Welcome 2014! Here we are, nearing the end of our first full week in the New Year! Whales have already been spotted off the coasts of Puerto Peñasco, providing an extra draw to our winter waters and a great reminder of the “world’s aquarium” just beyond our door. Be sure to check with local tour companies about upcoming trips out at sea! And now, it’s time once more to Rundown the Weekend, so let’s get to it:
Ya es hora para echarle un vistazo a los diferentes eventos programados en Puerto Peñasco! Es el momento de “Recorrer el Fin de Semana estilo puertopeñasquense”.
