Nogales Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 9 photos

Hi ventured down here with my good friend John a fellow from scottsdale arizona whod been coming down here since he was 17 which is what a lot of american kids do as they cant drink in the states until there 21, well my friend John was around 23 and new everyone down here sth of the border and spoke fluent spainish which im trying to learn now haha,so getting around was easy its only around a 2hour drive to this border town and you get a real taste of mexico, we parked the car at the burger king on the u.s. side and casually strolled across.the change is huge it wasnt long before i was approached by a kid wanting to shine my shoes and various other street hawkers, it also wasnt long before i found myself in a bar drinking 100 year old tequilla and singing songs with three crazy mexicans make that 4 including myself at 10am in the morning..

Its an easy stroll around the centre of town lots of great souveniers on hand great little eateries and bars on offer..

Those crazy guys

Went to a bar my friend new about, wat a blast haha , it turned out to be bar that used in the movie traffic it certainly lived up to its name haha i dont know whos more corrupt here the criminals or the police, wait there i know . Sitting at the bar drinking beer it was easy to make friends one guy was a customs officer the other guy was well im not sure ..

    Haha! I spent New Year 1983 in Nogales! Got very adept at drinking tequila, and bought a woolen blanket there that is still used! I don't remember too much detail about it though!
