Summer @ Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

There’s a heat wave just about everywhere these days! It sure feels that way in Rocky Point, with over 60% humidity, but we haven’t technically hit 3 digits and next week is only aiming for the mid-90s°F.  Sunrise and sunset walks are still very much a thing as those in the know can already sense […]

96 years young! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

¡Feliz aniversario a Puerto Peñasco! We’ve hit that part of the summer – right after 4th of July and just before schools start back up again in AZ (really, late July – are you kidding?) Family vacation time is in full swing, particularly weekends, and there is still plenty of live music, good food, sun […]

It’s Summer! Weekend Rundown

Summer is here! Yes, officially! Summer solstice on Wednesday marked the beginning of summer. Seemingly word really got out and it’s heating up.  But hey, the humidity hasn’t kicked in yet this way and the sea is super inviting right about now.  Every weekend seems to see more folks making their way down to Arizona’s […]

Fathers Day RP Weekend Rundown

Just this past week I started to turn the A/C on in the office – mid June, are you kidding me?  I’m used to doing that business in late April or early May in Rocky Point! Indeed, it is near perfect weather still as we head into a 3 day weekend, honoring Juneteenth in the […]

Circus hits Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

One of the most highly anticipated weekends in Rocky Point is here! Well, it kicked off Thursday – and to be honest there were some warm-up sessions earlier – so really, one of the most highly anticipated WEEKS is happening now!  It’s Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers’ Circus Mexicus!  Plus, Sunday marks the wrap-up of […]

Welcome June! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

Puerto Peñasco welcomed June with the traditional honoring of Día de la Marina and laying of wreaths at sea and in the Old Port. As a port city with a rich history of fishing as its first main economic activity, and home to a Naval base, June 1st is a well honored tradition in town […]

Memorial Day Weekend Rundown 2023

It’s Memorial Day Weekend in Rocky Point! It almost doesn’t seem like we could be at the end of May since many of us still don’t have our AC running full blast…and yet, here we are. It looks to be a near perfect weather weekend with lows around 70°F and highs of 82°F, so be […]

Music! Memorial Warm Up – Weekend Rundown

Rocky Point has always attracted musicians and bands from near and far to grace our shores. In relatively more recent years, the local music scene has burst across a growing number of stages and new venues around town.  In this lead up to Memorial Day weekend, it’s the perfect time to catch local musicians in […]

Oh mama! Mother’s Day Weekend Rundown

Check any local school calendar in town and you’ll see May is a month full of celebrations. Kicking off with Mexican Labor Day (May 1st), we zoom right past 5 de mayo (Battle of Puebla) but not before a nod to construction workers on May 3rd (Día de la Santa Cruz), and then straight into […]

5 de mayo – Weekend Rundown

As avid travelers and aficionados of all things Mexico, it’s worth remembering 5 de mayo celebrations commemorate the 1862 Battle of Puebla when the Mexican army defeated the French in Puebla de Zaragoza.  With all the hoopla on the northern side of the border, some may mistake 5 de mayo for Mexico’s Independence Day, yet […]

Weekend Rundown – Swim Bike & Run like a Child!

The weather is just near perfect as we wrap up April. Good thing, as this is a long holiday weekend in Mexico, with Labor Day on May 1st  (banks and offices closed). Children’s Day on April 30th provides for some additional reasons to get out and play! So, let’s run down the weekend! Travel note:  […]

Rocky Point January Rundown!

..and just like that, it is January 2022. Last year did not hold back as it washed its way out to sea, taking much of Puerto Peñasco’s streets and electricity with it. For most, the power outage only lasted about 3 hours, though clean-up efforts still continue across the community. Numerous homes, offices, and organizations […]

December Rocky Point Rundown

December kicked off with the nightly pilgrimages in honor of Mexico’s patron saint, the Virgen de Guadalupe. The evening processionals, departing from the Old Port each day at 5 p.m. (Dec 1st-11th), wind their way to the Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe Church on Ave. Simon Morua, often accompanied by fireworks and music.  This all leads […]

Novvrooomber Rocky Point Rundown

¡Noviembre! We are in that small stretch between Halloween fiestas along with Day of the Dead commemorations, before we round the corner toward the Rocky Point Rally (this year Nov. 11 – 14).  Yet, this weekend continues to rock…rock ‘n roll to be exact. The Black Moods, who have played across local venues for nearly […]

May Rocky Point Rundown!

My, oh my, it’s May! The days are sunny, the sea breeze is inviting, and the water is getting warm. It has been an active Spring in Rocky Point, and we’re just gearing up as the Summer nears. The first weekend of May welcomed back hobie cats, more live music, plus golf and volleyball tournaments […]
