The Lukeville Border Is Open?

Clearing the Confusion: The Lukeville Border Is Open, Even If Internet Says Otherwise

From the temporary closure in December to its recent reopening in January, the situation at the Lukeville border has been a source of concern and uncertainty for many travelers and residents alike.

During that period, travel restrictions and unknowns about the exact reopening date kept people on hold, with questions about whether or not they would be able to cross to enjoy the wonders of Rocky Point and the surrounding area.


However, despite the official reopening in January, some people may be in for a surprise when searching for information online. Google, in its mapping and search service, may show the Lukeville border as "temporarily closed." What does this mean - is it really closed, or is it just a reporting error?


The answer is a bit of both. True, there was a temporary closure in December, but since then the border has reopened for non-commercial traffic. So why does Google still display the "temporarily closed" label? The reason is quite simple: Google hasn't updated its information to reflect the change in status. But here's the good news: you can help correct it too!


If you come across the "temporarily closed" label when searching for information about the Lukeville border on Google, you can suggest a correction. Simply click on "Suggest a change" at the bottom of the information card on Google Maps and select the "It's open" option. With a simple gesture, you can help provide accurate and useful information for those planning a trip to Rocky Point.

Lukeville reopen
In their press release, CBP reiterated their commitment to border security, emphasizing that they will continue to prioritize this mission in response to the ever-evolving situation. "We will keep assessing security situations, adjusting our operational plans, and deploying resources to maximize enforcement efforts against noncitizens who do not use lawful pathways or processes, such as scheduling an appointment via CBP One, and those without a legal basis to remain in the United States," stated the agency.

The closure of the Lukeville border dealt a severe blow to the economy of the surrounding towns, halting the flow of trade and tourism that forms the lifeblood of these communities. However, amidst this economic downturn, a silver lining emerged for the intrepid explorers willing to seek out adventure in the region.

5th International Jazz Day Celebration

Rocky Point Jazz Festival – 5th International Jazz Day set for April 22 & 23

Rocky Point Jazz Festival, April 22 & 23.

Rocky Point Jazz Festival

In 2002, the Smithsonian Institute determined April as Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM), and then in November 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designated April 30th as International Jazz Day.

Jazz was born in the US and traveled the world as a music of tolerance, freedom and human dignity. This is why UNESCO created International Jazz Day. This event reminds us Jazz is more than music.

This year the 5th International Jazz Day will be celebrated at  Malecon Fundadores. Headlining the event will be Nayo Jones, along with Carlos Rivas and his Mex-Sal orchestra, among other local and international artists. So let’s unite, communicate, and enjoy some beach diplomacy by taking in festivities to honor International Jazz Day right here in Puerto Peñasco with two nights of jamming under the stars, April 22nd and 23rd.
