Wettstein Family Said…

Friday, November 16th, 2007


We were very excited to discover Rocky Point, Mexico! It’s only about a 4 hour drive from our house and the beaches were great and the snorkeling even better! We joined Kelly’s brother, Jay, and his wife Pam and their 3 kids plus Kelly’s sister Lisa and her husband Mike and their 4 kids in Rocky Point for a little weekend getaway. The condos Lisa set us up in were so great, the water was perfect for little kids (no big waves and riptides, just calm, blue water) and we loved that there was not very much to do except sit, relax, and watch the guys selling hats and bags and even braids on the beach. It was fun to see Emma have her first beach experience (she wasn’t a fan of the sand on her hands) while the other kids played in the tidepools and on boogie boards. We had a great time and look forward to next year!

My First Mexico Trip

Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

By Ralphdood

I remember about 10 years ago, or so, I took my first trip out of the good ol’ USA down to our southern neighbors in Mexico. To be a bit more exact, it was down to Rocky Point, also known as Puerto Penasco.

At that time, I was working for a Mom & Pop shop of CarQuest, as was my brother, Stuman. Out of the twelve or so employees, about six of us guys had decided to get out of town and do something one weekend. One of the guys had an aunt that had a timeshare condo there, and it was her weekend, but she was going somewhere else, and gave him permission to use it. Can’t beat it! Six guys, in Rocky Point, with alcohol and who knows what can happen!

Rocky Point Recap

This past weekend I took my family to Puerto Penasco, Mexico for the church’s annual Rocky Point mission trip. It was the first time that I have gone and what an awesome experience! If you have never gone, you need to seriously consider going next year. The church sent over 300 people and built 7 homes for Mexican families. Additionally, separate teams put on a children’s program for the barrio kids and there was an entire team responsible for feeding all of us! There were quite a few students who went, and I can’t even begin to express how impressed I was by the students who were there and worked their tails off for God.

The Girls in Mexico

In September, Grady and I took the Blufish MS office (Darcy and her boyfriend Darren) out to Arizona to meet all of the other Blufishes at the Tempe office. We drove down (about 4 hours) with everyone for the employee retreat at our usual “compound” in Puerto Penasco (a.k.a. Rocky Point), Mexico. There was a lot of volleyball, grilling, shopping, ATV riding, and some renegade Mexican fireworks. The group, about 25 of us, consumed many many tacos, breakfast burritos, fajitas, and about 16 cases of Mexican beer. It was a good time, but no doubt, the last big trip for this pregnant girl. Traveling is tough, even when Grady carries all of your luggage.

Boy healed walks for first time!

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

I just recently returned from a missions trip to Puerto Penasco, Mexico I was asked to shoot the video for Pure Heart.org. We traveled to a small village along the Sea of Cortez. We had an outdoor barbecue with music for the residents. The young boy in this video had never walked before. It was caused by a Birth condition where water got into the placenta. He had never felt his legs before, so you can imagine how scary and shocked he was. It was a very powerful moment a life changing experiance for everyone!!!
My faith in God for healing has increased since I was blessed to be apart of this incrediable miracle.”Glory to God !!!!!

Trip to Rocky Point, Mexico

Eddie, a MySpace user wrote:

Went To Rocky Point, Mexico for the Labor day weekend. We had a blast, the drive up was rough leaving phoenix from 7th ave to 99th was bumper to bumper after that it was smooth sailing. The first night we ate dinner at the little cantina  then walked out to the beach. The tide had gone out so there was all kinds of little critters in the water. The nexday we explored the beach again since it was now daylight. We drove into town and did some site seeing we some how picked up a nail and got a flat tire, we found a place to have it repaired only to find it had gone flat the next morning. so I had to switch it out to the ” Donut tire”. We again drove in to town to visit the aquarium, it is a small run down complex but entertaining just the same. There was a sea lion that we could feed he was so cute, we also fed the sea turtles. After that we had lunch and picked up some pollo asado for dinner later that night. We left early monday morning the traffic was lite. once we got to the border well thats when the traffic picked up, three hours later we were back in the united states.

Until next time… 

Happy Hyper Hadley Family!

Our family went to Rocky Point and we had an amazing time. We stayed at a Beautiful resort and spent most our time in the pool or on the ocean. It was so peaceful and so pretty. Brooklyn LOVED the sand and Mariyah loved chasing her Uncles around and running in the water. We all had such a memorable experience and the scenery was amazing. I know there are lots of pictures from our trip, but considering I took a TON, I did limit myself to only a few on our blog:

Here is a nice article I found on Trip Advisor, under the screen name mex21man. He and his wife have some nice things to say about Rocky Point. I thought you might like to read what they said. 

Hello everyone. Mex21Man & LuLu here, and we wanted to ask you a question, if we may. Where do you go to relax and recharge your “inner battery” before you go bananas? Where is that special place you have chosen as your safe haven? I know some people don’t like to share their chosen sacred ground, but I don’t mind because there is plenty for everyone. My favorite place to recharge is Rocky Point, Mexico. Now don’t roll your eyes, or go “aw, come on, Mexico”? Rocky Point is a 2 sided coin. Flip the coin and get “heads”, you have chosen to relax on the beach with a cold drink and watch an amazing sunset over the Sea of Cortez. The only time you will probably move is when you’re out of beer, have to use the restroom, or you ‘re getting hot and you want to cool down in the ocean. Flip the coin and get “tails”, now you have chose to go out and enjoy the nightlife and go dancing with your friends. You visit about 5 different clubs in one night before you even realize it happened. The night will end when you decide, not the watch on your wrist. YOU DECIDE! It’s your vacation. Enjoy it. Have fun and try the Taco Stands and great Restaurants. Enjoy the Ocean rentals and Activities. Make your own Land Adventure on Quads, ATV’s, or take a Jeep Tour to the Pinacate Mountain Range. Visit the Aquarium, Fresh Oyster Farms, or Kayak in the Estuary. Make Rocky Point exactly what you want it to be, “Your unforgettable adventure”. My wife and I love Rocky Point. We will continue to share our adventures with you. We hope you enjoy the photos. We ALWAYS load as many photos as possible so you can see how fun Rocky Point really is. Today, we have 8 photos of the Sunset in Rocky Point.

Wildcat Road Trip: Rocky Point

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

By: Kelly Lewis

Yes, Rocky Point in Mexico is a great place to find cheap drinks and dance the night away.

But hidden beneath the shroud of multicolored towels from tourists who visit for the parties on the weekend is a community full of individuals whose kindness can overwhelm the gringos who find themselves in sticky situations.

Sure, there is the occasional sketchy dude in the alley corner, or kids who try to steal your money by peddling Chiclets, but if you stick around long enough you will see that Rocky Point – also known as Puerto Peñasco – is actually a pretty awesome place.

I found that out last weekend, when my two older brothers decided to bring me along on a last-minute trip to the coastal town.

Everything was fine on the four-hour drive through the border, until we stopped the car at our hotel and realized that it would no longer start.

Pissed off and sweating under the heat and humidity, we actually considered having to take a local bus back to the border, until a few locals stopped by to help with jumper cables and a battery charger.

Staying for about an hour until the car started, they completely blew us away with their kindness, despite the language barrier.

And we may have found the town’s coolest bartenders when we went out that evening.

A little bar located near Manny’s Beach Club on Coahuila Avenue, Jill’s Place seems like your average hole-in-the-wall cantina until you walk inside and look around.

Flipping cups and mixing drinks to serve to the house for free, the bartenders are friendly, attentive and – best of all – speak perfect English. Their selection of liquor is top-shelf (think Jägermeister and Tequila Rose), and they know the recipes to drinks even we had never heard of.

After a day of banana boats and margaritas on the beach, Jill’s Place was the perfect place to end the night.

When the power went out throughout the entire city, our bartender, Louie, busted out a slew of flashlights and threw in a round of drinks just for hanging out. That’s what I call a good time.

The moral of the story is this: Rocky Point is as crazy as it is relaxing. But, if you find the right people and the right places, it’s a trip to remember.
