Mexico Route...

To take the Mexico route from Yuma proceed south on Arizona SR-95 to the town of San Luis. This is a U.S. border town across from the Mexican town of San Luis Rio Colorado. In San Luis Rio Colorado you pick up Mexico Route 2 (MR-2) and follow that to Sonoita. In Sonoita you pick up MR-8 to Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco).
The author has never been over Mexico Route 2. The route was suggested by a visitor from the San Diego area. Being adventurous souls they took the MR2 route on their trip to Rocky Point and were kind enough to share with us their experience. If you would like to read what they had to say, click here for their own words.

 

From Southern California.

There are a couple routes available from Southern California. From The San Diego area, follow I-8 East to Yuma and then follow the directions in the "From Yuma" guide.
From L.A. and environs, visitors can take I-10 East to Arizona SR-95 at Quartzite, AZ, then south on Arizona SR-95 to Yuma and then follow the directions in the "From Yuma" guide. Another (longer) way would be to take I-10 East to Buckeye, AZ and turn south on Arizona SR-85. Taking this route you would follow the directions in the "From Phoenix" guide, picking it up where you turn south off of I-10 onto Arizona SR-85.
