Sonoyta, Sonora is a town in the northern Mexican state of Sonora. It stands on the U.S.-Mexico border, facing Lukeville, Arizona, in the United States. It is the municipal seat of the municipality of Plutarco Elías Calles.
Sonoyta is situated at an important crossroads. Federal Highway 2 crosses here. Federal Highway 8 leading toward Lukeville, Arizona (U.S.-Mexico border of Sonoyta) crosses the city. This road also travels to Rocky Point or Puerto Peñasco, Sonora.
Sonoyta is used as a crossover point for American tourists headed to Puerto Peñasco, Sonora or other cities in Northern Mexico. Puerto Peñasco, a popular beach city, is located about 60 miles (100 km) southwest on Highway 8.
Also, many illegal immigrants use the town to make their final preparations for a treacherous trek through the Sonoran Desert into the USA.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A passport or other WHTI-compliant travel document is necessary for U.S. and Canadian citizens traveling to Mexico. You may not be asked to present your passport if entering Mexico by land, but you will surely need to present one upon your return to the United States.
SO HAVE A PASSPORT WITH YOU!
Sonoyta features many urban features, as well as a downtown with many small stores and markets. Services of major companies, such as Pemex, are available.
