When in South Texas' Lower Rio Grande Valley, you are always reminded that the Republic of Mexico
is just a few minutes away.
Whether you are just walking across the Rio Grande River to shop or eat, or are planning a wildlife
watching trip to Mexico, these links should be of help.
In the same amount of time it takes to drive from the Valley to Houston, you can be in the cloud
forests of El Cielo. In less time than it takes to drive from the Rio Grande Valley to Austin, you can be in in the
valleys by Cd. Victoria, and in less time than it takes to drive from the Valley to the Aransas NWR, you can be in the mountains
Wildlife watching in Mexico is a blast. Mexican birds, and Mexican butterflies are well worth
searching for..go for it! ¡Visite México!
