10 de mayo – Mother’s Day in Mexico. This is perhaps one of the most important dates on the calendar. While there are no parades going through town, as on Revolution Day in November, or bells ringing out across city plazas, as on Independence Day in September, el 10 de mayo is celebrated across Mexico and Latin America with flowers, serenades, gifts, and of course a special night out or family breakfast. Feliz día de las madres a todas las madres! In the U.S., we continue the celebrations of Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 12th, so Happy Mother’s Day to you all!

In addition to amazing days and nights at any of Rocky Point’s great beaches, here are our top ideas to help celebrate with Mom this weekend!

1. Take in a meal! Look for dinner and drink specials across town today, and through the weekend, in celebration of Mom! Live music is a sure plus at many of our favorite spots!

2. Spa! Spa! Spa!  Peñasco’s spa options continue to grow, beckoning all to enjoy a moment of relaxation and peace along our desert/ocean shores.

3. NaturArte Tours with CEDO – this Mother’s Day weekend the Intercultural Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans (CEDO) offers their weekly Saturday Natural History Talk (2 p.m. en español and 4 p.m. in English). On the 10th they were headed out for an Oyster Experience with local women’s Oyster Cooperatives and on Saturday, May 11th, there’s a chance to explore the Morua Estuary (9 am – 1 pm) or on Monday, the 13th, you may opt for Hiking the Sand Dunes at the Pinacate (7 am – 1 pm).  Reservations and questions – contact CEDO:  382-0113 or in the US (520) 320-5473  info@cedointercultural.org

Take Mom to the Pinacate!  The new museum features at the Schuk Toak Visitors Center of the Pinacate Reserve offer an amazing tour through the volcanic landscape just beyond our shores.

5. Take in a movie! CitiCinemas in town has 6 theaters offering movies for the entire family, dubbed in Spanish or in English with Spanish subtitles, plus 3D!  For movie times, visit www.citicinemas.com  Select city and once inn Puerto Peñasco, select “cartelera” (movie times) *subject to change*.
