What Others Are Saying

For our New Year’s holiday, a group of 20 friends from Southern Arizona, spent three delightful days at La Posada Del Rio Sonora in Banamichi, Sonora, Mexico. We had secured all 10 rooms / suites for our private celebration! This historic property, on the plaza (zocolo) of Banamichi, is a beautiful little ecotourism hotel. The vibrant colors of Mexico are used throughout the establishment and beautiful Mexican tile work is everywhere. Each room is decorated differently with special attention to detail and comfort. One truly feels as though they have entered a hidden oasis when they arrive at La Posada! From the lush plant filled courtyard… to the sunset terrace for happy hour… to the beautiful dining room (the food was wonderful) for meals…one cannot say enough about this charming little hotel! The owners, Darrin & Cheri Jones, and the hotel manager, Carmen, took great care in making sure our visit was meaningful and relaxing. Darrin arranged outings to a local lariat / riata craftsman and a mesquite furniture craftsman. Another stop was made at a local bacanora distillery. Thank you all for a wonderful visit… We’ll be back!!
