Route of the Rio Sonora


 

Agua Prieta, Sonora

 


Agua Prieta is one of two gateways to the Rio Sonora region. The port of entry in Agua Prieta is open 24 hours per day, however car permits can only be obtained during regular business hours. Migracion (Immigration) is on the right as soon as you cross the border and is co located with the car permit office at Benjercito.

The town of Agua Prieta, Sonora was established in 1899 after originally having been settled by the Chiricahua Apache Indians. The name means "Dark Water" in Spanish.  In 1915, Pancho Villa engaged the Mexican federales in a pitched battle in Agua Prieta in which Villa suffered a major defeat.

Agua Prieta is a popular shopping area for southern Arizona residents. Saddlery and boot making are highlights of Agua Prieta craftsmen along with handmade pottery, blankets and other Mexican wares. The principal economic activity in the area is manufacturing with several maquilladora firms operating in Agua Prieta. Agua Prieta is also a major commercial port for Mexican products and goods being exported to the United States. Agriculture is also important with large cattle ranching operations in the area.
