The weather and the water are great with daytime weather being in the mid 80′s. There are plenty of water activities to par take in such as trips to Bird Island via Eco Tours, fishing on the About Time, fishing with Captain Adolpho Perez , sunset cruises on the ever popular El Rey del Mar aka The Pirate Ship, fun for all ages and take a sunset cruise on the Senorita Rita (the newest of the sunset boats). The Seniorita Rita features an open bar as well as Mai Tai’s, Margarita’s and cold draft beer. Rocky Point is the place to celebrate Memorial Day, but don’t forget the meaning of it either.
Don’t like being on the water … can’t imagine why, but you can always go horse back riding on the beach. Don’t forget the ever popular Banana boats. The water should be great for kayaking or snorkeling as well. Bring your beach chairs down and just hang out on the beach and people watch or read a good book, while listening to the tide roll in and out.
If your thing is riding in the desert, there are plenty of places to rent those rhino’s and Quads. Just be careful on them and don’t drive them through the neighborhoods, kicking up as much dust as you can. Drive responsibly and don’t be a statistic.
One more thing is that the Marine Festival starts today and runs through June 5. Many events behind the stadium as well as near the Old Port. This is always a fun filled event. In Spanish it is called Dia de la Marina.
Some tips when you come down, plan on long lines coming into Mexico on Friday and remember those same people will be going back when you do on Sunday, so be prepared to wait. You can go to www.bwt.cbp.gov to check on the crossing wait times. If you can go back late on Monday you should avoid some of the traffic. Remember we have Sam’s Club here, so no need to haul meats and a lot of food that is now prohibited across the border.
Stop by any of our local produce places or out of the back of a truck and get the sweetest watermelons in the world. It is also Mango and Pineapple time. Speaking of Pineapples, try one from the green truck on the corner of Calle 13 and Plutarco Elias Calle.
When you come into Puerto Peñasco from the north, the new overpass is open if you haven’t been here in awhile and makes that intersection that goes to El Golfo/Mayan Palace so much nicer.
As you get near the old airport, notice the huge billboard advertising our biggest event of the year, the 2016 Rocky Point Bike Rally. It will be held November 10th – 13th. Make your plans early as hotels are filling up already. You can now register on line for $20 at www.rockypointrally.com and pick up your package when you arrive here at the registration area by Barklin Gas Station/Circle K. Easy to find, parking lot is filled with bikes. Last year it is estimated we had 8500 bikers from all over the US, Canada and Mexico. Shortly after Memorial Day we will be posting the list of entertainment and tentative schedule of events.
So I invite you to come visit our home city and say to you “Welcome Home”. Have fun and be safe.
