Santa Cruz County: 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 naturally oriented recreation. Numerous state and national parks are scattered throughout the region, enticing hikers, birdwatchers, and cacti impersonators with eclectic ecology. Fertile grounds and a fruitful monsoon season nurture juicy red and white grapes, resulting in a bevy of wineries populating the Sonoita-Elgin region, about 30 miles northeast of Rio Rico.

Authentic Mexican cuisine and wares spill across the U.S.-Mexico border about 10 miles from Esplendor Resort in Nogales, a border town full of restaurants and shopping that offers a taste of Sonoran culture on the northern side of the international boundary. For those whose cultural curiosity is piqued by the town's attractions, pedestrian access from Nogales across the border makes trans-country travel enticingly easy.
