(Turn off to Aduana on the south side of the highway between Alamos and Navojoa. It's only a short drive into this small former silver mining town. Visit the old church which is the focus of a large yearly pilgrimage. The women's craft center shop is close by. They open when visitors arrive.)

Small local restaurants are always opening and closing, but Alamos cafes are worth a try.
Cafe Luz del Sol (5): is near the hotels on Obregon, breakfast and lunch.
Polo's (2): Calle Zaragoza 4, a side street off to the east of the Plaza, seafood and Mexican food.
El Mirador Restaurant on the Mirador overlook on Cerro del Perico (go out the El Fuerte road, turn left on the cobbled drive to the overlook). Dine with a panoramic view of Alamos and a cool breeze when the town is still hot. Mexican and seafood entrées.
Reyna's (5) on Calle Obregon between the hotels, local cafe with Sonoran food and friendly service.
There are more restaurants and cafes along the road into town.
