The downtown and Plaza Zaragoza reflect the past and the present of the city by combining its history, architecture, and urban style. In both places, you can find shops, local festivities, street food vendors, restaurants, bars, markets, as well as historical buildings.

The sunsets are characteristic of Hermosillo, they have given it the name of The City of the Sun, for its beautiful purple, orange, blue, and yellow colors, which are a natural spectacle that you cannot miss. One of the best places to see this spectacle, as well as a panoramic view of the city is from the Cerro de la Campana, you can reach the hilltop by driving or walking, although most people agree that walking is more enjoyable.

Although Hermosillo is not a coastal community and is located in the Sonoran Desert, you will be surprised to find out that just a few hours away are the beautiful beaches of Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point), San Carlos, Kino Bay, and Huatabampo.
