The Big Bend National Park is the only national park in all of Texas, it was created in 1944, and its name comes from the curve of the Rio Grande which is actually a natural boundary. It’s not just a simple park, but also:
- A beautiful region that even includes part of the Chihuahua Desert
- An expanse of mountains that reach a point of 2700m altitude as well as a vast desert
- Hectares of deserts (hence the name “DESPLOADO” meaning “inhabited land” given by Spanish explorers)
- 1200 varieties of plants
- 450 types of birds and more than 75 species of mammals, more than 67 species of amphibians and reptiles.
- The magnificent carpets of flowers that cover the entire desert with flowers, observed in spring
- The different canyons of the region such as Boquillas Canyon (In the south you will find many hiking trails to discover them).
You will really have something to take your breath away during your visit. The best time to go is from October to April.
