Tee up! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

This weekend rundown sponsored by The Links at Las Palomas Beach & Golf Resort

Temps just north of the border are creeping up into the 100 range, meanwhile here in Puerto Peñasco we’re hovering somewhere between sunny and pleasant in the mid 80s. Yes, May is one of the BEST weather months of the year, so come on down! Before we start running down the weekend, Congratulations to The Links at Las Palomas Beach & Golf Resort on their SOLD OUT golf tournament this weekend, celebrating their 10th Anniversary. ¡Felicidades! Ok, let’s do this –it’s time to run down the weekend!
