Sonora Offshore is located in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora which borders Arizona in the desert southwest. A vibrant “college town”, it is home to over 500,000 people. It is the second largest city in Sonora boasting:
- A modern power and fiber optic data infrastructure
- 40 hotels (several 4 star)
- 33 restaurants
- 14 supermarkets
- 8 hospitals (3 public and 5 private)
- One 18 hole golf course
- One semi-professional baseball team
- Nearby lake recreational area including world class fishing
While only 40 minutes to the beaches and resorts of San Carlos, Ciudad Obregon enjoys a mild dry climate with an average annual temperature of 76 degrees and rainfall of 14.5 inches. And with a low crime rate, it is considered a very livable city and a safe place to raise a family. Established industries such as textiles, electronic components, digital imaging, call/help centers, telecommunication and software help stabilize the local economy resulting in a very low turnover rate (<2%).
And the education system is first rate. There are 6 major public and private universities and 4 technical schools in the area graduating over 700 software engineers and technicians annually (includes Hermosillo, a 2 hour drive north of Obregon). English is taught on the college campuses and is spoken in most hotels and restaurants throughout the city.
Distance to Phoenix: 510 Miles.
Distance to Tucson: 398 Miles.
