 Sonora, Mexico Travel Warnings and Advisories


The United States Department of State routinely updates its Mexico Travel Warnings, which include advisories, warnings and other information regarding travel to the Mexican state of Sonora and other parts of Mexico.

The most recent advisory was issued in August of 2017, just in time for the 2017 Sonora tourism season. Click here to read details about the advisory.

There is a well-publicized, ongoing conflict between two Mexican cartels that directly affects the Sonoran border town of Sonoyta, just across the border from the Lukeville, Arizona border crossing.

This is of special concern because the Lukeville/Sonoyta border crossing is the main Mexican border entry for tourists on their way to the Sonora beach resort city of Puerto Peñasco. Because of its importance to tourism, the area is heavily patrolled by local, state and federal Mexican law enforcement, so it should be generally safe when taking precautions.

The U.S. Consulate in Nogales, Sonora is located at Calle San Jose, Nogales, Sonora, telephone 011-52-631-311-8150. Click here to see their website.
