Rocky Point Stop Signs

Stop signs of Rocky Point. What a fun project to take photos of stops signs today while I was out doing errands.
I thought of this idea a few months ago and decided since I had errands and appointments today, I would get a few shots from my car while out on the streets. Some of them you may recognize, some you cannot even see until you get right on top of them since they are hidden behind a tree or a parked car. Some are placed on telephone poles, some are stand alone, some are higher and some are way low which makes them hard to see. Some don’t have “ALTO” on them. Be on the lookout for unique signs as you are on the streets in Puerto Peñasco, Rocky Point Mexico. I have a favorite. Downtown, on the corner where Telmex and Rocky Imports is. Alot going on in that photo. The Telmex tower great landmark, bicycles locked to the pole, The man selling breakfast tamales from his ice chest, the Green and Blue Tec-Med trash dumpster,
A street sign with both names, and the blue wheelchair ramp, and the unique thing, an available
parking space! When you see one that looks like it has a dog house, at a closer look, it is an altar for someone who may have been killed in a traffic accident on that corner. There are flowers and a candle inside. I had to do a double take to catch that.

Positive comments from Rocky Point forum rockypointtalk.com

I am a member of the message board  www.rockypointtalk.com
The largest Puerto Peñasco Discussion Forum.

A member posted the request to post what we love about Rocky Point. As I read all the postings, I realized this would make a great blog article. Unfortunately “bad news sells” but we need to keep the momentum going to create a positive atmosphere and environment, keep positive in our minds and hearts. No room for negativity or nay sayers. I really loved her post request and I copied and pasted the positive comments here, no names attached, but you can visit the forum yourself and check it out www.rockypointtalk.com
Read for yourself what others have to say, and I agree what we have in Rocky Point-Puerto Peñasco
is the best of all worlds here. You be the judge.

 

I just wanted to start off the new year with a NEW TOPIC about “WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT ROCKY POINT?” Be Positive! No negativity please – I think we have all heard enough already so if you must be negative please post elsewhere.

For me – First and foremost when I am in Mexico all the worries North of the border disappear and just melt into rest and relaxation. Sleep in late – have morning coffee on the balcony while watching the dolphins play – take a walk the beach looking for treasures – take a nap – take another walk on the beach in the other direction – have a cocktail (or 2 – or 3) in the hot tub while watching the sunset. The beauty, the food, the shopping, the people – Good times!!

­******
We visited Rocky Point from New York for the first time in May 2012. After doing some research, we wondered if the location could possibly live up to its reputation. Did it ever! Upon arriving, I knew this place was different. I was more awake breathing the salty air, more alive hearing the sounds of the sea birds, and more energized knowing that this was a place I could someday call home. It’s got it all–beautiful mountains, never-ending beaches, dune-filled deserts, three hundred plus days of sunshine, mouthwatering food, and kindhearted residents. I mean, really, what’s NOT to love about Rocky Point?

*******
I have friends dying from Stress in the USA (new years eve). I don’t have that here. I eventually will die but it won’t be from stress and it will be in Mexico.

******
I love the relaxation of sitting on the balcony watching a killer sunset – happens every day here. Shopping at the Santa Fe and the Bodega across the street is fun – trying to figure out what normal stuff is, like sour cream or cheese, for example. Getting fresh, hot tortillas from a house in town. Butchering the language while attempting to communicate, and not being ridiculed for your poor efforts. Walking the beach and getting tanned in January

*****
Waking up and hearing how quiet it is only to be spoiled by the occasional ATV coming around.
Going to get warm fresh tortillas and then making a big breakfast for the family.
Cruising around to some of the beaches in my buggy, stopping to enjoy the view from the beach.
Feeding the seagulls with bread, amazing in 2 minutes you can have 50 of them floating above our house.
Going to one of our 10-12 favorite places to eat.
Watching the sunset with a cold Pacifico in hand.

*****
Just knowing this type of day will be repeated again the next day with variations, because I am blessed to be this lucky
to enjoy Mexico this much and have many more trips coming over the next 20+ years

*****
Hello all! First post on this forum! I just returned to LA after 5 days in rocky point. I have been coming down for RP vacations for 14 years. Even though I now live in Los Angeles, it is absolutely worth the drive.

*****
I love Mary’s limonadas, thiftys on a Friday night, clams and shrimp and margaritas, seeing dolphins and other wildlife (this time we saw a whale’s blowhole mist!! On New Year’s Day), and most importantly waking up to a view of sea.

*****
I’ve been many places but my heart is in rocky point.

*****
I’ll just echo all of the above and add;
Meeting new people every time I come down. Making new friends….if only for a weekend.
Sipping a cold tequila or a an ice cold XX.
Shopping at Super Ley… collecting all my favorites.
Just being there….. Forgetting about the daily grind.

*****
Obviously, the beach and the Sea of Cortes, but what I love best is/are the people. Plain and simple, the people.

*****
I have never had a bad day in Puerto Penasco, even the day I became best friends with the police department and the
judge. Never a bad day. Can’t wait to return.

*****
All of the above, along with the fact that Penasco/Mexico’s rough edge has always been precisely what adds to it being the ‘Cure for civilization’, as Club Med used to claim. We have been visiting, touring and generally doing business in Mexico longer than many of the naysayer ‘experts’ on this forum have been alive and I can attest that although Mexico has a long history of shooting itself in the foot, it always rebounds in even better shape. A one hour drive below the US border is all it takes to enjoy bargain vacations on beautifull beaches and spicy entertainment or mere relaxation with fresh seafare and libations. I always enjoy the very best of both US and Mexico worlds very close by and although I eventually enjoy returning to the US, I am already making plans to return to Penasco. I really love Mexico and its people.

*****
I moved to RP because I love the ocean, the friendly people, the fishing, the boating, the food. I like meeting people from all over the world who vacation in RP. ( I met people from Europe 2 weeks ago here vacationing in RP ) I like that its a small town & you can be most anywhere in a 5 minute drive. I like taking the boat out fishing & dolphin / whale watching or taking the dune buggy to explore the dunes, estuary or remote beaches.

*****
I feel the same way – unfortunately it will be closer to 10 years for us – Argh!!!!!

*****
And I enjoy that RP is geographically in the perfect location at the top of the Sea Of Cortez only a 1 hour drive from the US with no large cities near by making it the perfect destination to easily drive to etc……Just another day in paradise in RP..

*****
What I love most about RP is what most have already mentioned AND where else only a one hour drive away from the US can you own a gorgeous beach front property for a fraction of what the same property costs in California or Florida etc. And in RP you are truly beachfront & you can walk your dog on the beach & pull your jet ski / boat right up on the beach etc……I love Mexico and RP !!

*****
The good people – really good people we have met, and continue to meet each trip.
the beach along the Mirador – simply beautiful.
cold cervesas, fine tequila, shrimp and fish.
getting to explore each time we go down, and seeing something we haven’t seen before – learning stuff and making memories.
finally – looking forward to being there much more in the future.

*****
I really like some of the places to eat,a few of the vets and the dentists are good,the Red Cross comes in handy,Sams is a interesting big box but I do like to see it in my rear view mirror when I head to Mexico.

*****
Tacos, Tequila, Mar, Chicas,Pescando, andar en las playa’s. calle 13, malecon, pan dulce, Burger King (lol), Adventure….

*****
I loved my lunch today and I loved our beach walk afterwards!

*****
Speaking for myself, I would say that one of the biggest draws for us it that it is exactly 4 hours drive from “door to shore” for us. Having been to California and Florida, as well as along the “Mexican Riviera”. The fact that we can stay on actual beach front property for so much less and being able to bring big doggie with us have been fantastic and, consequently, we have taken vaction time more, which is another huge benefit. I realize it is not for everyone, but it is working out so good for us. We have discussed the pro’s and con’s of owning, but for now we just rent which has been working out very well for us so far. Maybe someday when we do not have these 40+ hours a week jobs we can look into more options.

*****
No two trips are ever the same…. always try something new

*****
I think what we like the most about being in Mexico and in Playa Encanto is all the friends we made over 13 years with all of our trips to the Playa and in town. We are a ways out and we make trips to town with friends to visit friends that live in town for lunch or dinner then to the fish market to see Jose. One of the high lights is we just had our 5th annual New Years beach parade down the entire beach with every one lit up with their Jeep, Sand Rail, Suzuki, Quad. There was a lot of people out here to bring in the New Year.

*****
I like the burrito ladies coming by on weekend mornings. Finding openwater weirdities like seahorses and fireblue jellyfish and an osprey taking a fish just off your bow. Playing “Find the ALTO Sign–Right, Median, or Missing!” on J. Dominguez. Stand-up paddling into a pod of dolphins and flipping out and falling in when one comes too close. Tidewalking the pools when the sea is out. Swimming down the shoreline when the sea is in. Snorkeling when the sea is clear. That online map from the ’60s that says “Sharks All Over” off Las Conchas. The sandrays going away at summer’s end. The ladies hucking oysters for me at El Barco. The 5000-year-old archaeological sites around the estuaries and Cholla Bay. The lineup of “Almost Free” guys selling–oddly–firewood and honey on Fremont. The plaza on the malecon. The unspeakable meat parts for sale in the supers. The new coastal highway. The Tiburones, and how it looks like every player is named “Tecate”. The Pinacate moonscape on the jeep trail out to Cona Roja. The 11 seaside holes at the Mayan Palace. The CEDO tide calendar. Running on the nice, firm flats at low tide. June. Half of July. Sunset bocci, and that feeling when you think the ball is going in the water, but at the last second it hangs up in a little tide pool. Roger Clyne music. 1/10 of Mark Mulligan music. “Uncle Johnny” at Capones teaching my stepson things like, “Always take a hot chick with you to a strip club.” *****
Wrecked at the Reef…all of it. The view from Competition Hill. The “Vodka Lady’s” front yard in Cholla. Snorkeling with sea lions at Bird Island. The cheesy pirate show on the Rey del Mar. The “sunset” thread that has the same picture 97 times.

*****
I think we were cut from the same mold.
Even though I have lived in Arizona most all my life, and have been to Mexico before (Puerto Vallarta, Cabo, Mazatlan 3 times, a few of the boarder towns) I never really became aware of the connection I have to to Mexico till visiting Puerto Penasco. Some of my family and friends say I was Mexican in a
a past life

*****
I have only been going down since 2004 and have gone at least twice a year since. I to feel more at home there than I do in the US.
Call me crazy…..

*****
I have been to Hawaii 4x, the Bahamas, Canada and various places in Mexico.
What I have found is that whether I’m in Puerto Vallarta or Puerto Penasco, I’m am the most Relaxed while in those places, Ok Mazatlan and San Carlos come in close second.

*****
In a few more years when our kid’s are all grown up we plan on spending 6 months a year at all the Mexico places mentioned and other locals in Mexico.
As much as I’m not a fan of the cruise port idea, I actually look forward to doing a cruise from there to visit other locals on the Sea of Cortez.

*****
I’m a self-proclaimed re-born Mexicana and look forward to moving to Mexico full time in four years 3 1/2 years. Until then, we visit one to two times a year and I dream in shades of turquoise.

 

*****
What I love besides the obvious venue of sand and sun, is coming down and seeing my friends and neighbors again. Cholla is a small community of wonderful people. When we go into town we always meet new friends find new fun places to return to. We feel very luck to be able to come down twice a month.

*****
We feel fortunate. I can’t wait to retire and stay for months at a time though.

 

*****
Twice a month – and I thought we were doing great if we could get there twice a year! Good for you – and I too am super jealous.
Well it seems that we are all waiting for “someday”.

 

*****
What I love the most is how the members of this forum are ready to jump at each others throat in here and then meet at the beach or PP in general and act like best buddies, of course with a Tecate on hand!!! but what I REALLY like the most is the warm feeling of belonging that I get when I interact with people anywhere in PP and of course the FOOD!!!!

*****
What I love about Rocky Point is that I am hoping to be there again – very soon!

*****
27 days and counting

*****
Hoping to be down by 4:30 today at the latest! Grocery store run, and a beer in my hand by 6:00 p.m.!!!!

*****
On our way down too! Can’t wait to get a beer! The supermarket can wait until tomorrow, the beach is calling me.

 

  • Counting shrimp boats on the horizon.
  • Having a cold XX with breakfast after a beach walk.
  • Doctors waiting to help you in the lobby of Red Cross when you walk in.
  • The old Polaroid camera guy in Old Port.
  • “banana boat!!!!”
  • Capones’ pizza, Pac-Man’s jokes, Johnny’s Viking braids, waiting for my frozen beer to melt.
  • Carne con chile burritos at Longos
  • Having the whole beach to myself
  • Watching Osprey pluck fish out of the surf.
  • Sweating screen doors when it’s humid.
  • The beauty of the Sonoran desert touching the ocean.
  • Getting the green light.
  • Feeling like Pinacate has moved wherever I am.

WONDERFUL POSTS and Thank you to everyone.

El Golfo de Santa Clara, Sonora Mexico

My business partner, Maria Alemany, and I just listed a cute house in El Golfo de Santa Clara, and the El Capitan Restaurant, Bar and RV park also in El Golfo de Santa Clara. The house is about 6 blocks from the beach and the restaurant El Capitan is beach front. Since the only real estate agent in town retired, she has graciously given us her home to list and the El Capitan that is owned by her friend Teresa. See Teresa’s interview at the link below. See the home link below.IMG_4283
El Golfo de Santa Clara holds many memories for many people, and many memories are continuing to be made now, since El Golfo is a huge attraction for its sandy pristine beaches, weekend getaways and camping, there are several nice hotels here too. It is Yuma’s beach, about a 2 hr drive, and even shorter drive for those coming from San Luis and Mexicali. This is where the 4 wheelers and dune buggies go, very popular for Mexicans and Americans to bring their ATV’s, they have races, there are many youtube videos about it. This one is good: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9d5H78sdQo
Tom and Sandy O’Hare the publishers of the Rocky Point Times always wrote about the “El Golfo Run” every year. Glen Martinez, a Puerto Penasco and Arizona Realtor also is a huge fan of El Golfo, he and his family have been going there for 40 years, way before electricity and paved roads he tells me!
Many people stop there and don’t go any further to Rocky Point. Jacques Cousteau’s Calypso’s team went there to study and record the Vaquita (looks like a dolphin), Sean Penn’s movie “Into the Wild” was filmed there, Teresa the owner of El Capitan has a photo of Sean Penn up on her “celebrity wall”: http://www.imdb.com/search/title?locations=El%20Golfo%20de%20Santa%20Clara%2C%20Sonora%2C%20Mexico&ref_=ttloc_loc_1
The movie “Borderline” was also filmed there.
There is also beachfront land listing in the MLS and I have access to that information for anyone that is interested.
It is on the route of the new coastal highway that was completed a couple of years ago, in fact the road construction was held up in 2008, I remember I was in my office when my friend, Liane Armstrong wrote up a rental contract for some archeologists staying in Rocky Point, there were many archeologists that were on the dig, once the government and diggers were satisfied then they could complete the road construction. There are still digs going on today.

Mexico: A Smart Investment Opportunity?

Mexico: A Smart Investment Opportunity?

Thinking of making an investment in Mexico? Wells Fargo strategists explain why it could be a smart investment decision.wf_invest_mexico_lg
News stories from Mexico rarely highlight the country’s robust economic growth, a burgeoning car export industry or its rising national productivity. But many observers argue that the economic story is defining Mexico’s future. Investors who 10 years ago looked beyond the headlines and found merit in the country’s economic fundamentals and enlightened fiscal policies have seen the Mexican Bolsa equity index average a 21.7 percent annual gain during the 2003–2012 decade, according to Bloomberg and calculations from Wells Fargo Advisors.

Puerto Vallarta Vegetables and Meat

Puerto Vallarta vegetables and meat markets…
Yesterday, Sunday March 18, 2013, was the big day for me to go to the vegetable and meat market in my neighborhood. My doggy Joaquina and I walked the 3 blocks or so to the mercados. We needed to go early since they close early Sundays. This mercado is in the Emiliano Zapata neighborhood. Neighborhoods are known as “Colonias”. I live in Colonia “Caloso” which is right next to “Canoas”. In the Emiliano Zapata vegetable and meat market area/mercado, there is a lavenderia (laundry), meat market (carneceria), vegetables and fruit market, restaurants, small shops selling toys and kitchen ware, a locksmith, flower shop, and more.

I went to the meat market for chicken, and the vegetable market for: cilantro, huge head of cauliflower, celery, red onions, white onions, shallots, green onions, avocados, tomatoes, radishes, lettuce, and I’m sure there was more, just don’t recall.

The chicken were 2 large legs with the thighs attached. Cost about $2. The vegetables cost about $8. Also down the street there is a fish market, the other day I got a filet that was thick and tasty, weighed about a half pound if I had to guess, that cost was about $2.50. All prices I am saying are in US dollars, for the readers understanding. I only use pesos, so I give estimates in USD.

I love the prices at these mercados. The food is fresh and tasty and great prices. It was a very busy morning! The umbrella out front is a guy selling cheese and offering samples.

Next Sunday will be another adventure, just don’t know yet what that will be.

Puerto Vallarta Casa Kimberly Walking Tour

???????????????????????????????Sorry for how this looks, I uploaded a bunch of photos and not sure how to arrange them, and one turned sideways. They are in order of my self guided walking tour. Have you ever lived somewhere and never took the time to go see a historical landmark? I lived in Tucson Arizona for many years and never went to the Grand Canyon. It took me moving to another state to decide to visit it. I also don’t go to the beach alot, because I know it will always be there!

That’s how I have been in Puerto Vallarta. I go to work, I go home. Rinse and repeat! I have lived in Puerto Vallarta selling real estate for 2 1/2 years and realized the time has flown by so fast and there are a few things I have not done and decided to put them on my bucket list. SO starting last Sunday, March 10th I started with my first adventure! Have you heard of “Casa Kimberly”?

In 1964, when they filmed John Huston’s Night of the Iguana movie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058404/with Richard Burton, Ava Gardner, Sue Lyon, Deborah Kerr. Elizabeth Taylor came to visit Richard Burton on the set, along came the Papparazzi which helped make Puerto Vallarta famous. (Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor were married but not to each other)

Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor had 2 homes which connected to each other with a bridge painted pink. I had always wanted to see this but either didn’t have the time, busy working or just got lazy. Turns out that when I wrote it in my notes that I WILL do this, it came to be. So my doggy “Joaquina” and I had our showers and breakfast and started the walk. I live in Caloso which is a few blocks from Gringo Gulch where Casa Kimberly is on Zaragoza Street. I took photos along the way and below are the photos, pretty much in order, and some are when I turned back to look from where I came. There were quite a few others doing the same thing. I also discovered a bridge that I will discover later, I needed to stay focused on the task at hand. I had heard that someone has been trying to rebuild the homes, but I don’t know the real story. I did see some building materials inside the gate and took a photo of it. Who really knows the what and when to the construction details.

When I turned left onto the white handrailed bridge I did take a couple photos from that, then turned back to the Casa Kimberly on Zaragoza Street plan.

After I passed Casa Kimberly and continued walking, I came to a dead end. This is a narrow road and cars did drive through, and there is a way to turn right so where you will be behind the church, but I stayed on my course. There are 2 staircases on either side of the dead end. The views were beautfiful. I chose the left stairs. There was a guy sitting in the shade, we exchanged words in Spanish, he was very sweet. At the bottom, there is a bust statue of somebody that looked famous so I took the photo and looked him up later. Don Agustin Flores Contreras, here’s more info: http://visitpuertovallarta.com/blog/2012/12/agustin-flores-contreras/  My next photos I can see the plaza near the malecon and a nice destination that I had not planned on but was a nice treat…Starbucks!!! They were having a 2 for 1 special. Was very nice to sit and relax and visit with tourists. I love Starbucks. The small cup is water for Joaquina (http://www.facebook.com/#!/joaquinathedog) and a photo shows me sharing some whipped cream on a stick with her. She loves having a treat, and she is a magnet, people love walking up to her and taking her picture and saying hello. Tomorrow, Sunday March 17, I will do another fun thing and walk along the river near the mercados and will take photos. I will also find a place for green beer for St. Patrick’s day!

I will pay a referral fee to the person that introduces a qualified buyer to me. Will be paid after the successful closing.

rocky point lotThis parcel is only $154 per square meter and is over 11,000 square meters. The other comp down the street on Sandy Beach is only 6300 Square meters and is $600 per square meter. You can see that THIS parcel we are offering is certainly a better investment.

Remember there is the new home port about to be constructed. Who knows how much property prices will increase! No one has the crystal ball into the future, but what we do know is the history of Penasco prices. They grew higher and higher, then 2008 happened, since then prices have fallen. Rocky Point will rise again with the new Sandy Beach master plan and new home port for cruise ships.
