This week’s rundown sponsored by RPR Mexico – with spots still available for November’s Rocky Point Rally!
Colorful hobie cats dart across the sea by day, while twinkling lights of shrimp boats dot the horizon each night. Ah yes, October in Rocky Point. There’s still much to do as we ease into this perfect Fall weather. Grab your golf clubs, paddle board, kayak, camera, race car, or just a towel and let’s run down the weekend and see what’s ahead in Rocky Point.
Driver’s note: Bumpy “rough road” between KM 15 – KM 30 just south of Sonoyta when heading to Rocky Point (not as many pot holes, just bumpy over where they used to be). Watch for SAND on Coastal Highway towards el Golfo.
