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.
Big Bend National Park is known for nature, trails, historic sites, scenic drive, and adventure. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Chisos Mountains, don't miss a visit to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set, explore the striking landscape at The Balanced Rock, and explore the stunning scenery at Santa Elena Canyon.

To see photos, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Big Bend National Park trip itinerary site .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 93°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
