Sonora’s capital offers great options in entertainment, art, culture, history, beaches, spas, museums, architecture and gastronomy.
A city with flavor
Sonora is known for being one of the world’s best meat producers; that’s why its gastronomy is based mostly on meats, steaks and pork products. Try the deliciously grilled cuts, the stews made with Sonora chorizo, and the traditional caramel tacos and tostadas Lorenza. Due to its proximity to the ocean, fresh seafood is highly regarded. There are many and varied restaurants, live-music cafes, bars, and nightlife for every taste.
Hermosillo’s Dream Beaches
Bahia Kino, less than 100 Kms. from Hermosillo, offers impeccable white sand beaches and a great variety of water activities to tourists year-round. At Kino Viejo, try the just freshly-caught oysters and clams.
In addition to the beaches’ natural beauty, Hermosillo is frequented by ecotourists from all over the world.

Tiburon Island, the largest natural island reserve in the country, is ideal for all of these activities. There are many ranches offering lodging, hiking, horseback riding, camping and bird-watching. Hermosillo hosts the Vuelta Ciclista, one of the most important cycling events in Mexico. There are plenty of mountain bike routes for every level. The Sonora River Route offers a close encounter with nature and Sonoran history. If you’re looking for adventure and natural attractions, this is your city!
Hermosillo for Families
The capital of Sonora offers diverse places for children, such as the Ecology Center of Sonora, which hosts a zoo, a botanical garden and an Astronomical Observatory.
