    Now you can drive from Phoenix, Tucson, and other Cities to the beach resort town of Puerto Penasco, MX. Is about 200 mile drive from central Phoenix, and only 65 miles from the border and very safe. My daughters regularly drive down with my grandkids.

    The chargers are at the Sonoran Sun resort on Sandy Beach. Available free for owners and guests, and a small charge for others.. There are two chargers for Teslas and one for other electric cars.

    Just saw this after I happened to look up on Tesla Destination Charger search today. Great to know. I was begging for one of the resorts to get some put in. Thought and hoped it would be Las Paloma's, where I usually stay. But Sonoran Sun is fine if they do allow others to charge for a nominal fee...

    Any idea how much that fee is?

    Bumping old post - has anyone NOT staying at the resort successfully charged here, and if so, how much was the fee and how did it go?

    We met a fellow owner down there this weekend that used the destination charger at Sonoran Sun. He was not staying there so they charged him $20 for two hours or $50 for a full charge. (US$ not Mx peso). We informed him that he would've been better off to drive half mile down to the RV park and pay $20 for the same thing.

    He also commented that the charger was slow (14A) but I have no way to confirm this as it was word-of-mouth.
