Summertime on the sea! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

peñasco-beauty Summertime on the sea! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!Sponsored this week by Peñasco Beauty Center

It’s hot! No way around it, it’s dang hot…and humid…but not as hot as Phoenix, I guess! Yes, summer in Puerto Peñasco, with August eagerly lurking around the bend to envelope us even further in the cloak of verano. One look at the beaches, or a weekend drive to the Old Port, shows this has been an exceptionally busy summer season and there’s still about a month to go.  So, let’s get to it and run down the weekend!  Plus, check out the ways to pay it forward and give back to the community – particularly with school supply drives!

Giving back

Planning a trip to Rocky Point and wanting to give back to the community? Here are some ideas: AIM School Supply drive  or how about new/lightly used school items for the Club Ecologico school packets? Plus, on Thursday, July 26th there will be a “Clean – Hygiene” Drive for Esperanza Women’s Shelter, and there’s an ongoing  Laundry / Clean-up Drive (detergent, soap, etc.) for Casa Hogar home for the elderly – please contact GRACIAS!
