ShoppingNOGALES, Ariz. – The community of Nogales, Sonora is inviting tourists to experience their community in the coming months.

Manuel Hopkins is the director of economic development in Nogales, Sonora, in Mexico. He said tourism used to be the second largest economic driver in the community of 350,000 but that changed. Hopkins said Nogales’ new mayor Ramon Guzman’s philosophy is, “Nogales es tu casa,” which means Nogales is your home.

According to Hopkins, one of the ways the new administration hopes to increase tourism is to pledge public safety by inviting authorities to attend scheduled events, “one of the ideas is that we really want to expand the activities in Nogales, Mexico so we’re offering more things to do in Nogales.”
