Esplendor Resort at Rio Rico

Set among rolling mountains, overlooking the lush green Santa Cruz River Valley amid centuries of history, Esplendor Resort is a one-of-a-kind resort destination in southern Arizona. Treat mind, body and soul to unsurpassed resort services, or indulge in recreational amenities like world-class golf on our Robert Trent Jones Sr. championship course, horseback riding through the Santa Cruz River Valley, tennis on four lighted courts, or bask in the Arizona sun poolside.

Arizona’s breathtaking sunsets are truly a sight to behold, and Esplendor’s location is perfect for exploring along the historic De Anza trail or any number of nearby historic sites. The resorts architecture, decor and ambience speak to the history and culture of the Santa Cruz Valley with accents of the Native American, Spanish, Mexican, and the old west. Our dining room brings the wonderful tastes of each culture alive at your table, and the resort is close to renowned bird watching reserves, the Tubac artisan colony, great hiking trails, and three other championship golf courses. Transportation is available both to and from the airport and a total of 12 airlines provide service to Tucson with 69 daily flights including 16 direct flights. Tucson is a quick 40 minutes north on Interstate 19, and Nogales, Mexico is just 20 minutes south of Esplendor.
