Get in[edit]

By plane[edit]

By train[edit]

There is no passenger train service in much of Mexico with the exception of the Copper Canyon Railway between Chihuahua (nearest Mexican train station) and Los Mochis through the Copper Canyon. Only commercial freight carrier cars travel the rails up into Nogales from both sides. From the U.S. side the nearest passenger train service is the Amtrak Sunset Limited (Los Angeles to New Orleans via San Antonio) and the Texas Eagle (Los Angeles to Chicago via San Antonio) passing through Tuscon

By car[edit]

  • From further up in the U.S., take I-19 South from Tucson until the valley becomes narrow. Here you will find the narrowest point, where Nogales is located. I-19 begins from I-10 going through Tucson between Phoenix and El Paso at Exit #260 in South Tucson.
  • From further south in Mexico, take Mexican Federal Highway 15D (Carretera Federal 15D) North, which goes along the Pacific Coast from Tepic up to Nogales. Federal Highway 15D ends at the main border crossing station with the U.S.

Finitos is a very famous local drink of the shaved ice type. It is not the same shaved ice that one typically finds at a ballgame; this one is extremely unique. It is definitely a city favorite and known by all who live in and around Nogales for its high quality. In addition, it comes in a large range of flavors to meet any personal preference. Don't hesitate to try this local treat.
