Rio Rico is on the cusp of outdoor adventure. Located at the edge of the Coronado National Forest in Southern Arizona, this town is known for its serene mountain beauty.
Around 55 miles south of Tucson, surrounded by ghost towns, birding havens, and a horizon of stunning mountain views, you’ll find plenty to see and do in Rio Rico – even a trip south of the border, which is just 10 miles away.
Bring your hiking boots, sunscreen, and plenty of water – you’ll want to hit the trails here (waterfalls await for cooling off during the summer season). And the town’s mission-style resort offers the perfect getaways – balance relaxing in the sauna with swinging away on a Robert Trent Jones, Sr.-designed golf course.Visit City Site
