3…2…1 Rocky Point NYE Weekend Rundown!

This is it! The final rundown for 2020! We made it…and 2021 is almost here! Whether your New Year’s traditions include champagne toasts, 12 grapes at midnight, black-eyed peas, or donning red underwear for good luck, it may be time to double-up your efforts as we leave 2020 behind us. With an 11 p.m. citywide […]

Eat, drink, & be Merry! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

´Twas the night before Christmas and in every casa, socially distant gatherings took place as all asked ¿qué pasa? With pa in his gloves and I in my mask, we looked back on 2020 – which really took us to task.  All the piñatas and lights helped brightened the mood, while tamales and buñuelos made […]

Deck the palms! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

On the week before Christmas, Rocky Point gave to us: early whale sightings, spectacular sunsets, meteor showers, several holiday gift drives, ornament decorating, wine nights, Christmas and New Year’s dinner reservations, and a Mermaid’s Market at Shrimp Plaza…all socially distanced and masked to the gills. We invite you to join in the holiday season by […]

Keeping the holiday spirit – Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

Can you hear that?  It’s just some of the traditions that would normally be ringing out across the city this time of year: Peregrinaciones (processions/pilgrimages for Virgen de Guadalupe). Posadas (Holiday parties). Piñatas. Ponche.  Still, there’s plenty of holiday spirit around as we count down the rest of 2020, so let’s get to it. Whether […]

Diciembrrrree! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

December. 2020. We are just as much in awe as you are in that: 1, it’s already December and 2, how long this year has been! We’re almost rounding the corner on 2020 to head into 2021 with high hopes, clean hands, and navidad masks. Whether you find yourself in Rocky Point, or catching up […]

Giving Thanks 2020. Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

The holiday season is upon us, as irregular as it may be.  Large gatherings have been swapped for intimate dinners with a handful of family and friends; traditional seasonal “posadas” (holiday parties) are traded out for Secret Santa exchanges and spirited toasts over Zoom. Still, there’s ways to help out around the community for this […]

November Sunshine! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

In the comings and goings of Rocky Point, along with the on-again off-again nature we’ve become (somewhat) accustomed to during Covid, we were sad to hear Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers cancelled this weekend’s upcoming shows in town.  Organizers remarked, “Despite hardships for many, the band feels public safety is a priority for our audience […]

Celebrate Life – Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

This time of year is when U.S. traditions of Halloween melt into Mexico’s commemoration of Day of the Dead. Normally, festivities and memories spill across Puerto Peñasco’s streets, bars, and cemeteries in a colorful display of masks, altars, and catrinas.  While many of these traditions still hold true in this atypical year of Covid-19, festivities […]

Rocky Point Fall Weekend Rundown

It finally felt like Fall in Rocky Point this morning (almost…wait, did it?). Foggy streets greeted early risers as people threw open windows and front doors, wondering if this means we’ve really turned the corner on lingering summer humidity. In a glance at the news, we see the “only essential travel” limit at the US/Mexico/Canada […]

Love the Arts! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Phoenix area has already surpassed a record number of over 100° days! While we may still have some humidity lingering this late into October, Puerto Peñasco is at least 10° – 15° degrees cooler and we’ve got the sea breeze!  Live music continues to ring out under #CoastalDistancing standards in town, and yes, we are […]

Rocky Point Rundown Return!

Greetings once again from the shores of Puerto Peñasco! It has been a minute, indeed. Believe it or not, the last time we pulled out the calendar to run down the weekend together was mid-March! Well, we’ve all been through some stuff together – and mostly apart – over the past few months, haven’t we? […]

The Friday SeaShell Museum reopens to visitors!

Contributor:  Naomi Black Did you know that Rocky Point has a Seashell Museum? This small museum, built in 2017 and opened to the public in January of 2018, houses a private collection of seashells, mostly from the Sea of Cortez. Other shells in the collection are from the Pacific Ocean, while a handful are from […]

#supportlocalbusiness Rocky Point Rundown

Well, we sure didn’t think Spring would roll into Puerto Peñasco like this. As we followed word of the coronavirus (COVID-19) that has been spreading across the globe since early this year, and knew first cases of it were detected in Mexico on just February 28th, our focus turned more towards revisiting how to wash […]

Whenever it rains… Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

The skies opened up over Puerto Peñasco yesterday, seemingly also in mourning after the city was struck by news from the weekend of a tragic bus accident involving young boxers and their trainers. As a community, we come together and continue to celebrate life. A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise funds to […]
