The traditional holiday posadas have come and gone, along with Noche Buena and regalos from Santa. However, in Mexico we’re in the middle of the “Lupe-Reyes” marathon, which means ongoing holiday spirit and fiestas up through Kings Day on Jan. 6th. Next up on the calendar is Día de los Inocentes (Dec. 28th), which is similar to April Fool’s day in the U.S. so keep watch for any extra trickery that day (or silly news stories). As we move into the last week of 2014, plenty of folk are also planning how to ring in 2015 so let’s jump in and rundown this final holiday stretch!
Off into the sunset
EcoFun Rentals – Now that Christmas Day winds have died down, EcoFun is wrapping up the final weekend of 2014 by offering sunset cruises both Friday and Saturday evenings (Dec. 26th, 27th) starting at 4:30 p.m. from the docks. Plus, if you haven’t been to Bird Island (Isla San Jorge) in 2014 you still have a chance with trips departing at 7 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 28th and Monday, Dec. 29th. For information and reservations, contact email@example.com and/or visit their office inside Baja Cantina Hotel.
2015 is right around the corner and so are a whole bunch of New Year’s Eve parties! Plus, be sure to check with your favorite restaurant or watering hole as to special NYE dinners and toasting in 2015.
