Our new international airport due for completion at the end of the year creates a bridge to our slice of heaven, Rocky Point, Mexico where you can make your dream a reality. The investment opportunities are limitless: beach front condos, commercial properties, land parcels and beautiful seaside homes offer you the potential for being where the puck is going to be.

In Rocky Point, you’ll experience a time of awakening, the sound of the surf, coffee on the patio, and an interlude of solitude all along the seashore. A lone walker on the beach and then two, the dawn’s at hand, a new day of wonder. Where will it take you as you see the beauty and feel the peace of the sun coming through?

The seagulls and pelicans greet the day and their flight creates action in a calm setting. Our sleepy fishing port feels the sun as the time comes to begin a new day. In greeting the day what new vibrations shall come forth from our village by the sea? What melody shall we hear?
If you are an early riser, you may take a stroll along the beach, watch the sun come up and see the shadows over the Malecon or stop by one of the cafés for a delicious latte (Max’s by Penasco del Sol Hotel, Coffee’s Haus on the way to Old Port, Café’ Bistro on Freemont Blvd). On the beach, you can have a generous breakfast buffet at Oceanview Restaurant while in the town at La Curva’s - one of the oldest restaurants - you can have authentic Mexican Cuisine.

German Breakfast

Coffee’s Haus has delicious omelets, yummy French toast and Belgium waffles. Are you hungry yet? Who would ever think Rocky Point would have a German chef? Uwe Holtze, master pastry chef owns Coffee’s Haus restaurant with his wife Lily. From Germany to Canada to Boston and now Rocky Point, Uwe’s journey is Rocky Point’s good fortune.
Uwe and Lily opened Coffee’s Haus in July of 2005 when they arrived here and named it after their dog “Coffee.” Uwe and Lily offer “food you’d like to eat at home” only better, as fresh ingredients with a German flare are always part of the menu. Specials of the day and great customer service make the atmosphere one you want to return to again and again.

The Coffee’s Haus is truly a place that offers both a warm, cozy feeling and outstanding homemade breads and continental cuisine. Of the homemade pastries featured, the apple strudel with vanilla sauce, a true Austrian recipe, is a favorite amongst residents and tourists alike. Uwe’s dream is to open a “pastry shop” in Rocky Point with a sidewalk café ambiance.

Puerta Privada

After breakfast one can tour Puerta Privada, our “private door” ocean front condominium development. Puerta Privada is the only non-rental condominium community on Sandy Beach in Rocky Point. Offering stunning elegant style in the 2 and 3 bedroom residences with breathtaking views in all directions, Puerta Privada’s twin towers are parallel to the ocean with both city and sunset views. The newly designed Las Palomas seaside golf course, adjacent to Puerta Privada, is the only true links course in Northern Mexico. With upscale architecture throughout, a feeling of richness compliments the comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.

Puerta Privada is a vacation retreat, retirement paradise, or second home destination you will want to return to again and again. It is an exclusive beachfront community where dreams come true. Each unit has an unobstructed view of the Sea of Cortez and the amenities are top of the line. A lifestyle fitness center looks out to the sea, a game room features shuffleboard, darts, a pool table, and air hockey, and the owner’s clubhouse is the ultimate location for a wedding reception or family reunion.

Lunch Time

Is it time for lunch yet? Brother’s Pizza is family owned and operated by the Robicoff’s from Denver, Colorado. After moving to Rocky Point this summer, the Robicoff’s saw an opportunity to create a new business with their sons Reed and Dan. In an interview with Penny and Bob they shared their reasons for relocating to Rocky Point: “affordable ocean front living and the proximity to Phoenix and Tucson gave them the best of both worlds: a small town with friendly people and a relaxing lifestyle.” Try a “slice” of paradise at Brothers Pizza and you will come back for another soon.

After lunch it is time for an afternoon siesta in order to wake up and experience the atmosphere of Rocky Point’s red sky at sunset and enjoy the tantalizing taste of the fresh catch of the day for dinner. Remember that experiencing the priceless joys in life await you here, where “choices like footprints leave a lasting impression.”
