Condominium Living In Rocky Point


Puerto Penasco, Rocky Point is a short 4 hour drive from Phoenix. Known as the Arizona Beach, it is a resort destination for many Arizonians. It will soon be the next Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. As you reach the town limits of Puerto Penasco on Hwy 8 just 54 miles south of the Sonoyta/Lukeville border, you see on the horizon the resort towers of Sandy Beach. Here you’ll find Las Palomas Seaside Golf Community, the Sonoran Resorts, Sandy Beach Resorts, Puerta Privada, Playa del Sol, Bella Sirena and the American expatriate enclave of Cholla Bay. Just north of Sandy Beach, near the newly constructed intercostal highway that connects Rocky Point with El Golfo and San Diego, is the resort communities of Laguna Shores. Drive another hour south of Puerto Penasco toward Carborca and you’ll be greeted by the Mayan Palace La Jolla de Cortes situated on the Estuary La Pinta.

Warm Beaches and Vacation Homes
We love it here in Rocky Point - warm beaches, friendly people, slower way of life and all the comforts of home. What else do you need to make the move to Puerto Penasco, Mexico and buy a vacation home on Sandy Beach? Resort living has finally come to Rocky Point. Once a party beach that hosted the bon fires and tents of college kids from the states, condominium resorts and golf courses have sprouted from the white sands on the Sea of Cortez.
