This northwestern state of Mexico is filled with stunning scenic attractions. As the country’s second largest state, Sonora would be difficult to navigate without using a map. There are several border crossings between the U.S. and Mexico in Sonora such as Nogales and Agua Prieta. Many travelers visit Sonora simply to enjoy the festive border towns; however, travelers can also use the map to help them reach the capital city of Hermosilla or any of the state’s natural attractions like the El Pinacate Biosphere Reserve or the beaches of Puerto Penasco and San Carlos on the Sea of Cortez.

Navigating the Outlying Areas
While the Sonora map will help travelers find locations within the large towns and cities of Sonora, it is essential for navigating the outlying areas. Sonora is filled with rough desert terrain so drivers should be sure to have water and a cell phone in the event of a breakdown. The map will help guide travelers to fishing villages on the Sea of Cortez, archaeological sites scattered throughout the states, and, of course, many scenic regions. For navigating the remote locations of Sonora, be sure to have the map at the ready!
