Yes, I get to say it at least once a year.

Puerto Peñasco’s beaches, sunsets, and shimmering sea, can bring out the romance in all of us. You simply have to open your eyes and experience everything our seaside village has to offer.

So, whether you have your life partner already, looking for a sweetheart or found one but haven’t made the move, here are some ideas on what you can do in Peñasco for Valentine’s Day.

First and foremost, plan a romantic weekend at the sea. If you’re already here, the biggest expense is out of the way. If you’re in a neighboring state, it’s a simple road trip with a plethora of accommodations available. Many great overnight deals are being offered in February, check out to find a place that meets your budget. This is a weekend get-away that could be good for your health. Plan a romantic gesture and surprise your loved one with sea time. In the midst of all the restrictions due to the pandemic, you could safely get a little time away and rent a condo on the beach in Rocky Point.

Surprise the one you love. I mean if you’re going to stay at home, or work from home, why not stay at home in a cozy condo, where you have easy access to an uncrowded sea, beach, and clean air. You can change your environment and still be safe. It is good to get a breath of sea air. It’s also Valentine month and whale watching season so what better sweet surprise than a road trip to the sea.

Once, you get here, what can you do to capture the moment? I have a few ideas for romantic fun, that will cost you nothing but time.

You do however need a vehicle to drive around in, and a smart phone or heck go old school and grab any camera to capture the romantic memories.
