Nearly 45,000 visitors, primarily from the U.S., are expected to visit Puerto Peñasco’s beaches over Memorial Day Weekend with area hotels and rental options registering reservations at more than 90%.
According to information from the local Convention and Visitors Bureau (OCV), some hotels are already 100% booked while others have over 60% in reservations for the weekend.
The OCV expects the U.S. Memorial Day Weekend to rate 10 points higher than in 2014, when nearly 35,000 tourists visited the area. The majority of visitors during this period are entire families, as well as smaller groups of younger adults.
This weekend is considered to be one of the highest peak tourism periods for Puerto Peñasco, following Semana Santa and Spring Break.
Promotional efforts of Puerto Peñasco in recent months have focused principally on social networking and websites.
