Agua Prieta Coa“Agua Prieta is a small city that sits on the border with the US border. Since the Free Trade Agreement was signed, Agua Prieta has benefited from a number of maquiladoras – foreign-owned factories that manufacture and assemble products for export.
For the average tourist Agua Prieta functions as a gateway to and from the US. You can pick up supplies at a local market or one or two of the modern shopping centers.”
