Had a blast! We went to Rocky Point (AKA Puerto Penasco) and every time we get there I can't believe that such a beautiful seaside vacation is only a 3 1/2 hour drive from Phoenix. Of course, with all the bad press, everyone kept telling us how dangerous it was to go... nope. Felt completely safe. They've made major improvements to the downtown area and it was fun to poke through all the open-air shops.
I felt bad for all the hardworking vendors who rely so heavily on tourism for their livelihood. I mean, we stayed at The Sonoran Sky and it was beautiful, but there were probably only fifteen families there with us! Really? The beach was practically deserted. The upside of this is that you can really haggle on the prices for wares, although I felt so bad I usually gave them full asking price.
If you live in the southwest, you really should go. Maybe not before I buy a condo there though--they're dirt cheap right now! These are pictures from the room we stayed in; 2 bedroom, 2 bath, full kitchen...all for under $600 for the week. Split between two couples, that's a seriously cheap vacation!
