Home Port Construction to Resume in April
Although I have not seen anything official, it was relayed to me from a very reliable source that construction will begin again by the middle of April. The construction has also been scheduled to continue, unabated, until the project is completed. Yes, we have heard that before but the atmosphere is different this time around and our Governor has pushed hard to see it to completion during her term. Onl...y time will tell but it looks like the project will come to life again very soon.

Homeport will detonate the tourism of Peñasco.
The Homeport project, which is being carried out in Puerto Peñasco and will detonate tourism in the ports of the Sea of Cortez, has a 50% advance, reported Hector Platt Mazón.
The office manager of the Tourism Development Commission (Cofetur) in Sonora declared that they are expecting around 250 million pesos to continue with this federal work....
He pointed out that the project requires an investment of approximately one thousand 500 million pesos federal, of which 491 million have already been delivered and worked by the state government so that with the next 250 million will advance to more than 50% of the work.
"Today we are in that follow-up without having a date of when the state is going to be administered with this resource, but what is 100% certain is that it is already in the federal budget," he said.
The Homeport will have space for the arrival of tourist cruises in Puerto Peñasco, he added, but will also benefit the states of Baja California and Sinaloa by taking a route through the main ports of La Paz, Los Cabos, Mazatlan, Topolobampo, and Guaymas.
The arrival of a cruise ship generates an important economic spill, he said, as it is estimated that each passenger spends about $55 dollars, while each crewman about $45 dollars.

Rocky Point tourism increasing.
Tourism leaders in Puerto Penasco aka Rocky Point seemed unfazed by the State Department's latest warning, saying it will have little impact on the number of visitors, which has grown steadily over the past few years.
"Since it's been the same text for Peñasco for the past four years, we've seen that tourism has increased between five, ten, even 15 percent on a yearly basis," Hector Vasquez del Mercado said. He presides over the Puerto Peñasco ...Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Rocky Point has seen its fortunes rise and fall with U.S. travel advisories. It was first included in the government's Mexico travel warning in April 2011. It advises caution when visiting because of "multiple incidents" of drug-related violence during that year, including the high-profile shooting of its police chief".
Travelers spooked by that warning skipped Rocky Point in favor of other nearby beach destinations, including San Diego.
Rocky Point businesses and boosters were angry about the warning because the shooting had happened a year earlier.
Since then, state and local governments in Sonora have invested heavily in security, in attempts to lure back visitors. To this day, it's common to see armored police vehicles patrolling the city at all hours.
* Rocky Point is on level 3 due to other cities nearby! Is safe to travel to Rocky Point!
Rocky Point Cruise-ship port gets a new lifeline.
The Mexican government is set to begin the first phase of making a dock at Rocky Point a home port for cruise ships. The cruise-ship in Rocky Point will be built at the edge of Sandy Beach, past the resorts and at the base of the rocky formation that gave the city its name.
The cruise-ship port is expected to be completed by 2020. Construction stalled for two years but will restart in the coming months. ...
