In February the U.S. Department of State issued a Travel Warning for Mexico. The alert specifically mentions Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point) and indicates that one should "exercise caution when visiting the coastal town of Puerto Peñasco. Sonora is a key region in the international drug and human trafficking trades, and can be extremely dangerous for travelers."

Rocky Point is usually a popular destination for Spring Break, but at least one tour/travel company that takes A.S.U. students on a Rocky Point excursion has canceled the plans this year.
Do you think Rocky Point is any more dangerous now than in previous years? Are you still planning to visit Rocky Point during Spring Break or at any other time this year? Please post your comments below.
