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? […]

#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 […]

Fins up! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Still having a whale of time in Puerto Peñasco!  The whales (mostly fin and humpback) are still skirting near our shores, much to the delight of local tour companies, residents, and visitors alike. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to catch some tail during the 2020 whale-watching season, which officially is through April 1st though […]

Whatcha got? AMOR! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

¡AMOR! With Valentine’s Day on a Friday, coupled with the US Presidents Day 3-day weekend, what’s there not to love?  Following the tremendous dousing Puerto Peñasco received this week, the sporadic lakes around town are hopefully drying out as things are heating up.  There’s plenty going on around town this weekend, so let’s get to […]

Snow Moon? Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

This febrero has taken a turn for friiio this week, so be sure to keep warm inside and out.  Possibly it’s because of February’s full “Snow Moon” (Feb. 8th – first super moon of 2020), or just a reminder we are indeed still in winter.  Stay warm at your favorite watering hole this weekend, or […]

Bowl-ing Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Get out the chips and dip! Guacamole y tostadas! Cerveza y tequila!

Each year, one of the tell-tale signs of launching into a new season of good spirits and live music in Puerto Peñasco is Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers’ January Jam! Yes, that would be this weekend!  Plus, January also means it’s time to warm up with the annual Chili Cook-Off at Playa de Oro RV […]
