Living in Hermosillo

InterNations welcomes you to the network for expats living in Hermosillo and all around the world. We invite you to use this platform to get in touch with fellow expatriates, to share advice and get information that will help you acclimatize to life in Hermosillo. Sunny all year round and especially hot in summer, Hermosillo has been nicknamed The City of the Sun. It’s also a city of great tradition and culture, where citizens put a high value on family and tradition. Expats willing to embrace its culture have found their attempts appreciated by the locals, who often respond by helping to make newcomers feel at home. However, the pace of life may be somewhat slower than many an expatriate is used to and, although frustrating at times, can quickly become a welcome aspect to life in Hermosillo. Nevertheless, Hermosillo is a modern city with restaurants, shops and all other amenities you would expect, plus excellent roads and fast internet. You’ll find plenty to see and do and be able to get in touch with other expats online and offline. Visit Palacio de Gobierno en Hermosillo and view its colorful murals depicting the history and mythology that has shaped Mexico and the region of Sonora, of which Hermosillo is the capital city. If that’s not your scene, there are plenty of places to meet for a cold drink and a chat about a mutual sport, hobby or simply about life in Hermosillo.

Moving to Hermosillo

Moving to Hermosillo, like any other relocation, has its challenges. If you have young children, you will want to know what Hermosillo has to offer them, and how easy it is to communicate with the locals. Most people in Hermosillo speak some English, especially younger people who are required to speak a certain level of English as a requisite to completing their studies. Among Hermosillo’s public and private schools, it’s possible to find bilingual education, but some expatriates in Hermosillo prefer to place their children in Spanish speaking schools, while getting outside language assistance to help integrate their kids more quickly. InterNations is on hand to help make moving to Hermosillo easier by providing a networking platform for expats to get information and share advice so they don’t feel isolated as they settle in.

Working in Hermosillo

As you would expect from any modern and growing city, Hermosillo offers a full range of employment opportunities, but naturally the language barrier can be an obstacle for an expat considering work in Hermosillo. Industry and manufacturing has made a big and ongoing impact from the 1980s with the establishment of the automobile industry. Electronic and IT organizations are big employers here and there are also many established international brands of all kinds operating alongside local business. If you’re moving here because you have a job to come to, no doubt you will already be well-informed about working in Hermosillo, but there’s always more to learn. How better to stay informed than to network with like-minded expats on InterNations and share advice on working in Hermosillo.
