Semana Santa (Easter Week): March 25 – April 1

The week leading up to Easter sees an influx of thousands of people into Sonora’s beach-side towns. This is a popular time for family vacations. And what better place to spend it than on a sandy palm-lined beach.

Semana Santa, or Holy Week, goes from Palm Sunday (March 25, 2018) to Easter (Sunday, April 1, 2018). It is Mexico’s second most important holiday season, after Christmas.

School children have a two week holiday, and many companies close-up shop during that time so that their employees can spend time with their families.

For some, it is time to spend in church, but many Mexicans will also take advantage of the holiday to go on vacation. And, for their vacation, half of Mexico flocks to the beaches looking to play in the surf, camp on the beach, spend time with family and friends and to dance, drink and have a fiesta.

Semana Santa San Carlos: By day the beaches are overflowing with tourists and locals alike, flying kites, swimming and soaking up the beautiful weather — while enjoying fun in the sun and a couple of cervezas. If you need to drive anywhere, this is the time to do it, because by late afternoon, the roads are bumper to bumper with trucks, cars, ATVs and motor bikes cruising up and down the strip. The vehicles are overflowing with people. Whole families ride on ATVs. And, speakers and plastic Tecate chairs in the back of pick-up trucks convert them into parties on wheels.

From one end of the town to the other, celebrants, young and old, families and friends fill the streets. Thirsty revelers guzzle Pacifico and Tecate. The already raucous atmosphere is pumped up even higher with roving musicians who add to the cacophony coming from hundreds of vehicles’ sound systems turned up to the max. People dance in large groups anywhere and everywhere that the feeling moves them.

Vendors line the street selling everything from souvenirs and sunglasses to local crafts. The mouth-watering smell of BBQ wafts through the air. All the local food specialties are available, from ceviche to carne asada.

Yes, Semana Santa is noisy and crowded and the traffic can be horrible, but it’s a fantastic Mexican celebration that should be experienced at least once. You will not regret or soon forget sharing in the excitement of a whole town celebrating together.

The Silent Comedy Show with Omar, March 26

The Silent Comedy Show with Omar is on Monday, March 26 at 6:30pm at the Captains Club.

The shows this week are “Papa’s Boy”, “Love ‘Em and Weep” and “Never Weaken”.

Fishing, Golfing, Birding & Biking Reports

Fishing Report

The fishing picked up a little last week. There were a few good days had at the Island,  jigging up some nice yellowtail. The bait thinned out and got a little bigger in close. We had a beautiful day Wednesday and caught four of five trolling off San Antonio. Most of the yellowtail were 8 – 12 pounds.

The next morning we picked up several, with one about 17 pounds. I heard of a couple better catches and one to 19 pounds. Sunday we caught several, but they were small. They were boiling though, which I hadn’t seen in a month.

It should be good the next few days as we come off the New Moon. The weather looks better too! The winds have been consistent, kicking up cold brown 60 degree water and lots of seaweed. The clearer water outside the seaweed lines have held the fish lately. Some fish are coming to the surface, but deep is always productive. Hope that you get some for the table!

Birding Report

This last week’s outing was to Rancho Nacapule and Bella Esperanza. At the ranch, we headed down a wash that still has some water although it is stagnant. The birds don’t care about that so we perched ourselves nearby. That area is very pastoral and serene. We had Black-throated Sparrows, Costa’s Hummingbirds, Ash-throated Flycatchers, Curved-billed Thrashers and a high-flying Red-tailed Hawk. Bella Esperanza is not nearly so green even though it has a natural source of water but birds love it. As it is a small spot, we squeezed our chairs in tight and watched as Gambel’s Quail, Northern Cardinals, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Verdin, Costa’s Hummingbirds and various sparrows dropped by. We did not see a single Lark Sparrow so spring migration for sparrows is apparently underway.

The Bird of the Week is the Bullock’s Oriole. I chose this bird because we saw two yesterday at the settlement ponds for the San Carlos Plaza Hotel. This is a gorgeous yellow/orange bird that migrates through our area on its way to summer breeding grounds in the western US. Spring is definitely in the air in birdlandia. Bullock´s like to forage for caterpillars, fruit, and nectar in low brush and in trees. It is quite possible you could have one arrive at your hummingbird feeder like our regular winter visitor, the Hooded Oriole, likes to do.

Bullock’s Orioles “hybridize” which means “mate” frequently with Baltimore Orioles when their ranges overlap in the the Great Plains area of the US. For a while, because of the intermixing, they were designated one species, the Northern Oriole. But in 1995, the American Ornithologist’s Union once again recognized them as a separate species. The males of the species do not look anything alike but then the males are not breeding with each other. The name Bullock’s comes from the two William Bullocks (father and son) who studied this bird and many other birds of Mexico.

Habitats for birds can vary between their breeding, migration, and winter ranges. says that in a study of “spring passage migrants conducted in southwestern Arizona, Bullock’s Oriole had the widest habitat breadth of 45 species examined; Bullock’s was found roughly equally in mixed-cacti habitats and xeroriparian scrub, dominated by paloverde, mesquite, and catclaw acacia, rich sources of pollen and nectar that attract insects in spring.” Xeroriparian scrub is desert wash areas. That description fits our area. In their breeding ranges they like tall Sycamore, Cottonwood, Willows and Oaks – quite different than here.

Bullock’s Orioles are an interesting example of birds expanding their range because of habitat changes. reported that this Oriole is frequent in eastern Washington (in the summer) but has been rare in the western part of the state (there is a mountain range between them) and the habitats are quite different. But frequent plantings of hardwood trees in western Washington residential areas has led to an expansion across the mountains. This is why range maps in guidebooks can never be exact. Keep your eye out for this beautiful bird.

Our Birding Group will meet at 8:00am this Thursday, March 22 at the Esterito Cafe at the end of Bahía San Carlos. We will be visiting estuaries as the tides are excellent. Roseate Spoonbills are around and the lovely American Avocet is changing to its summer colors. Many of these birds are or will be quite soon beginning their migration north. We are also seeing lots of Elegant and Royal Terns. Bring your binoculars, sun protection and folding chairs. If you have questions, you may contact me at

Head’s Up: There will be NO birding outing next week on Thursday, March 29 due to Semana Santa.

Golfing Report

Ladies Club – March 13: Once again the Ladies wisely decided that the flat stick was the most important club in the bag and counted ONLY their putts. In the ‘A’ flight, Lynn Renard was the Ben Crenshaw of the day winning with only 31 putts beating Doris Tower by one gimmie. Meanwhile Jeannie Roberts needed only 30 to win the ‘B’ flight again by a single stroke over Lindsay Dickinson. Things were even closer in the ‘C’ flight with Patricia Bradley, Barb Reeves and Cathy Cleveland all tying for top spot with 34 putts. Mary Ann McKinney had the hottest round of the day with a score of 90 net 65.

The Men’s Club – 2018 Club Championships, March 15 & 16 saw 44 guys try their hand at becoming the Top Gun of San Carlos for 2018. Only 31 of them survived the strong winds of Thursday and the nerves of Friday to post results. Chuck Althauser led the field on Thursday with a score of 80 but faded on the 2nd day. Tim Fath, Brian Osachoff and Robert Frank all made runs at it, but Mark Bertrand came out top posting a net score of 160 in winning top honors. As well as the gross championship we also have awards for the three flighted net events using those hard earned handicaps and the scores were super tight in all as well. Tim Fath got nipped here too by a stroke in the ‘A’ flight by top dog Smitty (Richard Smit). In the ‘B’ flight Brad Knippelmeir was bested by a single stroke by winner Tom Teskey, whose net 137 was the lowest of all of the competitors. Steve Riedel came alive to win the ‘C’ flight by a couple of strokes over the still hot shooting Jerry Hale. Congrats to all the competitors.

Upcoming Events:
– March 22 – Men’s Club – Game – Chapman Event – the last official men’s day of the season – AGM and lunch after the game
– March 20 & 23 – Ladies Club Championship
– March 27 – Ladies Day – Final luncheon meeting
– March 29 – Men’s Club – A social day, show up, make up your own foursomes, collect the last of your winnings and wish your buddies a good summer

Just a reminder for the men & ladies to please sign up for the weekly play online if you can. It makes things so much easier to organize. Go to (now the central link for both the Mens AND Ladies Golf Clubs) and follow the Sign Up Page to get registered. If you aren’t able to get online, call Jim @ 226-1637 for the men or Mary @ 226-0156 for the Ladies and we’ll get you fixed up.

If you have any golf related news, events, happenings, exceptional scores or the like that you would like out in the community, let us know and we will do what we can to make it happen.

Mountain Biking Group Report

A San Carlos mountain biking group meets every Monday and Friday at 9:00am at the OXXO near Casa de Talavera across from Tortuga’s Restaurant. This is not a beginner’s group. We ride 20 to 35 kilometers. Mondays rides tend to be less technically difficult and less strenuous.

Friday March 30 there will be no organized group ride due to Semana Santa in San Carlos.

Starting in April we will meet at 8:00am instead of 9:00am.

On Friday March 16 we visited Hermosillo for a day. First stop was a Coyota bakery – Doña Marías. 80 Pesos for a package of 10. I bought Jamoncillo con Dátil and an assortment for a neighbor. These are a six inch cookie with a variety of fillings. The colonia Villa de Seris is a center of Coyota bakeries in Hermosillo  Doña Marías is perhaps the best known.

After a sugar fix of Coyotas, we then rode Pueblo Dorado which is about 16km southwest of the Hermosillo airport on the road to Bahía Kino. This is a campestre – recreational property. There are two hills in this property and the mountain bike trail climbs and descends both. The hill areas are rocky with plenty of loose material in spots and technical. The rest of the trail is flat and not interesting. You can find this on TrailForks.

A stop at an OXXO for beverage and another Coyota and we visited La Jolla. La Jolla is a very high-end subdivision in the north end of Hermosillo. This development is in a very hilly section of Hermosillo with expansive views and very large, luxurious homes. We were directed by security to park at the sales office and ride to the trail. This set of trails is exceptionally well designed. They follow the contours of an extensive hillside very well. There is a lot of climbing and fun descents, but the climbs are not grueling. All four of us highly recommend La Jolla. There are excellent views from most of the trails. There is a large map of the trail area at the base of the hill near the parking area for residents (map).

Buqui Bichi is just 8 minutes away from La Jolla. Buqui Bichi is a brew pub with excellent craft beers and excellent hamburgers and fries. I really liked the SahuarIPA India Pale Ale. A truly excellent finish to an Hermosiilo visit.

Other News Around Town

The Fariseos in San Carlos

Easter in Mexico is steeped with tradition. One unusual ritual in San Carlos, Mexico is the arrival of the Fariseos (in English, Pharisees), starting on Ash Wednesday. In the Christian religion, the Pharisees were the ones who brought Jesus to the cross to be crucified. The Fariseos we see today are indigenous men who make a sacrifice during Lent by traveling throughout the region for 40 days, in order to ask for forgiveness from God or to receive a favor from Him.

There are two groups of Fariseos: 1) the Yaqui that come from the small towns along the Yaqui River in Sinaloa, and 2) the Mayo that come from the towns along the Mayo River in Sonora. Based on their costumes, the ones in San Carlos pictured are the Mayo Fariseos.

They are dressed in masks made of goatskin. Their shirts are made of carrizo (a type of bamboo reed). Mayo Fariseos are covered with blankets and often in white robes. They have leg bracelets made of dried butterfly cocoons and filled with small stones that make noise while walking and dancing around San Carlos. They wear Huaraches sandals and carry wooden sticks, rattles and drums. Sometimes their hands are painted red to represent the blood of Christ.

So, with this costume, they go from place to place, and city to city, dancing for money in order to buy food for themselves during their 40 day travels, and to use to celebrate Resurrection Sunday in their hometown. On that Sunday, they also burn the mask.

The unique thing about this ritual is that they never speak when they are traveling about. They wear a rosary and place the small wooden cross in their mouths, to remind them of the cultural and religious significance of their journey. So the next time you see the Fariseos coming around, why not give them a donation and wish them well.
