TRIP TO BANAMICHI, SONORA April 16-18!

We'll caravan up, spending two nights in this little town 2 1/2 hrs NE of Hermosillo!

Once there, Hotel La Posada del Rio Sonora will have margaritas available at their rooftop bar. Save your appetite 'cause after that, just 100 meters away, Hotel Los Arcos de Sonora will offer our group all you can eat wood fired adobe oven pizza, including salad bar, happy hour snacks and soft drinks, for just 200 pesos! Enjoy my show...and BYOB!

Tuesday? You won't want to miss our FUN optional trip to the nearby La Martina Ranch for a hands-on demo on producing "bacanora" (w/sample of course!), roasting cowboy coffee and making giant flour tortillas. Then, we'll sit and enjoy a BIG all you can eat buffet of ranch-cooked tamales and Mexican food. It was THE highlight of last trip, for just 400 pesos. (It's BYOB, with coolers, ice and soda provided for you, and ranch-produced bacanora available for purchase.)

That evening at Posada del Rio Sonora we'll once again enjoy rooftop drinks and sunset, and the restaurant below will offer dinner! Hotel Los Arcos will be open for dinner too, and BOTH hotels offer great breakfasts!

There's also a nearby hot spring in case you'd like to enjoy that, AND some beautiful mission churches you can visit on your way back!

DISTANCE? About 4 1/2 hours from San Carlos

FOREIGN VEHICLES? There are NO car permit checkpoints between Banamichi and Hermosillo, and every day American plated vehicles take tourists to our host hotels. Leading the caravan, I'll provide each driver (or carpool) with my cell # so we all arrive with no problem.

COST OF THE TRIP? Simply book your own room and pay for your meals and drinks! Tip whatever you want for my show, and the ranch trip and buffet (400 pesos) is optional!

LODGING? You'll LOVE the charm of our two host hotels, La Posada del Rio Sonora and Hotel Los Arcos de Sonora. Here are links to BOTH so you can reserve while rooms are still available:

Both hotels are small and sell out quickly!
