Majestic mountain views surround Rio Grande Ranchos, a subdivision located along the Rio Grande River, near the New Mexico border, and part of the San Luis Valley. In 2003 the National Geographic Society featured the area in its book Earth’s Last Great Places, calling it “unforgettable and irreplaceable.”
The San Luis Valley has a well-deserved reputation as a sportsman’s paradise. Herds of elk, deer and wild turkey roam the subdivision of Rio Grande Ranchos. Fish from the Rio Grande River are plentiful. Wild horses are also frequent visitors. (see photos in gallery).
No less than four boating and fishing lakes are within 45 to 50 minutes. Check out Zapata Falls, the many horse trails, and the fishing and boating lakes such as Smith Reservoir – stocked with trout, walleye and bass – within 45 minutes to an hour away. Other recreation options include the Great San Dunes National Monument with camping, hiking, ATV trails, and majestic views.
Ski and art enthusiasts can enjoy Taos, New Mexico, an easy 45 to 50 minutes south.

Other ski areas within 1 1/2 hour’s drive offer beginner, intermediate, and pro slopes with snowboarding areas.
Residents and sportsmen can enjoy the rural serenity of the valley while having easy access to Alamosa, 45 to 50 minutes to the northwest, where all the advantages of a four-year college, airport, and many shops and restaurants, including a new Wal Mart, are available. The town of San Luis, the oldest settlement in Colorado, is approximately 25 miles away.
