Sponsored this week by Rocky Point 360 Business Directory. Are you in it?
Semana Santa. Holy Week. Yes, it’s one of the busiest times of the year around town with some folk opting to take in more tranquil sun off the popular beaches, and others heading right into the thick of things on the malecón or the playa for a busy weekend of música, beach, and sol! Water continues to be a sticky point in these parts, following a pipe burst early in the week – though official word points to normal service to resume soon all over town. So, save water and bathe with a friend, and let’s run down the weekend.
