It’s gettin’ hot in here! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

ecofunThis weekend’s rundown sponsored by EcoFun Rentals

Summer is beginning to cloak Puerto Peñasco in highs topping upper 80s and low 90s, while humidity levels are hovering around 50%. The local school year has come to an end and the summer vacation season has officially begun! Curiously, though there aren’t as many big weekend events to dart between, this is actually one of the busiest times for area hotels as vacation breaks from the U.S. and Mexico overlap and more and more families are headed for our beaches! Here at RockyPoint 360 we have a few more rundowns in us before taking a “summer break”, so let’s get to it and rundown the weekend!

  • Sonoyta – Peñasco overpass construction near turn-off to coastal highway
  • Entrance to Puerto Peñasco (Blvd. Juarez) still rough as final paving work continues at intersection of Blvd. Juarez / Blvd. Samuel Ocaña / Blvd. Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez
  • Sidewalk and curb work being down along paved areas near City Hall leading toward Old Port. Still some patches of packed dirt awaiting finish.
  • Road “patching” work along highway East of town toward Mayan Palace. DRIVE CAREFULLY!
