Del Rio Overview
For the outdoorsy; if you like kayaking, sailing, swimming, snorkeling, scubadiving, cave exploring, geology, nature watching, or any other thing you can think of to do outdoors, then consider Del Rio for a visit.
Lake Amistad built as a reservoir along the Rio Grande. Has clean and warm waters, fine for swimming and an abundance of water sports. A popular activity is scuba diving, since the water is unusually clear, and there are interesting underwater rock formations including submerged caves. Lake Amistad is miles of spectacular limestone cliffs dotted with ancient caves rich with ancient pictography. The lake has plenty of open water, narrow walled canyons, and many coves. Excellent for fishing and camping. If you are into nature watching the area is great for birding, there is also the seasonal migration of the monarch butterfly. The area is a desert, most people tend to think of deserts as dry and barren, but deserts are 2nd only to rainforests when it comes to abundance and variety of flora and fauna.
Home to a winery, established in 1883, actually the oldest running winery in the state of Texas, good wine too! If you come for wine tasting, Del Rio has a quaint and cozy bed and breakfast. We also have the burial site of Judge Roy Bean. As well as San Felipe Springs another natural attraction. Some interesting shopping can be done if you are up for crossing the border for some Mexican curio shopping.
