All sites have services. There is free Wifi, but you need to go outside your RV to get good reception. It is very weak.
You can walk to town and then catch a taxi to the Centro Historical. The cost was 40 pesos. We really enjoyed the atmosphere in this city and stayed 5 days. Mornings started cool and by the afternoon it was in the mid to high twenty's.

You can see how some of the locals dress in some of these pictures. They have very distinctive clothing
Farmers market ( excellent prices if you bargain with the vendor). John and I bought cornmeal muffins, candy and other pastries. We bought bookmarks for 10 pesos ea. I bought a change purse for 10 pesos and we bought two pullovers for 80 pesos each. You can see me wearing mine in one of the pictures near the bottom of this page.
Restaurant where John and I had lunch (twice!!!)
John had the tacos on the left and I had the Cubana Torta ( both were delicious and inexpensive). The meal along with two beer cost us 150 pesos
John and I walked up hill to this church and then we had to walk all these stairs to get into the church. It was a definite workout!
John resting at the top!!!
Main church in the square
You might ask what is in the bag Angela is carrying? It is Padre Kino red wine. This is the first place we could find it.
Lunch two at our favorite restaurant. Sorry about the picture being a little blurry. John had a different type of taco and I had Huevos Mexicana
