Summer is almost over but still a lot of sunshine to enjoy and as we say goodbye to this great season, we welcome the cooler weather of the beginning of autumn, a season best known for it´s amazing weather and all the different events that take place in Rocky Point.
It doesn´t matter what you´re interests are there is one event designed for you, from outdoor excursions to gastronomy shows, and sports and culture events as well; remember you´re here to enjoy so come out of your room and play!
We want your next visit to be fantastic, there is much to enjoy, plenty to do and lots of fun on our beaches and centers of interest in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico.
September is just around the corner and full of festivities. “Labor Weekend”, one of the busiest holidays of the year, opens the month big time for our friends from the north, remember to take full advantage of the warm water, this is the best time of the year to enjoy all water sports, whether it is simply snorkeling off Mirador beach, or renting a kayak or a Stand Up Paddle Board, there´s one for you. If salty isn´t your favorite flavor, dozens of swimming pools are ready for you to enjoy. The most important thing is that you and your family enjoy this well deserved break from the daily routines.
Contrary to the belief of many of our friends in the USA, 5 de Mayo is not Mexico´s Independence Day. Every September the whole country dresses up in the flag´s colors to celebrate our Independence from Spain on the 16th, this is the single most important holiday of the year and if you have the luck to be around on those dates, you will be able to enjoy all the activities that take place around the celebration, big fireworks shows, folkloric dances, mariachis, and just a big festive atmosphere around town. There are many “Independence” parties everywhere, in restaurants and in most of the bars, and even at private homes, wherever it is, just make sure to celebrate with us this very Mexican holiday!
