Shop with a Margarita in Hand!
If you're planning a trip to Puerto Penasco in Mexico anytime soon, then be sure to include a visit to 'The Pink Store' (La Tienda Rosa). And, no visit to Puerto Penasco, and in particular to the stunning Las Palomas, is complete without trying one of their Margaritas.
If you don't know too much about Puerto Palomas de Villa, which is also better known as Palomas, then you may want to start by heading over to the Palomas Mexico site . Essentially, it's a small town of 4,700 people in the municipality of Ascension, which is itself in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. It also borders on the town of Columbus, New Mexico, in the United States and in fact you can walk to the Pink Store from the border, it's that close.
The Pink Store itself is big, it's very pink and you won't be able to miss it. It'is called the Pink Store for obvious reasons and it's developed an almost cult following. The store's owners, Ivonne and Sergio Romero, have been serving up old-time Mexican hospitality for over twenty five years.
The Pink Store itself specializes in pottery, mirrors and other decorative items. The staff are friendly and they offer a discount for cash. Once you have chosen your purchases, one of the staff will deliver your selection to the front of the store and carefully pack up your new purchases. They also have a pink golf cart and offer a driver to drive you and your goods across the border.
Here on Tripelli, we have a whole range of condos and apartments in Las Palomas . They're all of both a high quality and a reasonable price. So, it's difficult to find reasons not to be drinking a Margarita whilst shopping for souvenirs in the Pink Store.
We'd also strongly advise anyone visiting the Pink Store to also try out the colorful Pancho Villa restaurant and bar. It's under the same roof and offers some excellent dishes and cocktails. Thomson [link=http://www.thomson.co.uk/]
