Hola Amigos, Puerto Penasco

Hola Amigos,

Welcome to my first blog from beautiful Puerto Penasco, Mexico.  My wife and I are full time residents of this amazing beachfront town.  Originally founded as a shrimping/fishing village Puerto Penasco or as Americans call it Rocky Point has grown into a major tourist destination.  Spectacular condos and beachfront homes make it a very popular place for tourists, investors and owners.  Sandy Beach is the main area for owners and visitors but many other beaches are in the area.  The East Beaches as they are called are popular for freestanding beachfront homes.  If a home is more your speed check out Las Conchas, Playa La Jolla, Playa Encanto, or Playa Miramar

The restaurants here offer something for everyone.  From traditional Mexican cuisine and street tacos to fine dining.  Go see Manny and Gina at Tacos El Grillo for some of the best tacos in town.  Craving good BBQ?  Jesus and his family at Rocky Point BBQ House have great food and are very welcoming.  Several fine dining options are available for a romantic night out.  Try Chef Mickey’s, Pane E Vino, or Mar Blue.  The seafood here is always fresh and is prepared in so many different ways around town.  Ever had Ceviche?  It is a must try.

The city is host to many fun events.  Last week was supposed to be the annual Circus Mexicus.  This is a 4 day rock n roll music festival headlined by Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers (RCPM).  With everything that is going on these days a big music festival had to be put on hold.  One thing the Peacemakers never do is disappoint their loyal fan base.  Tonight they are streaming an online show starting at 8pm PT.  I believe the show will be about 3-4 hours.  Tickets are $20 with proceeds going to a local charity called Steps of Love.  These wonderful volunteers are preparing food bags for local families who find themselves out of work due to the tourism being closed here for 3 months now.  Awesome music and an awesome cause.
