A Travel Guide To RV Parks In Puerto Penasco Mexico
I’ve put together this helpful Puerto Penasco RV Parks Travel Guide. We had a wonderful time camping atPlaya Bonita Recreational Vehicle Park located directly on Sandy Beach and for us, it was the perfect choice!
For those who followed along on our 🍁 Canada to Mexico RV Holidays. This was our Second Stop on our 1800 mile camping adventure south in our Recreational Vehicle.
We made frequent stops in the States of Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona and our final destination into Mexico.
I put these posts together along with our personal photos and videos for you to have a look and hopefully, encourage and offer a little travel inspiration along the way.
I also wanted to provide some helpful travel tips and suggestions that may come in handy for you in your travels.
Full Facility Puerto Penasco RV Parks
Playa Bonita RV Park At Rocky Point Mexico
We decided on this campground among the others in the area, because of positive reviews and the close proximity the park was to the town center.
We do not tow a vehicle behind our Class C Motor home, so we really wanted to be as close to town as possible. At the same time, still remaining on the beautiful long stretch of beach known as – 🌅 Sandy Beach.
Playa Bonita seemed just perfect for our needs and it certainly was!
I was not expecting the facilities to be as complete as they were. We have enjoyed traveling to other tourist locales in Mexico over the years and many other parts of the world by air. We never expected to have similar standards that we are so accustomed to and spoiled with here in North America.
This property certainly pleasantly surprised the two of us! 🙂
Playa Bonita Recreational Vehicle Park
Facilities at Playa Bonita
First and foremost as mentioned previously, you have the option of lovely spacious beachfront sites with full hook ups suitable for the largest of Class A motor homes. At the time of our stay a few seasons ago now, the park could accommodate 300 campers.
All of their sites are just a few steps from the beach!
Here is a list of what the park has to offer …
Our site was a distance from the lobby area and club house but surprisingly, we had an excellent Wi-fi internet connection on most days from right inside our motor home.
What an added bonus for our stay to keep in touch with family for our 2 week stay at the park!
Picnic Area and Jacuzzi in the Park
The Playa Bonita staff was always friendly throughout our stay and always willing to assist in any way they can, making for a wonderful stay.
We were very lucky to have driven right in and secure the last non reserved beach front site!
It was brought to our attention from other campers who regularly visit, that reservations are normally required in order to make sure you get one of these premium sites.
So if you plan on staying for the winter and do want a beachfront campsite, then I highly recommend contacting the park and making a reservation and doing so well in advance!
Wash & Wax Your RV By Friendly Locals
Before & After Pictures of RV Repair and Painting
Need your rig washed and waxed? Well this is the place! Just book a time while at the park and a crew will come right to your site and do a complete wash and wax at prices that are ridiculously low!
Need body work or painting done?
Again, wait until you come to Puerto Penasco. During our stay we watched one older Class A motor home be completely stripped and sanded down. It was then repainted right at a shop located in the park at the back.
Our neighbors had fiberglass repairs and painting done to their 🚌 motor home as well. This was first class work at a fraction of the cost you would pay in the United States or Canada!
Art Work Painted On Your Recreational Vehicle
If you want your rig painted with ‘spray art’ to make it truly unique, then again, this is the place. We watched a young artist do amazing work on people’s campers during our stay.
If you have photo of anything you want painted on your RV, he can do it for you.
Again, at amazing prices that is just too hard to pass up!
Beautiful Art Work
Friendly Neighbors From Everywhere
It was so nice to meet fellow campers and travelers during our stay at this park!
Unlike camping in North America so frequently, everyone is so friendly and easy to meet. They’re not hiding out in their RV’s and only surfacing when they need to let the dog out! 🐶
We met people from all parts of the United States and Canada, who were all eager to offer any assistance for us newbies to the area.
It was a really nice change and we look forward to meeting them once again on our next visit to Rocky Point.
Locals Selling Their Wares On The Beach
Some find it annoying, but the locals have to make a living. They are on the beach selling pretty much anything and everything. All of the vendors were very friendly and not pushy what so ever, unlike other countries we have visited in the past.
Like our neighbors camping in the site next to us, who have known some of the locals selling here for over 35 years. It was enjoyable to meet them, purchase items and help them support their families at the same time.
We were able to buy some wonderful handmade crafts, as well as many delicious homemade food items from these friendly people.
It really adds to the uniqueness and overall experience of visiting this part Mexico!
If you do not want to be bothered or meet these very friendly people, then definitely do not rent a beachfront site.
We always looked forward to one very special lady in the mornings. She brought her freshly made breakfast tortillas to sell at the park. In the afternoon, a very nice gentleman would come around with his fresh baked doughnuts.🍩
As well, many locals and farmers would bring fresh fruit, vegetables and of course what Puerto Penasco is most famous for – 🦐 Fresh Jumbo Shrimp!!!!
There are a number of other campgrounds in town and on the beach. It just gets down to a matter of choice and what suits your wants and needs are.
This fishing village of Puerto Penasco is ideal for those looking for peaceful, friendly beachfront camping ideally located just south of the Arizona border.
From great beaches, restaurants, shopping and more, it doesn’t get much better than this!
