What are the particular advantages of living in this city?
The local people are kind, and this is the first post at which I've actually made friends with local staff. Hermosillo is a lot like Southern Arizona, which is both a positive and a negative. It's a relatively middle-class city, and people are quite comfortable with Americans. - Aug 2015
We have found the people to be very friendly. Hermosillo looks like a city but is really just a small town. Everyone knows (or is related to) everyone else, and once you have made some friends, your circle grows quite quickly. We have really enjoyed the food. Lots of delicious carne asada, grilled vegetables, etc. The majority of the year, the weather is delightful. Access to the beaches in San Carlos (1.5 hrs) and Bahia Kino (1 hr) has been wonderful. Finally, we have very small children and have been able to enjoy our school community and the activities available for kids here- Parque Infantil (a little amusement park for the under 8 crowd), the zoo, ballet classes, Gymboree, Music Together, etc. - Apr 2013
