According to López, this little town's 25 hotels and resorts will be at capacity, which could mean up to 50,000 people in its rooms.
According to the Mexicali police department (in charge of San Felipe's police protection), the number of visitors reaches only 30,000 Memorial Day weekends.
López said one of the newest attractions of this tourist destination is a couple hang gliders brought in three months ago.
Other attractions are banana boats, jet skis and three-wheel motorcycles.
Besides lying on the beach, visitors can spend the weekend at several other spots.
One can take a tour by Valle de los Gigantes, which is a field full of 75-foot tall cacti, go deep-sea fishing, have a refreshing bath in the thermal waters of Puertecitos (south of San Felipe) or go to Laguna Percebú. And there are always the scores of shops, restaurants and night spots.
The fun of people who will spend their weekend here isn't shared by the 50 police officers of this port city.
The number No. 1 category for apprehensions over such weekends is street fights.
"Most of the time, guys from Arizona fight with the ones from California, or vice versa," said Felipe Guicho, a spokesman with the Mexicali police department.
Guicho says such brawls are usually prompted by the consumption of beer.
"In second place of apprehensions we have drunken persons on public ways," said Guicho.
Still, the department won't have more officers assigned to secure San Felipe over the weekend.
