Situated where the Rio Grande River takes a big southerly dip in West Texas, Big Bend National Park covers a massive expanse of desert, woodlands, and grasslands full of rivers, limestone canyons, and high mountains. Nearly 2,000 species of plant and animal life call this place home.
You've now added Chisos Mountains to your itinerary. The adventure continues: explore the stunning scenery at Santa Elena Canyon, don't miss a visit to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set, trek along The Window Trail, and see a world frozen in time at Terlingua.

To see where to stay, ratings, photos, and tourist information, use the Big Bend National Park trip planning site .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 93°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
