Cortez Overview

Cortez is located in Montezuma County in southwest Colorado. It is a great base from which to explore Mesa Verde National Park and San Juan National Forest.

Often referred to as the gateway to "canyon country", Cortez's economy is heavily dependent on tourism. This could also explain the large number of accommodation options for a comparatively small town.

Cortez is a good place for all services including food and camping supplies.
