Sponsored this week by “Ellie de la Playa“
As you roll around Puerto Peñasco these days, you’ll surely see vestiges of recent rainy weather we’ve been having. Doesn’t seem to have dampened any spirits however, particularly as Puerto Peñasco was just recently named by Forbes magazine as one of the top 10 Spring Break destinations for 2019 (that’s true)! As we dive into this weekend’s rundown, better get out that calendar as we’ve got a whole list of SAVE the DATES from now through Circus Mexicus! Here’s hoping everyone gets lucky (safely) as St. Patty’s day comes and goes. Let’s run down the weekend! Oh, and Monday March 18th is a Bank Holiday – in honor of early Mexican President Benito Juarez’s birthday on March 21st!
