Via your own car -- From Tucson to Hermosillo it is 235 miles and takes
approximately five hours (including the stop at the border station). You should
go through the border check point 21 km south of Nogales and ask for a Sonora
Only pass. If you plan on going beyond the State of Sonora or leaving Sonora
through another route port-of-entry, you must get the standard permit/hologram.
In either case, you will need: (1) a valid driver's license; (2) a photocopy of
the vehicle registration or title, or notarized authorization from your lienholder
(if this pertains); and (3) all passengers must have a passport, or a copy of their
birth certificate and a photo id to obtain a visa (visa forms may be picked up in
advance at many insurance companies selling Mexican insurance, or at the border
station). If you are traveling beyond Sonora you will need a major credit card (no
debit cards) and there will be a $10 charge to your card. Mexican vehicle insurance
should be purchased before crossing the border. You will be taking the Pan-American
Highway (Highway l5), from Nogales all the way to Hermosillo. There are two toll
booths on the highway, which charge $32 Mex./$4 U.S. (U.S. Currency accepted).

Via University of Arizona van -- University vans will leave at staggered times on
the day before the meetings (Thurs. Feb 5th) from Tucson. Vans will leave at 8am,
10am, 11am, 12noon, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm from the east end of the Tucson Airport terminal.
If you are driving as far as Tucson, there is a long-term city parking lot, marked
"Park and Save" that charges $4 per day with free shuttles to the airport terminal.
If you are interested in meeting the drivers at the University of Arizona instead,
the vans will make a stop one-half hour before the airport pickup in front (north
side) of the south building of the Arizona State Museum.

Via Air -- Several airlines have direct flights from Tucson to Hermosillo, Aeromexico
flies from Phoenix to Hermosillo. Tucson rates are generally less expensive, but be
sure to ask your travel agent to check both Phoenix and Tucson options.
