Iglesia de San Rafael in Trincheras, Sonora

Tourist News, Observations and Insights of Sonora, Mexico

The state of Sonora covers a large area of land and has a marvelous variety of natural beauty, history, culture, culinary delights, activities and experiences to enjoy. I love exploring Sonora, meeting its people, capturing moments in photographs and learning about all the state has to offer.

But Sonora is not Disneyland. Although we have personally never felt threatened there, I understand that any tourist locale has its inherent risks, and Sonora is no exception.

So this page is where we will post news and information of interest to tourists, including travel advisories, as well as images of this marvelous place and its people.

And we invite you to participate with your comments, and share information, experiences and images from your Sonoran travels. I want this to be a place where travelers and those interested in traveling can get a clear picture of the current environment south of the border, fun places to visit, unique experiences and any other information that may have an impact on Sonoran travel.

Thanks for visiting this page, please come back and visit us often! And if you have Sonora tourism-related experiences or insights to share, please contact us.
