by M.A. Velazquez

Gone are the days when Spring Break trips were just for college students!  With popular tourist destinations like Rocky Point so close to the US, more and more families are opting to take advantage of their kids’ time off of school to get in some quality family time.  Not only is Rocky Point a close distance from the US, but its also safe and family friendly.  Weather its pool time or water sports, Rhino rentals or a trip to El Pinacate, there are many family friendly activities in Rocky Point.

For perfect pool time, many resorts have slides or shallow areas designating a play pool or kiddie area  for the little ones.  To liven up your beach time try a Banana Boat rental, jet ski or kayak rental for the whole family.  For a little land adventure you can rent a Rhino or a Polaris that seats four and take a ride into town where you will find many restaurants and souvenir shops in the “Old Port” or more specialty shops at the Cholla Mall.

Crater _El_EleganteIf you are looking to do a bit more exploring you can take a trip to hike a trail at El Pinacate Biosphere Reserve by the UNESCO, see more than 200 volcanic craters including the place where the NASA did the land on the moon trials.  Also you can learn more about wildlife if you visit the Shuk Toak Visitor Center where you can listen to biological lectures, see photos and displays of archaeological remains and watch a documentary on the biosphere in the audio visual room.  El Pinacate and Shuk Toak are about 20 minutes North of Rocky Point.  If you’re looking to learn more about marine life you can visit CEDO, Intercultural Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans, where you can explore the natural resources and cultures of the Sonoran Desert and Sea of Cortez with marine biologists and see marine animal fossils, including that of a full sized whale.

If camping-it is more your style and you have or rent an RV, there are 3 local RV parks that all have beach access and water and electrical supplies.

For the moms and dads who need a bit of escapism, there are massages on the beach and full service spas as well as 3 beautiful golf courses.  If you are considering great vacation package deals, just keep in mind that you only need to drive approximately 3.5 hours from Phoenix, Tucson, Yuma, El Centro, Calexico and all the Imperial Area locations to be in a warm beach location.  With what you would spend on expensive airline tickets you can save to have a bigger budget to share and enjoy with your family.

There are now several resorts on Sandy Beach, Playa Hermosa, Playa Bonita, Las Conchas, La Cholla and many other beaches available for Spring Break-ers. Most hotels and resorts have an on-site restaurant with daily happy hour specials and some have convenience stores on the property.  For those who prefer to stay in town rather than on the beach, there are several hotels on 13th Street and on Benito Jaurez Blvd. If you stay on Sandy Beach, many of the resorts host daily pool parties with either live bands or hired DJs and swim up bars to get the party started.

You can find Banana Boat rides, Kayaking, Jet-Ski Rentals, Paddle Boarding and Light Flights over the ocean.  You can even hop on a Party Cruise around the bay with drinks, snacks and live music included.  The average temperature during the month of March is 77 degrees, making it the perfect time to catch some sun at a pool party, boost your adrenaline with a water activity or hop on a boat around the bay.   If you prefer to stay on land, ATV´s or QUAD rentals are available in both town and the beach areas.

Spring_Break_2014_Puerto_Penasco-024When you are ready to party you can hit one of the clubs along Sandy Beach, which have DJs and live bands daily during spring break. If you head over to the “Old Port”, “The Mirador” or “La Calle 13” you will find several bars adjacent to one another also offering daily drink specials, music and spring break contests.  Most bars and clubs stay open until 2 am.  These areas also have several restaurant options, and for a quick bite, taco stands and hot dog stands can be found on most any corner and are popular and affordable. Many areas are also lined with local vendors offering everything from souvenirs, T-shirts and beach dresses to sunglasses and purses.

Between the pool parties, the water sports, the bar-hopping and the shopping, Rocky Point is the perfect destination for your Spring Break Get-Away!
