Puerto Penasco recommendation

We are thinking of spending about 6 wks. in Puerto Penasco next Jan. & Feb. and need recommendations re. campgrounds. It will be one of the three with beachfront available, but all look somewhat stark and cramped compared to the state parks we are spoiled by, and most online recommendations are several years old. Does anyone here have recent experience? I do comprende that this is Mexico.

We have stayed at Playa Bonita RV Park in Puerto Peņasco four times over the last couple of years. It's owned and operated by the Playa Bonita Hotel on the beach north of town, and is situated between the Playa Bonita Hotel and its neighboring high rise hotel up the beach.

The RV Park is pretty much a large parking area with rows of RV hookups ... no trees or shelters to speak of ... with the more desirable back-in "beach-front" sites along a cement sidewalk between the beach and the RV Park. The sites are close together, as they are in most commercial RV places (we are spoiled by state parks and national forest campgrounds, too). There's a short retaining wall, then the beach with white sand and the ocean. They have full hookups.

As far as a "recommendation" goes, I don't know if Playa Bonita is any better or worse than other potential accommodations in Puerto Peņasco, but we have enjoyed our stays there, but we were there with Airstream friends, which has something to do with that. The hotel has a decent restaurant and it's not too far from town.

There are also quite a few more long-term American and Canadian visitors there ... folks who stay a couple of months or longer.

You can see travel logs of our 2010 and 2011 trips there on our travel log (link below)...

Hope this helps!
