Salud! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

banditosThis Weekend Rundown sponsored by Banditos

It’s the time of the year where, for those of us who live here full time, we begin to welcome back the “Summer escapees” as they roll back to the beach while temps cool off up north. The sea continues to be warm enough for water activities galore, the skies are beautiful, and well…what else can we say about our sunsets?  This weekend is once again full of adventures, so hold onto your Octoberfest cerveza or vino and let’s run down the weekend!

Driver’s note: Bumpy “rough road” between KM 15 – KM 30 just south of Sonoyta when heading to Rocky Point. Watch for SAND on Coastal Highway towards el Golfo.
