Coming down to Rocky Point? We have been hearing about tighter checks at boarder for cigarettes and booze. “Passengers over 18 years, are allowed up to 10 packs of cigarettes, 25 cigars or 200 grams of snuff; up to three liters of alcoholic drinks and six liters of wine.”

NOTE: Although the Mexican SAT website says 6 liters of wine…we have reports of only 3 liters of wine being allowed at checkpoint. To be safe you might want to keep it at 3 liters wine. Don’t bring more than the allowance. No worries…There is plenty of great booze at the best destination in Rocky Point…The Satisfied Frog.
