Safety -the road quality is good, lots of Americans travel back and forth every day, and many live in Rocky Point, full or part time -we won't spend any time in the border town -the violence being reported in Mexico has been fighting drug cartels and has very little effect on Rocky Point (not a drug route)

Phone access -bring a calling card -cell phone coverage: depends on your carrier, AT&T coverage is very good if you pay the International roaming
