Rocky Point isn't as bad as you might think. Most people speak some English and friendly. I usually camp at The Reef Campground which is north of the condos on the beach. It's more of an RV park but the owners are pretty good and will accommodate a biker with a tent. Each time I've stayed there I got a beach site which is a few dollars more but worth the views. The vendors who wander up and down the beach are a pain.

Food is plentiful and pretty cheap in RP. There is a Mexican restaurant on top of the hill with a great view at sunset. Another place to eat is a Pollo open air restaurant on the main road on the right before you get to town.

The town is pretty safe and the cops normally won't hassle you. The rule is lay off the Gringos it hurts the economy. The biggest problem in RP is petty thefts I think there has been only one American killed there in the last 15 years BUT I haven't been there since 2007 and haven't kept up with the news.

Thanks for the dining tips...I am currently in Southern AZ and will probably go down just to check it out. Buy insurance and gas in Lukeville and then go down and camp for a couple of days

What you thought were sharks were most likely dolphins.
