Dwelling in Nogales, AZ, which borders Nogales, Sonora Mexico, I’ve come to comprehend that Mexico and Southern Arizona have each gotten an amazingly dangerous status.
Granted, Mexico has it is points, however to disregard the huge alternatives that this nation affords to the multi-sport athlete could be an error. I’m particularly talking of a bit of fishing village about 5 hours south of Nogales, Arizona. San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico is a sports activities lovers paradise.
I found this gem within the tough fairly by chance and even earlier than I even grew to become fascinated about multi-sports. Engaged on the border for a number of years I lastly obtained up sufficient braveness to make the leap and begin exploring the vastness of Mexico. Sixteen years later and I’ve discovered the language, traveled the whole Western Mexican Coast, and married a senorita from down there. The cultural experiences, adventures, and pleasant individuals make this place too good to be scared away by the fixed media barrage of stories of violence.
