Rocky Point Travel Directions

Travel Directions To Rocky Point Mexico

Traveling to Rocky Point Mexico is an easy trip from Phoenix, Tucson or Southern California. Be sure to consider Mexico Car Insurance before you go. The border is closed from midnight till 6:00 am so plan to arrive at the border while it is open. Plan extra time for crossing the border back into Arizona on busy weekends as there may be delays. Often the best times to return is Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays - mid morning to mid-afternoon. Same timeframes on Mondays would be second choice. Carry plenty of water as you will go through several areas with no services for some distance.

Overall the roads are good and traffic is generally light.
