Rio Rico

Rio_rico

 

Located at the edge of the Coronado National Forest in Southern Arizona, Rio Rico is known for its serene mountain beauty and upscale resort offerings, including golf. 

Around 55 miles south of Tucson, surrounded by ghost towns, birding havens and more, you’ll find plenty to see and do in Rio Rico – even a trip south of the border, which is just 10 miles away.
