How to Get to Puerto Penasco, Senora, Mexico
Most guests fly into Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. The airport code is PHX.
There is a private shuttle service, Head Out To Rocky Point, that picks up everyone at 1pm at the airport. They cross the border into Mexico and take everyone directly to the boat. Upon return, all guests are picked up at 7:30 am and arrive at the airport at approximately 11:30 am. The price for this round-trip transportation is $125 per person and guests book this directly:
At the border, guests will need to purchase a Mexican Tourist Card (FFM). The cost for this is approximately $36 US in cash. They do not provide change. All passengers must provide an FMM or the boat cannot leave the port.
There are options within Mexico and they are in order of preference:
OPTION 1 (Most popular option)
Guests can fly into Hermosillo (airport code HMO). From the airport, your guests can take a cab to the bus station Albatros (www.albatrosautobuses.com). There are several buses a day and it takes about 5-6 hours. Your guest will need to take the 7 am departure in order to arrive at Puerto Peñasco for Rocio del Mar’s boarding time of 5 pm.
OPTION 2 (Second most popular option)
Fly into Mexicali and rent a car. You will want to rent a car for the round trip because the same-day drop-off fee is outrageous. There is secure parking next to the marina for $5 per day.
Guests can fly into Mexicali. This option is very rough travel; i.e. third world travel. From the airport, they will need to take a taxi to ABC bus station, about a 30 min taxi drive, estimate 500 pesos. ABC bus has only 1 bus scheduled to Puerto Peñsaco for late flight arrivals. The bus doesn’t leave until approximately 1 am and arrives in Puerto Peñasco at 6 am. That means guests would have to wait at the bus station until departure. The bus station is daunting, and you travel all night. Then they need to find something to do until Rocio del Mar’s boarding time of 5 pm.
If the flight arrives early at Mexicali, there are more buses. We highly recommend making a bus reservation online otherwise the guests stand in line at the bus terminal for a ticket.
