Puerto Penasco RV Parks Travel Guide

A Travel Guide To RV Parks In Puerto Penasco Mexico

Table of Contents

I’ve put together this helpful Puerto Penasco RV Parks Travel Guide. We had a wonderful time camping atPlaya Bonita Recreational Vehicle Park located directly on Sandy Beach and for us, it was the perfect choice!

For those who followed along on our Canada to Mexico RV Holidays. This was our Second Stop on our 1800 mile camping adventure south 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 for you to have a look and hopefully, 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 campground among the others in the area because of the positive reviews received from others and the close proximity to the town center. We do not tow a vehicle behind our Class C Motor home, so we really wanted to be as close to town as possible, but 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.  Having traveled extensively to other tourist locals in Mexico over the years and many other parts of the world by air, we never expect to have the same 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

First and foremost as mentioned previously, you have the option of lovely spacious beachfront sites with full hook ups suitable for the largest of Class A motor homes.  All together at last count, the park can accommodate 300 campers with all sites just a few seconds 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 from right inside our motor home.

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


We were very lucky to have driven right in and secure a 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 and doing so well in advance!

Wash & Wax Your RV By Friendly Locals

Before & After Pictures of RV Repair and Painting

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

Art Work Painted On Your Recreational Vehicle

If you want your rig painted with ‘spray art’ to make it truly unique, then again, this is the place. We watched a young artist do amazing work on people’s campers during our stay.

If you have photo of anything you want painted on your RV, he can do it for you!  Again, at amazing prices that is just too hard to pass up!

Friendly Neighbors From Everywhere

It was so nice to meet the many people during our stay at this park. Unlike camping in North America, everyone is so friendly and easy to meet, not hiding out in the RV’s and only surfacing when they need to let the dog out!

We met people from all parts of the U.S. 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 in the site next to us who have known some of the locals selling for over 35 years. It was enjoyable to meet them, purchase items and help them support their families at the same time.

We were able to purchase some wonderful handmade crafts, as well as many delicious homemade food items from these 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 definitely do not rent a beachfront site.

We always looked forward to a very special lady in the morning, who brought her freshly made breakfast tortillas. In the afternoon, a very nice gentleman would come around with his fresh baked doughnuts.

As well, many local and farmers would bring 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. The fishing village of Puerto Penasco is ideal for those looking for peaceful, friendly beachfront camping ideally located just south of the Arizona border.

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