Four Wheeling

Riding an ATV allows you to explore even the most rugged terrain, four wheeling opens a whole world of possibilities for exploring Puerto Penasco. Surrounded by desert and sand Rocky Point provides a great off-roading landscape. One of the most fun places to go four wheeling is competition hill located right next to Cholla Bay. You can basically race up and down this 300 foot long sandy hill with a 30 degree slope all day and all night.

Riding on the beach is no longer allowed but there are plenty of off-road spots around the town. You can ride behind the beaches at Playa Encanto, Cholla Bay, Sandy Beach and Las Conchas. But keep in mind only off road riding is allowed in these areas.

Quad, side by side and sand rail rentals are available all throughout the town. Rental prices average about $20.00 for a quad and about $40.00 for a side by side per hour.

Ultralight Flying

Ultralight planes are very light weight aircrafts used for sport and recreation.  The flying is low and slow and is done during the day.  There are no window or windshields, so looking forward and to the sides you see only the sky and the beautiful ocean waters of Puerto Penasco, you feel the wind gently on your face.

You might think this experience is only for people looking to push the boundaries of danger but that’s not the case at all.  When renting an ultralight flight in Rocky Point you will not be flying alone, you will be riding with an experienced pilot who gives professional ultra light rides to tourists. The view is spectacular; the sense of flying is exhilarating.

Flights normally last about 8-15 minutes and cost around $50.00.  Typically the people who do the rentals for jet skis and para sailing also do ultralight flights.

Braids on the Beach

This is a really fun thing to do especially with little girls and very inexpensive.  Get your beach braid look from one of the many ladies walking the beaches of Rocky Point.  They carry a book with photos of the different styles you can choose.  Normally two women will braid your hair and they are very fast!  And the best part is it costs 10.00 to 15.00 for average length hair and you can always negotiate the price.
