Tough Love! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

rocky-point360This Weekend Rundown sponsored by our Rocky Point 360 Business Directory!

Yacht at Sunset in puerto penasco sonoraValentine’s Day, El Día del Amor y de la Amistad – Day of Love and Friendship – falls on Saturday – not to mention it’s a three-day weekend. We’re ready to feel the love across our coasts, desert landscapes, and sea. Admittedly, as in any passionate relationship, there are ups and downs and quite frankly at times we can’t believe what our loved one is doing…though somehow we figure out how to love them through it all. In Puerto Peñasco’s case, this love was tested in some ways this week with the launch of another phase of renovation work along Blvd. Juarez leading to the Old Port, complete with detours along the dock area.  All we ask of our loved one is to check-in, communicate, and let us know what’s going on. (Estimated completion: March 31st).

We’ve got lots of love to share here in Puerto Peñasco, and lots going on through it all so after maneuvering our way over alternate routes to some of our favorite spots in town, let’s run down this Valentine’s and President’s Day Weekend!

Boat adventures and whale watching opportunities!
