Sonora - Post Report Question and Answers

Are there personal security concerns to be aware of at this post? Please describe.

High crime, off limits areas in the city. - Jul 2020

Yes, our travel is limited to certain parts of the city. In our time here there have been a couple of major shootings not too far from where we live. You cannot travel outside of the city in the dark. For the most part, Nogales is the sleepiest of the border towns and violence happens, but not nearly as often as it does in the other cities. We have felt completely safe and free to go around the city at night to try new places to eat, but at the same time we are aware of our surroundings and don't let our guard down. With that being said we really like it here! - Aug 2011
