A Travel Guide To RV Parks In Puerto Penasco Mexico

We had a wonderful time camping at 🚌 Playa Bonita Recreational Vehicle Park on our visit to Puerto Penasco a few seasons ago. Located directly on 🏖 Sandy Beach, it was the perfect choice for our stay.

I’ve put together a brief {Puerto Penasco RV Parks} Travel Guide, for those of you planning a camping vacation to this part of Mexico.

This was our furthest stop south, while enjoying our 🍁 Canada to Mexico RV Holidays.

We traveled a total of 1800 miles south from our home in British Columbia 🍁 Canada, on our 🏕 camping adventure 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, hopefully to 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.

Playa Bonita RV Park At Rocky Point Mexico

We decided on this recreational vehicle park among the others in the area, because of the number of positive reviews it had received on camping websites.

It was also in close proximity to the town center.

We do not tow a vehicle behind our Class C motorhome, 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 resort locales in Mexico over the years, but always 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! 🙂

Facilities at Playa Bonita

At this RV Park, you have the option of lovely spacious beachfront sites with full hook ups, that are 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 …

✔ 300 full hook up campsites including sewer;
✔ Free wi-fi at your campsite and in the clubhouse;
✔ Clean restrooms with free shower facilities;
✔ Laundry room;
✔ Clubhouse with Satellite television;
✔ Outdoor hot tub for your enjoyment;

Beachfront RV Sites.

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 and from right inside our motor home.

What an added bonus for our stay, to keep in touch with family during 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.

Of Special Note

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 well in advance!

Wash & Wax Your RV By Friendly Locals

Before & After Pictures of RV Repair and Painting

RV Painting Puerto Penasco Mexico

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. They will 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 and at a fraction of the cost you would pay in the – United States or Canada!

Art Work Painted On Your Recreational Vehicle

Again, at amazing prices that are just too hard to pass up!

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 here, 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 great to meet all of them, purchase some 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!

Puerto Penasco Shopping

If you do not want to be bothered or meet these very friendly people, then I recommend – not renting a beachfront site.

We always looked forward to one very special lady in the mornings. She brought her freshly made – breakfast tortillas with her, to sell at the park.

In the afternoon, a very nice gentleman would come around with his freshly baked doughnuts. 🍩 

As well, many locals and farmers would bring their; 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 best.

Final Thoughts Banner

This 🎣 fishing village of Puerto Penasco, is ideal for those looking for peaceful, friendly beachfront camping and ideally located just south of the 🏜 Arizona border.

From; great beaches, restaurants, shopping and more, it doesn’t get much better than this!
