Holy! Week! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored this week by Playa Bonita Resort

Holy Week. Semana Santa. It’s a time to celebrate traditions, such as Friday’s Stations of the Cross reenactment in the Old Port, not to mention the tradición of bandas across the malecón, fiestas on the playa, and welcoming every amigo, primo, and family member into homes across the city. It’s quite possibly the busiest weekend in Rocky Point, though you may be able to find solace out there somewhere…around sunrise…on a far away beach…or the golf course…  Happy Easter weekend to all, and let’s run down the weekend!
