Top Reasons to Stay at Esplendor Resort at Rio Rico

  • The resort has a number of family-friendly amenities, including a heated outdoor pool with a hot tub and four lighted tennis courts.
  • Guest rooms feature southwestern decor and have private balconies or patios with views of the San Cayetano Mountain or the Santa Cruz Valley.
  • For an additional fee, guests can rent clubs and play a round of golf at the Rio Rico Golf Club, an 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones. (A round of golf is included with an option in this getaway.)
  • If you opt for a getaway with a dining credit, you can use it toward hand-cut steaks, shrimp-and-scallop carbonara, and other continental dishes at San Cayetano Restaurant.

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

Esplendor Resort’s desert locale in Santa Cruz County is near tons of outdoor recreational opportunities. Numerous state and national parks are scattered throughout the region, attracting hikers, bird watchers, and cacti impersonators. Fertile soil and a fruitful monsoon season nurture juicy red and white grapes at a bevy of vineyards in the Sonoita-Elgin wine region, located 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 a breeze (so long as you have your passport).
