Guess it's a little further than I thought. It's 200 miles from Tucson.

You can run your boats up next to the beach by people in the water

I would not trailer my boat into Mexico. Some local cop might like it and take it from you.

Check out these beach front homes.....

Only $259k for this one! ON the beach!.

Feel like commuting to Huachuca from this 3 bed, 3 bath 2300 sq ft home?. That wouldnt be too bad!

Actually my friend had a 5th wheel and she just left it down there in a campground year round (she lives in N. AZ). That way, she always had a place to stay and a secure place to park her boat, even tho it was just a run of the mill tri-hull.

Looks to me like there there are more Gringos than Mexicans in Rocky Point today. (probably OLD gringos tho)

Rocky Point for first-timers

For starters, no special car permits are needed because Rocky Point lies within the Mexican free-trade zone. It's also in Sonora state, which features a program called "Only Sonora." According to AAA Arizona, this program exempts visitors who stay fewer than 72 hours in Rocky Point from the vehicle fees and deposits that would be required if they ventured farther south.

You should buy temporary Mexican auto insurance, which you can get through many insurers and AAA Arizona ( You can buy policies from agents or online or at offices near the Mexican border........

Prices vary based on length of stay and type of vehicle......approximately $40 to $70 for a weekend. The State Department advises buying coverage amounts similar to what you carry in the United States.
