We are in Southern Sonora 400 miles/640 kilometers south of Nogales. The International Highway runs to within 30 miles/50 kilometers of our compound; located in “real” Mexico as opposed to a resort. We chose Huatabampito because we wanted to live with real/regular/normal people. Our community is productive in terms of agricultural and seafood. It is culturally diverse featuring ranches, Indigenous communities, fishing villages and a nearby city.
