Where to go for Christmas & New Year’s in Rocky Point 2017

While many families traditionally enjoy New Year’s Eve in Mexico with a family dinner at home, there are ever more options around town for dinner, dancing, and a regular fiesta to ring in the año nuevo!  Plus, it’s good to keep in mind that Christmas Eve is traditionally the night families in Mexico get together for the big family dinner (late night), so many restaurants and businesses may close up shop early on the 24th and check for modified hours / closures on the 25th.

If you’re looking to spend Navidad in Puerto Peñasco, and still wondering what to do to ring in 2018, we’ve put together some info to help you plan.

    Enjoy the comfortable glow of candles and Christmas lights inside as dining service begins at 5pm from regular menu. Help light the very first “Banditos’ Blaze” in parking lot at 8pm.  House band “The Summer” jamming all night starting at 9 pm    The first “Piñata of Woe” will be open and waiting to receive everyone’s worries and troubles.
