PUERTO PENASCO MEXICO – CITY GUIDE
puerto penasco is one our favorite places to visit. i came a lot as a child and i love bringing my own family down there to the same beaches i spent my childhood on. its changed so much since i was little. its such a small town so there are not many options for food but i wanted to share a few of our favorites. the next time you take a trip down you should try them out.
las palomas resort and spa- this is where we always stay. the rooms are big and there is plenty for the whole family to do. the kids love the pool and water slide. they have chairs and umbrellas on the beach to relax at. they have golfing + spa’s + restaurants all right in the hotel.
taco’s el poblano- this is the first place we stop at when we get in town. the waiter, fransisco knows us and just asks if we want the regular. probably my very favorite meal in any city. ivan and i get the caramelo taco’s, al pastor + cheese + guacamole + pico. i top them with their green salsa and get a coke. the kids get the cheese quesadilla’s and a fanta.
rosy’s- we get breakfast here. we love the huevos rancheros and the kids get chocolate chip pancakes.
koffee hause- i get the stuffed french toast. ivan gets the carne huevos rancheros, he says its even better than rosy’s. the kids get the pancakes.
la curva- ivan loves the el pollo godorniz. we love the chips they bring out before you order. the mariachi’s sing to you at your table which the kids love.
thrifty’s ice cream- we go here after taco’s el poblano. it’s just across the street.
max’s- i love their virgin bloody mary. i know its an acquired taste but if you like a bloody mary they have the best i’ve ever had.
potato burritos on the beach. also a breakfast favorite. just wait for someone, prefferably sonya to pass by. i like the soft and the crunchy with a side of valentina
mangos on the beach are our favorite snack. just wait for someone to walk by selling them or there’s a stand outside las palomas resort. i like mine with lime + chili + chamoy. the kids like theirs with lime only.
get a pina colada in a pineapple. you can find them off the side of the road just about anywhere.
visit choya bay mall for mexican blankets + dresses + vanilla and any sort of authentic mexican souvenir you want to bring home. we also drive down to the fish market for fresh fish and shrimp and stop by mary’s for a shrimp cocktail.
we bring down our ranger, park our car at the condo and drive that around instead. its a lot of fun and we can ride the sand dunes on the way into town.
on our home way we like to stop and grab tortillas in sonoyta.
i love when they play so much that they are this exhausted
everyday these guys on the beach would make a sand animal and everyday henri would recreate it in a smaller version
