I stayed at Cholla bay for a quick trip with my friend and her family. It was nice and quiet in the area. The beach is rocky, but when it’s low tide, there is plenty of sandy beach. When it’s high tide, there isn’t much...More

A short drive from where we stayed. Eclectic houses. Fun bar with seating on terraces with sea view. Found a great little oyster house--will come back there for a full meal.

Not impressed. I ordered a pina colada which came in a plastic 10 oz cup. My daughter had been there at a previous trip and talked it up, but we both left with the mind set of "been there, done that". Because we had a...More

All dirt road and quite dusty everywhere. The beach is hard to get access to. Some nice houses here but they need to pave or gravel the roads.

This is an area a short ways north of town. It is definitely an adventure. Make sure to stop by JJ's Cantina. Tasty food and beach access.

I loved the artsy houses here. It's a very small community- much different than the rest of Puerto Penasco. Two restaurants- one bar. Amazing views. It's far away from the rest of town but quite charming in its own way. It's quiet here and I...More

Cholla Bay is at the end of the road but worth a scenic tour. Many expats have houses here that for the most part sit empty. There is a bar for a cold beer and snack. Watch the fishermen put there boats in and out...More

Cholla Bay has always been a "modest" place, favored by folks looking for a quiet but very reasonable place close to the US. It is sort of like a suburb of Rocky Point. It used to be a very inexpensive place to get a little...More
