This might seem like a post more applicable to the International board, but then again, it isn't.
Am curious to know if it's popular to drive south of the border from AZ to play/eat/drink? Nogales seems obvious, but do folks venture to the gulf of California, etc? Where do you go?
Again, I'm not posting this on the International board because I'm not seeking a place to vacation... rather a destination worth exploring within a few hours drive of AZ. I'd never advise people to charter a trip to Puerto Nuevo, for example, but for San Diegans, it's a nice spot for eating lobster within 100 miles.
Likewise I'm not seeking to debate Cabo vs. Mazatlan, etc. These are major destinations that require a big journey. What I seek here is some thoughts on busting out of the AZ scene into a somewhat nearby Mexican town and what you've liked/disliked.
