L A J I T A S, T E X A S

Lajitas is a resort town located just of Big Bend National Park between Big Bend Ranch State Park and the Rio Grande River. Across the Rio Grande on the Mexican side is Paso Lajitas, which used to be accessed by an informal border crossing but that has been closed. Lajitas used to be a favorite destination for visiting the big bend area of Texas but since the airport has moved away, the border crossing has closed, the beer-drinking goat died, and room prices have tripled, the appeal has diminished. We prefer to visit the new Big Bend Ranch State Park.

The rugged country of the Lajitas area.
