PacoVillalpandoIt was quite thrilling to welcome Francisco Villapando, or “Paco” as he likes to be called, to Laguna Shores Resort this past June 27th. Francisco was a passenger among one of the first flights to land at Rocky Point’s International Airport on AeroMexico’s flights which started June 20th, 2013. (There are now two weekly scheduled flights – every Sunday and Thursday – to and from Hermosillo, Mexico and to and from Las Vegas, Nevada.)

Francisco is a very jovial man and quite the adventurer. I won’t reveal his age, but let’s just say that he is over the age when people retire and receive their Social Security checks. Francisco is a dealer at a casino in Las Vegas and saw advertisements in local Las Vegas newspapers about flights to Rocky Point, Mexico. He spoke with his travel agent and they used Amadeus to connect into Laguna Shores booking system through InnLink. He said Laguna Shores Resort offered the best deal around and when driven by a much larger resort on Sandy Beach he admitted that he was very happy he chose Laguna Shores.

So, we just wanted to give Paco a little nod and thank him for coming to Rocky Point, Mexico and staying at Laguna Shores Resort. He enjoyed his time here and we hope he will return and tell his friends and customers all about the town and our resort. Also thank you to the City of Puerto Peñasco for placing advertisements in the Las Vegas newspapers. I’m sure we will be seeing a lot of new visitors.

Taxis are cheaper when running around town – $3 USD or so, but if you plan on doing much sightseeing it would be worth it to rent a vehicle for the length of your stay.
