Great Resources for Local Tourism and Business Information

Sonoran Offices of Conventions and Visitors, also known as OCVs, are locally run tourism promotion agencies that are the best sources for information about local places to visit in Sonora, Mexico.

They are staffed by local economic development professionals and owners of local hotels and other tourism-related businesses who have come together to provide a comprehensive presentation of the local tourist attractions, events, venues where you can host conferences and other activities, things to do, and the local business community and the products they produce.

OCVs are not only valuable online sources of information, but if you stop by an OCV office you can pick up brochures and the latest information about where to go and what to see in that city and region.

Most of the online and printed materials provided by OCVs is in Spanish, however many of the OCVs have English-speaking staff. If not, they will know enough English to be able to help you. And the maps and other graphics in their brochures and other materials make it easy to figure out the information, no matter what language it is in.
