Come and explore the charm, beauty and culture of the Mexican state of Sonora.

Located south of the Arizona-Mexico border, Sonora offers a wide variety of climates to explore and experience, from the well-visited border towns to high Sonoran desert of Northern Sonora to coastal beaches, and a more tropical ecosystem in the south.

In addition to the variety of climates is the diversity of tourism activities to experience - attend a local festival, join an eco-tourism outing, or just take a stroll down the cobblestone street of a colonial pueblo.

And, best of all, as you explore, you will come to know the friendly people of Sonora, where you're always an "amigo."
