las palomas sponsor bannerAs we begin with this Weekend Rundown, a quick glance at the calendar tells us we’re just under a month away from the launch of AeroMéxico flights between Puerto Peñasco, Las Vegas, and Hermosillo! Today representatives from Puerto Peñasco, alongside Sonoran tourism officials and Governor Padrés, are in Las Vegas signing final papers and agreements to make sure the project gets off the ground on June 20th as planned. Schedules and fees can already be found on the site of the local Convention and Visitors Bureau –and flights will be ready to go just as we enter Mexico’s high tourism season with schools letting out!aeromexico flight banner
