Border Towns

  Shopping at border town curio shops  

From the elegant and glitzy to the down and dirty, border towns offer an escape to another world, just a short walk across the border.




Border towns are among the most visited party destinations in Sonora, if for no other reason than their close proximity to the U.S.

For just a short drive, or a short walk, across the border, you are suddenly immersed in another culture, another world.

Many will argue that border towns are not typical Mexican towns. And it's true. Especially near the border, curio shops and service establishments cater to foreign visitors.

The language, money and culture are different, and in many aspects border towns have their own unique characteristics and attractions.
