Is Rocky Point Safe?
The answer in very short form is YES!!!! Puerto Penasco or as we call it Rocky Point, is probably one of the safest places to travel in Mexico. It is recommended to enter Puerto Penasco through the Lukeville/Sonoyta port of entry. You will be driving in Mexico once crossing the border for 65 miles and the road condition is very good. The stretch of highway just past the border to Puerto Penasco was designated a “safety corridor” in 2016. Make sure to observe speed limits, especially in the border town of Sonoyta and the city of Puerto Penasco. So slow down and remember that the speed limit in Mexico is in Kilometers, not miles and you will get pulled over if you go even one kilometer over. Expect exceedingly long lines at the border going into Mexico on Fridays and coming back to the US on Sundays. Driving at night is not recommended due to possible road hazards.
