Bacochibampo Bay is where Hotel Playa de Cortes in Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico is located. This is where we stayed January 24, 2016 during our trip to Sonora, Mexico. This traditional and historic hotel founded in 1936, proud of once welcoming celebrities like the mexican actress Maria Felix, the musician Ray Conniff and the American actress and singer Liza Minnelli, as well as important figures of the political world that made a home out of our Guaymas hotel. – See more at: http://www.hotelesgandara.com.mx/english/our-hotels-in-sonora/playa-de-cortes-guaymas/#sthash.ubOD2ngV.dpuf

Alamos, Sonora Trip — Tucson to Guaymas   3 comments

The trip began at 7:30 am after loading up the South of the Border Tours motorcoach in the SARA parking lot near Sabino Canyon, stopping to pick up Gloria Giffords in South Tucson and guide Greg Scott in Nogales. Our tour leader and bus driver for the next six days was Stephen Bernier, president of South of the Border Tours.

Throughout the trip to Alamos, which was during the 32nd Music Festival Alfonso Ortiz, Greg was our cultural interpreter/guide and Gloria, art conservator and historian, specializing in Spanish colonial art and architecture shared her knowledge and experience, as well as her love for pleine-air painting.

Once in Alamos, Stephanie Meyer, resident, field trained biologist, birder  and longtime guide for Stephen’a Alamos tours, shared her knowledge and interpretation of Mexico’s mestizo and indigenous cultures.

Traveling with us and preforming several times throughout the trip was the Ronstadt Generations (Michael Ronstadt, Petie Ronstadt and Alex Flores) who presented an exciting repertoire of traditional and new Southwestern and Mexican songs of their heritage with beautiful harmonies sung in English and Spanish.
