Presidio sits on the borderland of Texas and Mexico, where locals often say, “the River has never divided us”. The two largest rivers in this region of the Big Bend join one another here in Presidio: the Rio Grande and Rio Conchos. It has a long and documented past as a cultural crossroads and has served as a traveler destination for centuries. Native tribes and early settlers were drawn to the rich soil of the area historically known as “La Junta de los Rios”. Water is life and that truth is accentuated here in the unique landscape of the Chihuahuan Desert.
Presidio, located in the furthest regions of stunningly gorgeous west Texas, lies at the crossroads of a plethora of “bucket list” activities. This pleasant town, located in the Big Bend Region just minutes from the Mexican border, is the ideal base for experiencing the region’s fascinating culture and picturesque landscapes.
The town of Presidio welcomes travelers with its quaint local eateries and accommodations, regular events and historic sites like St. Teresa de Jesus de Avila Catholic Church, whose origins date back to an early 19th Century Spanish mission. With friendly folks and stunning scenery, Presidio guarantees you’ll make new memories—and some new friends, too.
