For those of you who have never been here or have only dreamed of being here, you will see some pictures of the beauty and fun things to do in Puerto Penasco. Step 1 is to make you room reservation in advance. This is especially true over major holidays like Easter and Memorial Day and Bike Week. I say this because we have so many people visiting here from all over the world and they all plan in advance. If you haven’t been here try 1 of the 4 Sonoran Resorts. All rooms face directly to the ocean. Imagine your self having your morning coffee or at sunset having a glass of wine over looking the ocean. All rentals are complete with everything except YOU. When you open your condo door, all you will be able to say is WOW. Las Palomas is also water front and has a “lazy river” for the kids.
Once you have settled in, you can check with the front desk to see about renting kayaks or walk down to the beach to see about a horse back ride on the beach, this is so much fun to do. You will be surrounded by vendors who will want to braid your hair, write your name on a grain of rice or just plain sell you something. They have excellent quality silver jewelry and the prices are good but you can always barter. When our grand daughter Morgan was small, we explained to her that this was how people made money, so rather than barter, if the vendor wanted $5.00 we gave him $8.00. What can I say? There will be vendor selling tamales and tacos or burritos so please try them, you will not be disappointed. If that does not sound good to you, the SKY, SUN and SEA have swim up bars that also sell light fare, this is always good.
Puerto Penasco is the perfect place for a wedding on the beach. Playa Bonita Hotel did one for my family, you’ll see the picture here a couple of years ago.. The food was wonderful and the band outstanding. Nothing prettier than a beach wedding near sunset. They have several packages to choose from. The Sonoran Resortsuse outside caterers such as Ramon, Jerry’s or Chef Mickey. All make the wedding such a wonderful experience. Whether you are in the wedding party or a guest, you can get your hair and nails done here at any of our great shops. All of the resorts have Spa’s so you can relax before your big day. It is very easy to buy a gift here from Su Casa or Mercedes Rusticos in the Old Port. We have several great cake makers here that will not disappoint you. Remember when coming across the border about how much beer or liquor you bring in and only 1 qt going back per person. No need to haul it down.. go to Crucero Liquors just across the railroad tracks on Benito Juarez. Glen has a huge selections of wine, liquor and beer.
Again, I remind you, Puerto Penasco is a very safe place to come and hold your weddings, anniversary or any special occasion. Hope to see you soon. VIVA MEXICO! Beverly Arrowood
