Rocky Point Insurance
Rocky Point, so-called by most tourists, is also popularly dubbed “Arizona’s Beach.” Whatever you call this famous Mexican destination, its real name is Puerto Peñasco and it is a city in the State of Sonora in Mexico. It’s easy to forget when you drive to “Arizona Beach” that you’re driving into another country and as such, must follow those laws. First and foremost, you must have proof of financial responsibility from a Mexican company. Or, “Mexican insurance” as most people call it.
What are the Minimum Insurance Requirements for Rocky Point?
Rocky point insurance is required, even if your US insurance extends their coverage within 50 miles of the border. Because Puerto Penasco is 65 miles from the border, you need Comprehensive and Collision in addition to the legally mandated Liability coverage. To speak in simple terms, there are some US companies that maintain protection for damage and theft of your car within a certain distance of the border, but that does not include damage you may cause to a third party in an accident. If you’re in an accident and found guilty, you may be detained unless you have insurance from a Mexican company.
Here is a video on Mexican liability insurance:

If you make payments on your car or truck, then the company you pay on a monthly basis is your lienholder. A lienholder always requires that you also carry coverage from a Mexican company for damage or theft of your vehicle.
Complete Coverage Mexican insurance is when you combine Liability insurance with Comprehensive and Collision insurance.
