​First thing first, Mexican Border City or Mexican Border State?

There is a difference when we talk about a border city vs a border state. Think about the USA for a second; California and Texas are very large states that are on the border, however when you go north from the border, the lifestyle changes drastically, to the point you do not realize you are on the US / Mexico border. Same takes place in Mexico.

Sonora for example, is the second largest state in Mexico. It covers about 69K squared miles and has over 3 million people living in it. Hermosillo is the capital and the state itself has over 830 thousand people living in it. 

There is 3 major border cities, to the west you will find San Luis Rio Colorado/Yuma, AZ, central is Nogales, and far east Agua Prieta/Douglas, AZ. The biggest one of the three being Nogales, Sonora with over 400K people living here. 

A border city has a different culture than the rest of the state or the nation. There is a lot more bilinguals that live on the border, that you may not find in other location and taking Nogales as an example, its location has a very close proximity to Tuscon International Airport (TUS). You will also find a lot faster past style of work, and a bit more Americanized culture. Where the rest of the state is still tied to their ever day traditions. What you find in the border cities and a lot of shared cultural traditions that apply to both counties. A border state is not the same as a border city.  

There are Pros and Cons to a specific location you choose; border city, city in a border state, or a city located in another location of the nation. We would enjoy to sit down with you and go over each.
