Last month, in response to a request from Peñasco Mayor, Jorge Pivac Carrillo to the Lukeville Port Director, Peter J. Bachelier and the Office of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), an agreement was reached to extend the current border hours of operation during a few select holidays weekends this year. Our Mayor was grateful to the CBP for the extension as all of the tourists and residents of Sonoyta and Puerto Peñasco will be because it will allow them a couple extra hours to arrive home safely. Hopefully someday we can go back to our pre-covid hours, which were 6:00 AM to midnight, but for now we’ll take the 2-hour extension on select dates. Current border hours are 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM and will remain the same for any day not listed below.

As of this writing the hours for the Sonoyta/Lukeville crossing will be extended for the holiday dates listed below…ONLY! All other days the crossing hours will remain the same – 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM will remain the same.

Hours are Extended Until 10:00 PM ONLY on dates listed below!
