DescriptionNogales (noh-GAH-lehs) is rich in history; Franciscan missionary Fray Marcos de Niza entered Santa Cruz County as early as 1539. Hollywood actors made cowboy films in the area during the 1940s.
Mexico's Pacific Highway, a four-lane divided highway, starts in Nogales and continues through Guadalajara, Mexico, with connecting roads to Mexico City. Nogales is a popular port of entry for U.S. travelers as well as for more than 75 percent of winter fruits and vegetables shipped throughout the United States and Canada. Retail and wholesale trade with northern Mexico also is an important industry in the town. Passports are required for visitors planning to cross into Mexico.
