We're planning a first-time trip to Rocky Point, but someone told me that there's all kinds of trouble going on and it is dangerous to drive there. Is this true?

The highway on the Mexican side to Penasco is new and very wide. The Arizona highway going down there is older,curvey, and narrow.
Rent a motel in Penasco, and enjoy the beach!

There are lots of reports about drug cartel crimes, especially at the border area? What about Lukesville? Is driving still safe to/from Puerto Penasco. We love it there, but are concerned about possible crime there too now.

There is a new article on this subject on the home page of this web site. Its worth reading.
We went down this past October and every thing seemed the norm. The only change that i had seen was a police check point between Sonoita and Puerto Penasco. They stopped us, had us roll down our windows and waived us on.
We will be going the first weekend of March. I cant wait!
