Do not bring whale bones back to USA from Mexico!
There are at least three popular beaches in Rocky Point.
You can find whale bones at Sandy beach but please do not bring this back to the USA as it is illegal.
There is also the Playa Hermosa Beach which is best explored at low tide when you can see pools of fish, octopus, squid, crabs, and coral enmeshed with sea plants. And there is of course the traditional beach of Playa Hermosa.
But just be aware that whichever beach you choose, be aware of the marine life and that some of them are not supposed to be touched! %c
This is the pedistrian bridge over the main road into town. We had to go the the bank one day and found ourselves having to use it.
This seems to be indicative of the general up-keep of things in Rocky Point. The popular restaurants and bars seem to keep up on things pretty well, but otherwise you kind of have to just take things as they are. There's not too much cause for alarm, as most things are functional and clean, though not asthetically pleasing.
Mexico has been known as the land of no rules for a long time, but it seems that the locals are pretty sick of gringos crossing the border and causing a ruckus.
On our way to dinner one night we were stopped, along with everyone else driving on the main road, at a DUI checkpoint. It's still unclear to me exactly what the laws are in Mexico, our cabbie told us that you could have an open container in the car just as long as you weren't driving, but it's better to be safe than sorry in a Mexican jail, so I'd suggest just not drinking and driving, period.
