Enjoy Stunning Views of the Surrounding Mountains from Your Own Private Corner of Scenic Costilla County!!

This scenic, wide-open property is just 8 miles from the beautiful Rio Grande River and 30 miles from the town of Fort Garland, home of the historic fort that was the last command of Kit Carson. It’s another 200 miles north to Denver, and 200 miles south to Albuquerque. Located 15 miles to the east is the nearest small town of San Luis, the oldest town in Colorado, founded in 1851.

Bounded to the west by the Rio Grande River, Costilla County was originally settled as part of a Mexican land grant. Costilla possesses its own unique natural and cultural heritage of the great outdoors and the old west that’s hard to resist. This 5-acre property in the Rio Grande Ranchos is your chance to own a private piece of that special heritage in a great spot to get away from it all.

The 5-acre plot is near County Road 142 outside San Luis, Colorado. The property has spectacular natural views in all directions, thanks to its location in the middle of a number of different mountain ranges. Its close proximity to the Rio Grande River means that after an active morning of hiking in the hills, you can spend the afternoon swimming, floating, or just relaxing on the river banks. Come out and experience the fresh air and freedom you have been craving!!

The property is easily reached by a combination of excellent paved and dirt roads, making it no problem for you to bring your 2×4 or haul your camper for a great weekend away….or an even longer stay. You’ll be close to outstanding hiking spots in Great Sand Dunes National Park, Mt Blanca, Zapata, Trinchera Peak, Culebra Peak, and many more. You can hike a different trail every day and never run out of new options!

Are you a fisherman – or perhaps you’ve always wanted to become one? This is your chance, because you can’t beat the world class trout fishing nearby. How about hunting? There is an abundance of big game, wildlife, and even wild horses! There are also several great ski resorts close by. It all spells unending recreational opportunities within just a short drive of this slice of paradise. Make it your reality today!
