We are home safe and sound from a quick trip to Puerto Peñasco, Sonora Mexico with another couple. I was having anxiety over the trip because it’s the first time spending more than an hour or two with these new friends. I wrote about that HERE.
My worries were for naught. Mostly because of the condo we stayed in. It had two master suites with patios, plus a shared kitchen and living room with an expansive patio between the bedrooms. We weren’t on top of each other. We were steps from pools, hot tubs and the beach. Sometimes we went to the pool or beach together — and sometimes not.
This was my third trip to Puerto Peñasco. I liked this condo complex better than the other ones we stayed at. It wasn’t overwhelming with younger people ready to party or giant towers of too many rooms. It had many pools many tucked away in private settings. It did have a main pool and bar with a stage with live music at night that was quite good.
The pool areas were separated with lush landscaping and green lawns where families played soccer, football and frisbee.
Here are a few more of our sunset views:
I’ll post more pictures of our Mexico beach trip this week. The best thing about Puerto Peñasco is it’s four hours from home. I love it when we make it there and when we return home. A perfect getaway.
Do you have any favorite places where you can spend a few days relaxing or adventuring?
I always like to try someplace new. Other than that, I’m pretty content with nyc
You have a lot to see and explore.
I love exploring…within acceptable boundaries of my many fears that is
I was afraid to go to Mexico for the first year we lived in Arizona. I totally understand fears.
Our backyard. We spent 20+ years creating a vacation spot right outside our door.
That’s wonderful. I miss the beach though and need time at the ocean. You’ve got that too.
As long as there are safe and interesting places to walk I’m happy! Glad the trip went well.
Thank you. Yes, safety counts!
We tend to go to new places if we aren’t traveling to Kentucky. I did love Sedona and would go back there if I had to pick one place to go to relax
I’ve only been to Sedona once and it was a day trip when my daughter lived in AZ and we were visiting her. That’s before we moved. We’re an hour and half from Sedona and should visit!
Oh I’m glad the trip went well. Awesome photos.
Thank you 😊
It sounds like you had a good time! Love the photos.
We did have fun! I have lots more photos to share 😊
If we go back there, I’ll check out these condos. Sounds very nice! It’s a long drive from here, but closer than Baja.
I’m actually tempted to start staying at our local ski area for several days at a time when there is good snow.
Bella Sirena is the condo development we like best. I’m done with snow after falling in 2018 skiing and having knee surgery. I used to love it.
I would hate winter if I couldn’t ski, even with my knee replacement.
Skiing was my favorite support my entire life. One simple fall and I tore my ACL and meniscus. After surgery, PT and fours years later, it’s not the same.
I always love the ocean too. Beautiful!
The ocean makes me feel so good.
