Jellyfish & Stingrays in Rocky Point, Mexico

Stingrays and Jellyfish are in our beautiful waters in Rocky Point, Mexico and if you are too close they can sting. 

Both are hard to see in the water, so you will want to shuffle your feet (aka Stringray Shuffle) while you are in the water and keep your eye out for the blue floating buttons.   

Below are some tips to soothe the sting if you are stung:

Stingray:
- Flush the wound with fresh water
- Soak the wound is as hot as water as you can tolerate

- Use tweezers to remove stingers

- You can seek medical attention and AmeriMed on Sandy Beach will treat and give an injection in the puncture for approximately $150.00  ($50 for office visit and $100 for shot and meds)

 

Jellyfish:
- VERY Important how you remove the tentacles: Don't use your hands or rub or scratch.  Use a credit card or something flat to peel off the tentacles otherwise they will keep stinging

- Stabilize the PH levels by using Windex which has ammonia 

- Never use regular water on the area only use saline or seawater

- You can seek medical attention and cost and treatment is similar at AmeriMed


AmeriMed
-Location: On Sandy Beach before you arrive at Bella Sirena and just after the Sonoran Sea Resort.

Princesa Resort Amenities & Inventory in Rocky Point, Mexico
                                    ---  PRINCESA DE PENASCO ----
A well known and popular resort for visitors who have been coming to Rocky Point, Mexico for some time. Princesa was the first resort to pop up on Sandy Beach back in 1999. This resort draws a lot of "families" to vacation here.

I believe the draw is the large green landscaped common area, beach volleyball courts, clubhouse and because it is a low density condo project consisting of approximately 220 condominiums.

Princesa Resort has very limited inventory with ONLY 8 condos for sale in the entire resort!  

 

Princesa has a variety of amenities which include:

3 Pools -  3 Jacuzzis - Fitness Center - Clubhouse - Beach Volley Ball Courts - Restaurant -
