After a tough spring and an even tougher summer, we are all ready for the next season in the line-up, and if you have a chance to getaway to celebrate the autumn equinox, why not live it up south of border? The weather is as close to perfect as it can get, the crowds have mostly headed back north, and FMI Rentals offers comfortable and stylish properties that will allow guests to beach more and worry less. Offering cooler days and warmer welcomings, your fall frolic on the Sea of Cortez promises to be an adventure that will make you forget about the early days of 2020 and fall in love with fall all over again. Following this Rocky Point vacation guide will make sure you do not miss out on a moment of the excitement, including all the wonderful moments you will have when staying with us!
Pumpkin Pancakes for Breakfast
Even though you are choosing a less traditional fall escape, the season would not be the same without the taste of pumpkin, and our fully equipped kitchens will make it easy to prepare a sweet breakfast of pumpkin pancakes. You may want to plan ahead for this recipe (listed below) in case pureed pumpkin cannot be found in the local grocery stores.
FMI Rentals Panqueques de Calabaza
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup milk
½ cup pumpkin puree
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Sift together the dry ingredients and whisk together the wet ingredients (minus the vegetable oil; that’s for oiling the pan) Drop the batter in large dollops onto the oiled griddle or pan, flipping halfway through cooking, and serve immediately to your hungry family! Whipped Cream on top adds a decadent treat, but regular maple syrup and butter tastes just as great!
Take a Hike
Fall in Rocky Point can still be rather warm, so this is not the vacation for you if you are hoping to spy some colorful autumn trees and with temperatures still reaching the low 90s in October, you may want to change your thoughts of a hike to a walk along the shore’s edge! If you get too warm, you can run out into the surf and cool down, before continuing your stroll. But if a hike is still what you have in mind, be sure to bring water and head towards the Black Mountain Hiking Trails! Located not that far from your FMI Rentals autumn abode, it is still close enough to water to allow for a dip when you start feeling flushed!
No Apple Picking Here
In the cooler parts of the world, fall is when the apples ripen and apple picking expeditions begin, but in Mexico, it is just another season for having fun on the beach! But that does not mean the adults in your party need to skip apples altogether, because just as the old saying goes an apple a day keeps the doctor away and in Rocky Point, a Carmel Apple Martini at sunset brings about happy dreams! This drink uses only four ingredients: caramel vodka, apple cider (you can make nonalcoholic versions for the youngsters!) salted caramel, and salt. Heat up the caramel sauce and drizzle along the outside of the glass and then dip into the salt—much as you would a margarita. Mix the vodka and apple cider together and sip at sunset on the patio of your FMI Rentals vacation escape!
Ghost Stories on the Beach
As night falls over the town of Puerto Peñasco, a quiet peace envelopes its occupants as they go about their normal business of dining and housework, but in October you may feel the need to shake things up a bit as you tell ghost stories on the beach. Bonfires are not allowed any more, but a battery operated camping lantern makes a great substitute, as you lay down towels in a circle around the lantern, the backdrop of the ocean and the glow from the harvest moon overhead adds to ambience of your nighttime beach adventures! Not sure you want to be out on the beach after dark? A few of our homes offer rooftop decks, so bring the party upstairs and be sure to enjoy a few more caramel apple martinis while you do so!
