Summary

If you are curious to learn what exactly is Sonoran food and how it differs from wider Mexican cuisine, this gastronomic tour of Nogales will clarify the regional characteristics of our vibrant southern neighbor while providing a background in cultural heritage. Visitors to Nogales, Sonora are often geographically limited to walking distance in the main tourist zones for dining options while visiting south of the border. This tour takes you off that beaten path and deeper into Nogales to the modern gastronomic zone of local Nogalenses.  This tour is your chance to taste and see for yourself.

Experience Nogales beyond the tourist zone through its vibrant culinary scene while supporting borderlands nonprofit work! Proceeds from BCA's gastronomic tour go to support Nogales, Sonora's Down Association Chef Skills program

This NY Times featured daytrip begins with a visit to the landmark symbol of Nogales - the statues known as Monument to Benito Juarez and the Mono Bichi. A dedicated stop for a mariscos taco and agua fresca at a Sonoran Sea of Cortez seafood restaurant is followed by a short craft beer orientation and tasting at Argova Brewing Company. The tour fee includes transportation by Mercedes Sprinter, guide, as well as a multi-course meal at a modern central Mexican cuisine dining venue, La Llorona. We'll also visit the historic old plaza de toros bullfighting ring. This is a unique opportunity for craft beer enthusiasts and those passionate for Latin American cooking.
