The Destination
About 55 miles south of Tuscon and ten miles north of the border, the town of Rio Rico basks in the near-constant sunshine of the Santa Cruz River Valley. But unlike other arid locales, the river keeps the landscape nice and green, making Rio Rico a popular destination for golfers and outdoor enthusiasts. Go beyond the boundaries of this quiet community and you may encounter native wildlife like coyotes, hummingbirds, and javelinas.

The Digs
Overlooking the verdant valley, Esplendor Resort at Rio Rico invites guests to its 179 rooms, each uniquely decorated with plenty of Southwestern flair, not to mention private patios or balconies for watching the Arizona sunset. Beyond its colorful accommodations, the resort offers an array of activities and two on-site restaurants. Catch a match on one of the four lighted tennis courts or stroll along the nature trail. The grounds boast a championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. as well as an Olympic-size swimming pool.

  • "This isolated hotel and conference center has a historic, rather than hokey, Western feel, with vistas of open prairie and an elongated bar reminiscent of a Tombstone saloon... Most guests come for excellent golf, splendid views, and seclusion."
