Puerto Peñasco's Tourism Growth Continues in Summer

Puerto Peñasco's Tourism Growth Continues in Summer


The beaches of Puerto Peñasco have seen a 5% growth in tourism from the U.S. during the month of July, which could close out with nearly 280,000 visitors.
 
According to info provided by the local Convention and Visitors Bureau (OCV), July has had 70 to 75% occupancy rates at beachfront hotels, with many weekends reporting to be completely full. This represents a 5% increase over the same period last year.
 
OCV President Héctor Vázquez del Mercado notes this coming weekend is important for tourism in Puerto Peñasco, with thousands of visitors from the U.S. enjoying their remaining vacation weeks, along with numerous Mexican tourists principally from Baja California, Chihuahua, and Sonora.
Vázquez del Mercado indicated July numbers show about 75% of tourists coming from abroad, with the remaining coming directly from Mexico.  He added the percentage of national tourism will begin to grow this coming week as Mexican families recover from graduation costs.
 
During August, the majority of tourists to the area tend to be from Mexicali and Tijuana in Baja California, as well as from the state of Chihuahua and areas across Sonora, with an expected 50% hotel occupancy rate which represents about 200,000 visitors for the month.

Supermoon in rocky Point - Coldwell Banker By the Sea

Missed the Supermoon In July? There's Another In August

DSC09157
If overcast skies spoiled your view of the much hyped July 12th 'Supermoon', no problemo, amigo. You'll have not one, but two more opportunities this year to gaze at, photograph, or otherwise enjoy the phenomenon of a Supermoon.  The photos in this story are of the July Supermoon, taken by our friend and local photographer, Tony Ballesteros, who endured through the wee hours of July 11th to capture these awesome images. Thanks Tony!  
 
What is a supermoon?
The label supermoon was coined over 30 years ago by Richard Nolle -an astrologer, no less-although it didn't hit prime time usage by astronomers until just a few years ago.  No real reason why it didn't become widely used right away since Nolle's definition of a supermoon was a clear, concise description of  what astronomers call a perigee full moon or perigee new moon. Perigee simply means "near earth." Because the moon's orbit around the earth is elliptical there's a point when it is nearest the earth and a point when it's furthest from the earth.  When its near point coincides with a new or full moon, that is a Supermoon. Nolle even defined the distance to the earth that would qualify a moon as a supermoon. He said that a supermoon is a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90%) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit. The distances are measured from the center of the moon to the center of the Earth. That generous 10% leeway allows for many supermoons by definition, anywhere from 4 to 6 per year.
 
In fact, this year, counting the July 12th Supermoon we've already had three of them. The first two were new moons that occurred on January 1st and January 30th. Of course we couldn't see them as new moons occur when the moon is aligned between the earth and the sun. We still have two more  full moons to go which will be Supermoons according to Nolle's definition. The next one is on August 10th and the final, and fifth of the year is on September 9th, another full moon. The full moon of next Sunday, August 10th is actually the one that will be closest to the earth and will appear as the largest and brightest. It will also cause the largest surges in the earth's tides. (Full and new moons always affect our tides because our planet receives extra gravitational pulls from both the sun and the moon.   
 
So, how close will the August 10th Supermoon be to the Earth? On that night the moon will be 356,896 kilometers from Earth. For reference, when it is the furthest from Earth the distance is 406,567 kilometers, a difference of 49,671 kilometers.
 
So, get your cameras, binoculars, telescopes...or beach chairs and enjoy the bright moon on Saturday the 10th. If you're a meteor shower watcher, please note the supermoon will fade out all but the brightest of meteors from the Perseid showers that happen this time each year.
 
Even though they don't have much to do with Supermoons, we'll leave you with these final two interesting facts that you may not know about our earth and the moon:  
 
Earth:
 
Did you know that in our orbit around the sun, we're hurtling through space at nearly 67,000 mph? At the same time our planet is spinning around in circles at over 1000 mph! Almost makes you dizzy, doesn't it?
 
Moon:
 
Did you ever wonder why we always see the same side of the moon from here on Earth? It is simply because the rotation period of the moon is identical to its orbital period (29.5 days). Hence we always see the same face of the Moon!

Pet safety in the summer - Coldwell Banker By the Sea

 

Higher temperatures may translate into more time spent outdoors, but for pet owners, they can also mean more visits to the veterinarian. "In the summer, we see more skin and ear infections and an increase in injuries overall," says Sandra Sawchuk, DVM, at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Here's how to protect your pet during the warmer months:

Use Sunscreen, Please!

  • Shield delicate skin. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in dogs and second most common in cats. Even though fur provides some protection from the sun, you should apply a pet sunblock every 3 to 4 hours to the least hair-covered spots: bellies on dogs (especially ones who like to lie on their backs) and ears and around eyes on cats, which are also areas where malignant tumors are likely to show up. (No need to apply sunscreen directly on fur.) Use products made specifically for pets, such as Epi-Pet Sun Protector Sunscreen ($18; epi-pet.com), which is safe for dogs—ingredients such as zinc oxide can be toxic to pets.
  • Keep coats long. While it may seem logical to cut your pet's coat short, resist the urge. "If hair—even long hair—is brushed and not matted, it provides better circulation and helps her regulate her body temperature," says Rene Carlson, DVM, president of the American Veterinary Medical Association. (Check out these three tips for grooming pets at home.)
  • Soothe burns safely. If your pet does get burned, apply a thin layer of pure aloe vera twice daily to soothe the irritated area. (Check the brand with your vet first, for pet safety.)

Play It Cool

  • Walk with caution. Don't walk your dog during the day's highest heat and humidity, which is usually between 1 and 4 PM. This is especially important for dogs with short snouts, such as bulldogs, who can't pant as efficiently in humid weather due to their narrowed nostrils and windpipes.
  • Never leave her in the car. Even if windows are cracked, the interior temp can rise by 19°F in as little as 7 minutes. On a hot day, this can be deadly. (Check out this simple guide to driving with dogs.)
  • Look out for heat exhaustion. If your dog shows signs of heat stress—heavy panting, dry or bright red gums, thick drool, vomiting, diarrhea, or wobbly legs—don’t place her in ice cold water, which can put her into shock. Instead, move her to a cool place, drape a damp towel over her body, rewetting the cloth frequently, and get her to the vet as soon as you possibly can. A dog's normal temperature is between 100° and 103°F, so once she hits 104°F, she's in dangerous territory (106°F or higher can be fatal).
  • Keep it cool indoors. Turn on the AC in your home, especially if you'll be out of the house for several hours. If it's too warm for you, it's too warm for your pet.

Sting Ray and Jellyfish season in Rocky Point Mexico


JELLYFISH

Jellyfish can be found on both coasts of Baja, although usually not in great numbers on either coast. The larger jellyfish, often up to one foot or more in diameter, can be found occasionally along the west coast of Baja. They are usually found offshore, but can sometimes be found in the surf line as well.

The sting of a large jellyfish can cause significant pain, but the pain is usually temporary and rarely lasts more than a day or two. Since they are relatively easy to see in the water, jellyfish can usually be avoided.

Much smaller jellyfish can be found in the Sea of Cortez. Some of these animals are so small they can barely be seen. In the case of most of these very small jellyfish, the sting is almost unperceptable and causes not much more than an itching sensation in most people.

These very small jellyfish can usually be seen with a mask and snorkel. Since most people snorkeling tend to look down towards the floor of the ocean when snorkeling, it is important to remember to look horizontally when checking for small jellyfish.

It is a good idea to look for evidence of jellyfish while walking along the shore before going into the ocean. If the jellyfish are 'running' there are usually pieces of jellyfish or whole jellyfish laying on the sand between the low tide line and the high tide line.

If there is evidence of jellyfish along the shore there is a very good chance that they will also be in the water. Whether or not jellyfish can be seen on the shoreline, it's always a good idea to keep a look out for these slimy looking creatures once you have entered the water.

 

STINGRAYS

Stingrays are diamond shaped animals with flat bodies found in ocean waters on both the Pacific Coast of Baja as well as the Sea of Cortez side, usually in shallow warm waters with sandy bottoms. They tend to be more prevelent on the Sea of Cortez side of Baja, and usually hang out together in groups. The larger rays tend to stay in deeper water.

Most swimmers use the 'Stingray Shuffle' as the primary method of avoiding these marine animals. By simply shuffling your feet while walking forward in the water, most stingrays will do their best to get out of the way. Walking 'heavy' on the ocean bottom while shuffling provides the same desired effect...warning these critters that you are nearby.

Stingrays are brown or tan and tend to blend in with flat sandy bottoms. They are sometimes covered with sand, and will usually not spend much time in the surf zone where waves are breaking and where the sandy bottom is rolling from the constant wave action. However, in calmer water just a little bit deeper they can be found laying still on the bottom.

Stingrays have barbed spines near the base of their their long whip-like tails capable of inflicting wounds on whatever part of the 'target' they strike. Since most people surprise stingrays with their feet, foot injuries are by far the most common with stingrays.

Once the barb of a stingray has been 'stung' into the foot of a person, venom enters the bloodstream. The pain is sharp and immediate, varying with the degree of the stingray 'hit'. It is important to address the wound as soon as possible. The main goals are to remove any barb that may have been placed by the ray, and suck out the venum from the wound. This is easily done with a small suction kit available for just such a job. Keeping the affected foot in extremely hot fresh water will do wonders to reduce pain until the poison is removed.

The good news is that stingrays are passive animals. They will only strike when they feel that their life is in danger. Such is the case when most people step on them. So whenever enjoying sandy waters that have been known to contain stingrays, walk slowly and heavily, shuffle your feet and keep your eyes open.
