The summer weather is sneaking up on us in Puerto Peñasco, though humidity remains at bay and evenings are absolutely marvelous! We even hear there’s a “cold” front expected to come through in another week or so before things start to heat up. This means the water temperatures are great, golf courses are green, sunrises are early and sunsets stretch out beyond 7 p.m. across the Sea of Cortes. Let’s get to the weekend rundown!
Uniting Nations Cup – May 17th – 19th
For a third year in a row, amateur golfers from the U.S. and Mexico will meet up on the pristine Jack Nicklaus design Peninsula course at Mayan Palace for a friendly though intense competition to see which country is set to take home the UNC this year. The U.S. team was crowned UNC champions in 2011, followed by a rousing come back by the Mexican team in 2012. Who will the 2013 Champions be?

What began with a flurry of mermaid artists at Plaza del Camarón in the Fall of 2012 will wrap up its first “Arts Season” this Saturday at the place where it all began. Some of the fantastic options to see at the Mermaid’s Market include glass jewelry, stunning photography, recreated/upcycled clothing, candles, chocolate, often there’s also hand-roasted coffee, hand-crafts from the Manos de Dios women’s group of the San Rafael Community Center, ironwork, creative landscaping ideas made from recycled tires, and more! We hear you can even get your picture taken as a mermaid this weekend! Be sure to stop by and say hello to all the mermaids….they’ll be back in the Fall!
