Santa Cruz County, Arizona: Scenic Desert Terrain Minutes from Mexican Border

Esplendor Resort's desert locale in Santa Cruz County puts it in the midst of a landscape teeming with wildlife and outdoor recreation opportunities. Numerous state and national parks are scattered throughout the region, enticing hikers, bird watchers, and cacti impersonators with their eclectic ecology. Fertile grounds and a fruitful monsoon season nurture juicy red and white grapes, resulting in a bevy of vineyards populating the Sonoita-Elgin wine region, about 30 miles northeast of Rio Rico.

About 10 miles south of the resort, authentic Mexican cuisine and crafts spill over from Mexico to Nogales, a border town full of restaurants and shopping. Pedestrian access to Mexico from Nogales makes transnational travel easy.
