Thanksgiving Dinner in Puerto Peñasco

Soon Thanksgiving will be upon us and the weather is beautiful in Puerto Peñasco. The RV Parks of Playa Bonita, Playa del Oro and the Reef are already filling up.  Although this is an American holiday, restaurants here cater to our celebration.   For many the celebration of Thanksgiving is one of cooking or smoking the Turkey, making all the trimmings and have large gatherings of friends and family.  For other’s it is the one time of the year, where some choose to avoid cooking and prefer to have someone else do it for them.

Many of the RV’ers choose to cook the turkeys in their RV and then share with all of their group of friends.  One such group from Green Valley, AZ has been doing this for many years and now are  over 10 rigs coming down.  What a better way to spend the day than sitting on the beach enjoying drinks, great food and friendships while watching the Sea of Cortez go by.  If you decide to cook at home, the border side of Mexico has been allowing us to bring in 1 turkey as they recognize our holiday.  With all the fresh fruit and vegetables, there is no need to haul anything else down.  If you want to order a turkey here, CS Food Services are taking orders.  Give Michelle a call at 388-6556 or stop by (orders are being placed November 11, 2017). They will have Butterball and Hormel.  The Butterballs average 18 lbs and are aprx.$780 pesos, the Hormel brand is average 12 Lbs at aprx.$360 pesos. Cranberry jelly for a 14 oz can is $42 pesos and Pumpkin Pies are $260 pesos.  CS also carries butter, heavy cream, dinner rolls and a lot of other things to make you Thanksgiving Day a success.  CS is located off Kino Blvd right in front of Numeros.  Sam’s Club has turkeys already, but the are partially smoked and if they are the same as last year had some sort of gelatin covering them.

Things to bring from the USA would be canned pumpkin if you prefer to make your own pies like I do, disposable metal roasting pans, canned or fresh sweet potatoes, cranberries or Pumpkin pies from like COSTCO.  If you like to add oysters to your stuffing, this is the place to get them right from the oyster beds.

Another favorite is Puesta del Sol at Playa Bonita.  If you are staying in the RV Park and choose not to cook, this is a great alternative for you.  You still have a great view without the muss and fuss.  You can have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner or choose to have it catered and they have several options available for you.  Thanksgiving dinner at Puesta del Sol is $12.00 and complete with all the trimmings.

My Favorite Beach Activities

Rocky Point has an incredible beach and there are several activities you can do while you are here for your vacation!
The tide cycles in Rocky Point make the beach very unique and constantly different throughout the entire day. Some of the things I like to do when there is low tide are:
–       Set up some small goals with shoes, beach towels, or actual little soccer goals and play soccer with your friends! When the tide is low you can run around a huge area that is flat and open, which is perfect for a little game of soccer.

–       Play paddle ball. Paddle ball is a simple game where you and a partner hit a ball back forth with each other and see how many times you can hit it back and forth without dropping it. This game can provide entertainment for hours! I have found myself playing this game for hours without realizing how much time passed by.

–       Skimboard! When the tide is low there a little areas and pools that form which are perfect for skimboarding. If you want to try a new and challenging sport I definitely recommend trying skimboarding. Be warned though that this is a dangerous sport and if you fall you can seriously injure yourself. Start off slow and then you will progress accordingly.

When the tide comes up there are a bunch of new activities that you can try and enjoy. The ones that I have personally found to be the most enjoyable are:
–       Rent a jet ski. Even though the hourly rates for a jet ski are slightly expensive, it’s worth it. Riding a jet ski through the Sea of Cortes is amazing! Make sure you are safe though and never doing any dangerous maneuvers. It is very easy to find people to rent jet skis from they are.

–       Ride the banana boat. Banana boats are all along the beach in Rocky Point and they are only $5/person! It’s about a 6-10 minute ride and you better hold on tight! My biggest advice for the banana boat is to make sure that if you fall, protect your face. Falling on the banana boat is very common and generally safe. Just be careful if it happens and make sure you protect yourself!

–       Parasailing. This is one of the activities that you HAVE to try here in Rocky Point. You get to see the beautiful Sonoran Resorts, beaches, and people from 300 ft in the air! It is awesome to be able to have a birds eye view on the surrounding area.

These are just a few suggestions for you guys on activities that I have come to personally enjoy. You may find a different activity that you enjoy more, but I definitely recommend trying at least a few of these when you go down to Rocky Point for vacation.
