What are the outdoor activities that I can do around Nogales?
A: There are many outdoor activities to experience in our area. Starting from downtown Nogales, the Pimeria Alta Historical Society & Museum (0.9miles/4 minutes from hotel) is a must for history buffs wanting to learn about the northern Pima Indians that once occupied the area. This small museum has a rotating display of artifacts. Once you are done there, you can take one of three self-guided historical walking tours of downtown Nogales (0.9miles/4minutes from hotel). You will find maps for all three walks at www.nogalesusa.com.
The walks cover short distances but are varying degrees of difficulty (the town of Nogales is built on small hills) and will showcase what early Nogales was like through the architecture of the homes still standing from the early 20th century. If bird watching is an interest, then you might know already that the Patagonia - Sonoita Creek Preserve (17.6mi/28minutes from hotel) is a premier birding area during the bird migration season. This location is the center of the Santa Cruz county birding area and is not to be missed.
If you're interests run more towards wine tasting, then the high desert area of the Mountain Empire is the place for you to go. Down load the Sonoita/Elgin Wine Trail map at https://www.arizonawine.org/sonoitaWineTrail.html, select two or three wineries from the ten on the map to visit. We recommend beginning at the Dos Cabezas Wine Works. They are growing into a wine brand to watch in the community. If you're looking for a combination of shopping, hiking and history, visit to Tubac Presidio State Historical Park (21.6miles/25minutes from hotel).
You'll find a small museum, picnic grounds and the trail head to the Anza Trail all in one place. After spending time there, take yourself over to the small arty town of Tubac where within a half mile radius you'll find over 50 local artisans making and selling silver and turquoise jewelry, hammered iron decorative arts, painted clay pots and more. And shopping isn't complete without those tasty bites and cool refreshments offered at several restaurants and cafes scattered throughout town.
Is the hotel close to the major produce warehouses in Nogales?

Several times a day produce trucks coming from Mexican farms cross into the U.S. through Mariposa Port of Entry bringing their produce to one of the many produce distribution and custom houses located 3 miles north of the Quality Hotel Americana. As a member of the Fresh Produce Association of American (FPAA) located in Nogales, AZ, we work with the many distributors to offer a home away from home for the produce truck drivers en route to various destinations within the U.S. and Mexico.
Are there dental clinics and hospitals near the border?
