Appreciate the info. Las year when we made reservations we had no idea it was going to be Super Bowl weekend. If its not soccer I don't believe the mexicans care much. Wonder what impact it'll have on RP as to traffic?
40KM/hora is the speed limit through Sonoyta. That's 25mph American. I usually do 15-18mph. Still waiting for these assholes to pull me over and tell me that I can't go that slow amigo.Yup on the cops. Found that they were hanging near the red cross "checkpoint". We switch the speed o meter over to kilometers and crawl through there. I noticed we usually get passed by a lot of arizona plated vehicles but to each their own. I need my money for shrimp and tequila.
Right after the crossing in to Mexico at Lukeville and right before crossing back in to the U.S. what I call Federales have additional checkpoints. I usually just get a nod and wave to move on but have also had every single thing in my truck looked at and opened.I've been in town the last two Super Bowls and it's pretty quiet honestly. You have to figure, Phoenix Open is same weekend so that draws a ton of Phoenicians many of which would normally be down in Rocky Point and the super bowl itself opens the schedule up for home parties and whatnot. Just my 2 cents. I like super bowl weekend. This will be our third year watching the super bowl at the Boo Bar. Leaving Phoenix super early tomorrow morning. Super bowl at the Boo Bar and then Monday is the Boo Bar Poker Run if you have an off road capable vehicle it's a good time.
People keep saying Mexican Marines... I thought the guys at the border were the new National Guard?
The guys in camo on the Mexican side are supposed to be the new Mexican National Guard and their main job is border security. It was created by Pres Obrador unless I'm mistaken. Roberto can pry confirm this. They are also the ones that have been taking money while searching vehicles right after you cross into Mexico. They never stop me. I have gotten the red light every damn time now however.Right after the crossing in to Mexico at Lukeville and right before crossing back in to the U.S. what I call Federales have additional checkpoints.

You can also change over to kilometres on your GPS going through SonoytaJust a hint. If you drive though Sonoyta a lot get a dashcam with a GPS that records your speed (less than $100). We go back and forth to Arizona a couple times a month and the two times I was pulled over I ask them to watch the dashcam video and they didn't bother to either time, they just sent us on our way.
Crossed over yesterday southbound. We waived at border guards and then the mexican marines and drove right through. Both our friends behind us each got stopped and about a minutes worth of 'inspection" , we were on our way. Saw sonoita cops out and about . One of them had grabbed a northbound traveler at the red cross stop. They sit right there cause ya can't seen them until your there. So the answer for us was as usual. Drove under the speed limit all the way to Rocky Point. For those that think its ok to pick up the speed after leaving the city , ok, but yesterday we saw Federales in their dodge challenger out and about . They weren't city cops. Thanks all for your responses
