Puerto Peñasco is a resort town located on the shores of the Sea of Cortez in the Mexican state of Sonora. It is often called “Rocky Point” in English and has been nicknamed “Arizona’s Beach” since it is closest to cities such as Phoenix, Tucson, and Yuma.
From these cities, Puerto Peñasco is a short three or four-hour drive through the Arizona and Sonora deserts. Due to its proximity to the States, Rocky Point is a major travel destination for families, spring breakers, bachelors /bachelorette parties, and weddings.
Therefore it is also the place to buy Rocky Point real estate, either as a second home, or as an investment for short-term rentals. Why not both, enjoying your property on your holidays and rent it for the rest of the year.
The Rocky Point Rally 2022
The favorite event of Puerto Peñasco is coming back tomorrow. From November 10th through November 13th, thousands of bikers meet at this beautiful place to have fun and contribute a lot of money to charity organizations.
Twenty-one years ago, Oscar Palacio started this traditional rally. In the first years, only a few hundred motorcycles went. It was just stopping them on the highway to get a donation and give them a wristband for them and the bike.
An annual traditional Rally
The rally became an annual tradition that now reunites 10,000 motorcycles every year. Bikers come from several Mexican and American states, such as Arizona, Baja, California, California, Chihuahua, Nevada, New Mexico, and Sonora.
Evidently, this rally is a well-known event among riders who meet here to enjoy the great atmosphere. Thus, many brotherhoods were born here throughout the years.
Giving back to the community
The primary purpose of this event is to raise funds for various charities and organizations as a service to the community of Rocky Point. Some of these organizations are the Red Cross, Fire Department, Casa Hogar La Montana and the Cancer Association George Papanicolaou.
When does it start?
Since today you may see participants arriving in groups of 5 to 20 riders to the different meeting places.
