Perhaps it’s a nod to St. Patrick Day coming up, but the state of Sonora has achieved green status on Mexico’s health alert map! We’ve come quite a way since exactly one year ago, when everything started shutting down during the early days of the pandemic. Yet, here we are! Beaches are open and, in a blink of an eye or a flash of a mask, official Spring is almost here. Spring Break is in full swing, the whales for the most part have left for the season (we do hear about a glimpse every now and then – but at a distance), and vaccines are making their way to our corner of the country. What a year!
Get out your calendars and let’s run down what’s up in Rocky Point! (NOTE: The Rocky Point Triathlon at Las Palomas scheduled for April has been postponed to 2022)
Keep in mind!
- Spring Break / Semana Santa Curfew change in effect Feb. 26th – March 14th and again March 29th – April 4th: Monday – Thursday midnight – 6:00 a.m. / Friday – Sunday 1 a.m. – 6 a.m.
- Masks required in all public spaces in Rocky Point, and if there are 2 or more people in a car
