Rocky Point (Puerto Peñasco) is a favorite vacation destination almost anytime during the year. That's why it is important to book hotel room reservations early to get the best seasonal rates.

There are a limited number of hotels, rental homes and resorts at Rocky Point and they fill up fast. The closer to the the major events like the Bike Rally and Spring Break, the higher remaining room rates will go. Choice rooms sell out quickly and often months in advance.

Located at the beach in the famous Sandy Beach Resorts master planned community of Puerto Penasco, Rocky Point, you find the major hotels, resorts, condos and house rentals.

Rocky Point hotels, resorts and rental homes are still rising from the sand dunes. In anticipation of new tourists from the soon to be expanded airport and new highway from California, builders have been speculating on an explosion of tourism, despite the slowdown in the U.S. economy.

Rocky Point hotels

Annual events like Spring Break and November's Rocky Point Bike Rally still fill hotel rooms up to months before the events. The earlier room reservations are booked, the better the rate and accomodations. Most hotels require that guests be at least 25 years of age to check-in.

With such a glut of rooms, though, and a soft U.S and Mexican economy, careful planners can probably score a great discount on a room or rental.

Last minute bookings may have some great deals, but it is riskier when rooms fills up fast, as they do during spring break. Rocky Point, Mexico may have better, more competitive, rates during the off-season, though.

EMOL.org has partnered with Travelocity, Priceline and Orbitz to select the best rates for your Puerto Peñasco/Rocky Point vacation stay. These are the major hotels, condo and timeshares along Sandy Beach.
