5 de mayo Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored this week by Las Palomas Beach & Golf Resort

Cinco de Mayo weekend in Puerto Peñasco. No, it’s not Mexican Independence Day – but rather, commemorates the Battle of Puebla against the French in 1862. Still, with May filled with several festivities (Labor Day May 1st, Mother’s Day 10 de mayo, Teacher’s Day May 15th…) 5 de mayo fiestas have become common place (generally more so North of the border than South…except in Puebla of course).  We’ve made it to May, so let’s get right to it and run down the weekend…and for many, a bit of Cinco de Drinko…after a little swim, cycle, and run!
