an old Mexicana is a ripe target

I think driving with a senorita would be a riper target!

Yes, true that.  Both are bad optics.

The only point I would like to make, is in my experience the route that I discussed--San Luis Rey to Puerto Penasco, is fairly busy with many commercial and local traffic!

In fact, if you pull over to take a couple minute "pit-stop" (You guys know what I mean--there's not alot of bathrooms around)-you need to watch that a passing vehicle doesn't

see you! So, being that we will be traveling prime time (0900-1300) on a Thursday, that this will deter a carjacking experience?? There's always plenty of traffic on this well 

traveled section of MEX-3.

 (Note: I could travel solo as well)--note taking a bus isn't an option for me, since I love the freedom of having my own vehicle.

Thoughts folks????????

Sounds like you are minimizing the risks, but some risk is still there.  I would do it.

Here you go.  The pin is where my friend was carjacked but the encircled area is where other carjackings have been happening unfortunately.  With highway 2 being the worst between the pin which is Y Griega and Santa Ana.

@Surfer 123. great thanks!

Right, this has always been a cartel infused area!

I will limit myself to staying NORTH of Puerto Penasco, and certainly realize that anyone can be a victim at any time, any where.

Just have to weigh the odds.

Thanks for sharing the area of interest!

VIVA MEXICO!
