    Hotel Los Arcos is well known to advenure motorcyclists traveling south of the border. We are mentioned in several ADV ride reports and have been written up in several publications including the BMW Riders News. ( Article here)

    We are in the safe and tranquil colonial town of Banàmichi, 140 miles south of Bisbee AZ on the Sonora River Route. This is your gateway to Alamos, San Carlos and the rest of Mexico away from the 4 lane toll road.

    Tom and Lynn are both avid motorcyclists and also own and operate Turkey Creek Motorcycle Tours. We live here full time, we know the roads and we know the area so call us if you have Mexico questions

    Who knows, you might convince us to go riding with you.

    ADV riders get a 10% discount at Hotel Los Arcos. Contact us for group specials.

    The weather is about perfect for riding in Northern Sonora. Cool clear mornings, warm afternoons and perfect evenings for sitting on the patio. Come on down

    Here is a nice complement from Ajinsan (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=810189&page=10)

    "@Tom, Lynn : you have a very nice place in Banamichi and for us, as first timers in Mexico, it was exactly what we needed to get accustomed with the different world. Based on my experience there, I would recommend anyone who wants to try Mexico to give you a shout. And there are so many excellent roads for motorcycling around (as I hope we will see in the next post :p) "

    Alex, thanks for the kind words.

    Los Arco's is a great place to stay if entering Mexico.
    An easy couple hundred miles to Tom's place, after getting all the paperwork done at the border,
    Los Arco's makes a perfect stop for the first day in country. Laid back and beautiful hotel to get into the Mexican pace. I can't wait to return. Till then.
