My family and I love going to Rocky Point almost every year. We love staying in the Playa Encanto area.
It’s about 25 minutes from Rocky Point but we don’t mind it at all.
We love the beautiful, secluded beaches there. It’s so peaceful and quiet.
We especially like that there are no vendors at all in this area. We feel comfortable leaving our belongings on the lounge chairs while we go for a swim, and we’re not concerned about anyone taking them.
When we are there, we feel like we almost have the beach all to ourselves!
The drive down
We drove down from Tucson at the end of February. It only took us about 2 and a half hours to get to the border. The road trip to the border was uneventful.
Crossing the border also went without any issues. We did get the red light at the border so our vehicle got searched by Mexican customs but no problems at all there.
I don’t know if you know this but when you cross the border if you get the green traffic light your vehicle doesn’t get searched and you can keep on driving but if you get the red traffic light your vehicle gets searched for any non allowed or illegal items.
After we crossed the border and started our drive through Sonoita we got pulled over by the Mexican police. They said I was speeding. I spoke with them and told them I was driving at the speed limit and explained how they were in the wrong. After trying to clarify things for a while, they let us go and told us to proceed with more caution and we were on our way.
