This summer rundown sponsored by FMI Rentals
With one look at the beach over the weekend, or in many an area pool, it is clear that visitors continue to be drawn to Puerto Peñasco’s beaches through the summer. For area hotels and rentals it’s actually one of the busiest times! Humidity and all! Long gone are the times that businesses would close down for the entire summer, however a number of our favorite watering holes and dining spots use the summer months to close for a day or two midweek….or a week or two at a time….or even a month. Be sure to check with your favorite spot for possible changes in hours (see below). In the meantime, let’s run down the weekend.
