February’s frigid fervor is gone and temps are finally warming up, just in time for Carnaval along with Spring Break shenanigans. Local cruise operators tell us whales can still be spotted relatively near Puerto Peñasco, though distances are getting a bit further out – so be sure to hop on a whale watching cruise as soon as you can before the season ends. In the meantime, let’s run down the weekend and ¡VIVA Peñasco Carnaval!
