  • Sea of Cortez

    Not exactly Hermosillo, but close by. Visit the coast and enjoy some of the natural beauty of the Sea of Cortez. While most folks in and around ""Hillo" consider the small resort area of San Carlos pretty interesting in terms of night-life, I would also plug the undeveloped, and under-developed areas of the coast that are populated by smaller...

    Drive out of Hermosillo and follow the route of the Sonora River, that's more or less what the Jesuits did (without benefit of cars) centuries ago as they founded their network of missions and visitas that dot the landscape between Hermosillo and Southern Arizona.
