Penasco are luxury condos available for purchase or rent. Come enjoy the surf, waves, sun and fun with our family here at Realty Executives.

Rocky Point Survival Kit

Turning the car south and heading down to Mexico is a rite of passage in everyman’s life. The cool wind in your hair, the rapidly approaching scent of the beach, and the sounds of fiesta in the distance are the sirens call of the nymph that is Rocky Point. But like Odysseus having his men tie him to the mast head to survive the fatal calls of the sirens, there are some precautions one must take before heading down to Rocky Point. At Realty Executives, we are happy to be your oracle before embarking for the seas of Puerto Penasco.

Mexican Insurance

It's now required to purchase Mexican auto insurance to enter Mexico. As you approach closer and closer to the boarder, Mexican insurance dealers will be ubiquitous. Most policies last for 180 days, and will cover you on collusion and protect you against a wrongful death lawsuit. Either way, if you get pulled over by the Policia de Federales, it’s one more layer of protection.

Passport and Identification

This is key to a successful Mexico trip. Just like Odysseus who made it all the way home from Ithaca, only to fall asleep while his men released the winds of Aeolus, thus destroying the boat and setting the hero back ten years from returning home, so it is the same while being held up at the boarder after a successful Mexico trip. Nothing could be worse than having the time of your life, only to have your trip ruined inches away from the boarder. A passport and second form of photo ID is the surest protection against this unfortunate event.

Be Reasonable

This is the most important advice. Don’t act like a Barbosa or a carbon. Mexico is yours for the taking but acting like an imbecile will ruin your trip and it could be potentially dangerous. Use your head or don’t come down here.

Oyster Farm Tour

If you’re seeking a respite from the party scene in Rocky Point, we suggest a trip to the Oyster Farms of Puerto Penasco, Mexico. Oysters are brought in fresh from the bay, cleaned, and then prepared for visitors. You can hire a qualified tour guide to escort you around the Oyster Farm, and provide some interesting facts about bivalves. Moreover, the oyster farm has an excellent dining area equipped with a bar that serves cheap tequila. This of course will rope you back in to Rocky Point’s party scene which is not the worst the thing in the world.

Bivalves refers to the class in which oysters are subjugated. Bivalves are comprised of laterally compressed bodies enclosed by shells consisting of two hinged parts. The word comes from the Latin bis (two) and valvae (door). Under the genus bivalve are the species clams, oysters, cockles, muscles and scallops. These simple facts will all be included while touring the oyster farm. But more importantly, every tour includes access to fresh oysters. And, if you find a pearl you can keep it. Let us add that you can keep the shells of the oysters. Why? One might ask. Well, oysters can be used to make jewelry. It was said that Achilles’ mother gave him an oyster necklace before he pushed off to sack Troy and make history.

When consuming oysters, we recommend a splash of hot sauce, even though oysters could easily be consumed without a garnish or spice. For those oyster virgins out there, the tour includes a tutorial for preparing oysters, cleaning them, and eating them. Expect the visit to take up half a day. Booze is also available on the tour of Puerto Penasco’s Oyster Farm, which will no doubt bring out the best in the oysters, both in taste and the nourishment of the libido. 

Mountain Biking in Mexico

In Rocky Point, there are no bike lanes. But there is however, an abundance of mountain biking trails that weave through the southern Rockies.  Mountain biking is an excellent activity to relieve stress and promote mental wellness, and Rocky Point, Mexico, is the place to do it.

The Batamote Mountain yields particularly satisfying biking trails. The wide open mountain range and hot Mexican sun are the perfect companions for exercise. The ten mile trail crosses the Sonoyta River in vibrant fashion as cyclist rapidly peddle their bikes over its dusty surface. One can embark on the adventure alone or hire a guide for safety. Expect to pay a 56 pesos (5 dollars) entry fee in order to enter the state park in which the trail is located.

When embarking on a mountain bike adventure in Mexico, it is important to keep safety in mind. First off, avoid consuming alcoholic beverages before hitting the trail. This can be dangerous for obvious reasons, and it leaves the rider prone to de-hydration. Secondly, make sure you wear the required protective gear. This includes helmets, gloves, and long pants. Although it is best to avoid a crash altogether, wearing the required safety gear provides a second layer of security in the unfortunate event that an accident occurs.

If you don’t have your own bike, or you’re hesitant about bringing one, then rest easy knowing that there’re a plethora of bikes available for rent. Rocky Point Cycle is a great option for mountain bike rentals. They have multiple rental plans that offer varying degrees of quality and rental duration. You can rent a bike for the entire span of your trip if you’d like.


Spring Activities in Rocky Point

Finding things to do in Puerto Peñasco is far from difficult. But we understand if our more pedantic property owners need to plan ahead. There are several activities to fill your itinerary with.

Spring Whale Watching

Spring is whale season in rocky point. Many flock to catch a glimpse of the sea’s most majestic treasures. We suggest looking in to Del Mar Charters, Eco Fun, and Intrepid. Most of these services guarantee a leviathan sighting or your money back. These boats double as a sunset cruise. Booze is available for those hoping to create a romantic setting. There’s something about a porpoise spouting a steamy mist from its blow hole that creates a romantic ambience.

Those in pursuit of a smaller fish will not be disappointed by the abundance of fishing charters available to tourists and residences. Santiago’s Ocean Services is a viable option for chartering a fishing boat—they also offer parasail rides. Pancho Villa Boat Charters also is a helpful resource when chartering a fishing boat. 

Tide Pool Tours

The Center for the Study of Deserts and Ocean’s (CEDO) also offers special kayaking tours. CEDO is also renowned for its Dunes tours and tide pool tours, which they offer in April. If you’re traveling with children they will assuredly enjoy the miniature world of a tide pool.

A Cooking Class

When Rocky Point comes to mind, most people think of wild parties and never ending days on the beach. However, there’re a plethora of gentle activities one can partake in that are just as fun as JJ’s—well almost. For those tamer tourists, Chef Mickey Medina offers cooking classes year round. A cooking class is the perfect activity for couples looking to grow closer together and spice things up.
