No, you want to be closer to town in one of the condotels on "Sandy Beach." See www.puerto-penasco.com

Mayan Palace is 20 miles out of town.

Be careful, it isn't safe in Mexico! Also, watch out for the speed traps.

Yep, the mayan is way the heck out there. find something closer if you want to be close to the party. Speed trap issues in Sonoyta after you cross the border from lukeville. The local policia have a hand held radar gun that they will usually set up just outside of town. And I expect the federals will have a check point set up before you get to Penasco.

My wife and I just returned from Rocky point. Probably the best trip in the 20 years that I've been going there. Thanks to all the people that go around, saying it's not safe there, we didn't have to deal with any crowds and had a very peaceful stay.

BTW, Mayan is pretty far. You may want to look at old town or nearby places, like Manny's at the economy end of the scale and a house in Las Conchas at the high end. Enjoy your stay.
