Things are rough right now for our friends in Mexico. They're caught in a drug war that is crossing into the border towns of the US. A lot of innocent people are dying all over and it is a sad fact that currently, I personally think it's too dangerous as an American to travel there. Those of you who follow this blog regularly know how much I love this country, but from the Tucson perspective, it has gotten too dangerous with kidnappings and shootings. There is a city that most Tucsonans love to visit besides San Diego and that is Rocky Point or Puerto Peñasco.
People still go however and if you do, make sure you travel by day and always with a group of people. Lock your doors and keep your belongings secure at all times.
As you can see by the pictures, this is a beautiful place to visit....so hopefully soon our friends in Sonora will have a decrease in violence down the road because it is an incredible place to visit.....furthermore, it is the southernmost part of the Sonoran desert which has a different group of plants that only grow in that region. We have one of the most incredible lush deserts of the world....it's definitely a must see. Happy and safe journeys!
