Ahhh-pril! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

islas-del-mar-featured-banner Ahhh-pril!  Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored this week by The Club @ Islas del Mar

You would think with Spring Break ending, Puerto Peñasco would once again be a sleepy fishing village – maybe for a day.  Not so!  As April begins, one look at the calendar shows us there’s plenty to do …and that’s all before Semana Santa!  People have asked us if we’re concerned about the idea of border closures, and we know we are on the fun side of the border – yes, and with the tequila and avocados!  Let’s sit back, take in the sand, music, fiesta, and flavor of Puerto Peñasco as we roll through April…and run down the weekend!

This weekend!
