Truth be told, Puerto Peñasco is packed to the gills for the summer! Just a glance toward popular beaches can give it away, add to that a break in the wind and sunset trips are bound to be packed in coming days! This week also marks the beginning of another effort to solidify flight opportunities to Puerto Peñasco, this time with TAR Airlines (regional airlines) offering Thursday & Sunday routes to Cd. Juárez, Hermosillo, and Tijuana. Also important to note are summer hours at a number of dining spots around town, so let’s run down the weekend.
