Navojoa

Sonora

Also known as the city of tunas or nopales, Navojoa is located at the south of Sonora, one hour from Hermosillo, and is the fifth most important city of the state.

In the heart of Valle del Mayo, which has the river of the same name, the main activity of the city is agriculture. However, its Yoreme-Mayo roots have a strong mark in all its tourist attractions.

The Mayo indigenous people, formerly called Yoreme (which means “He who respects tradition”), are an ancient ethnic group that is still alive.Thus, to go back three thousand years in their history, you can see the rock art they left in Tehuelibampo, 30 kilometers (18 miles) from Navojoa.

While those who wish to know their current uses and customs can visit the community of Masiaca, located 50 kilometers (31 miles) south of the city, where everyone is welcomed with a smile, beautiful crafts and delicious typical dishes.

At the centre of the city, the Plaza 5 de Mayo, the Church of el Sagrado Corazón, the Palacio Municipal (Municipal Palace) and the picturesque area of Pueblo Viejo on the banks of the Mayo River stand out, as well as the monuments to Álvaro Obregón and the Martyrs of Sahuaripa. One place to visit is the Museo de los Mayos, with rooms dedicated to the history of the city, the Yoreme-Mayo culture and temporary exhibitions.

The place can also be a starting point to visit El Pueblo Mágico de Álamos (The Magical Town of Alamos) or spend a relaxing day on the beaches of Huatabampo.
