With its unique intersection of history, climate and geography, Álamos, Sonora is one of the most fascinating places to visit in northern Mexico. Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Occidental range, and in the transition zone between the Sonoran Desert and the subhumid tropical south, the community was originally founded as a silver mine or real de minas in the late 17th century. The colonial town is one of Sonora’s two Pueblo Magicos and inhabits a remarkable but endangered biome known as the dry tropics. Historically, Álamos represents the northern outpost of traditional Spanish colonial urban centers with mining centered economies such as Guanajuato, Zacatecas and Durango. 


This inclusive 5 night - tour includes an overnight in San Carlos on the way down and Hermosillo on the return north to make the trip down to Álamos more comfortable.  This trip has the added advantage of being a small group visit (no more than 14 guests) for a more intimate Sonoran experience.
