Located in the heart of southwest Colorado, Salida is well known for its mountains, Western culture, and lots of outdoor activities and attractions—all of which can be enjoyed with the convenience of your Salida rental found on VRBO.com.

You won't want to forget your camera for these vistas!
Many influences combined to make up the history of Salida and Chaffee County including being originally settled by the Ute tribe. The area also experienced an influx of many other groups including farmers and ranchers, miners, expansionists, and explorers. Each of these groups made a distinct mark that is evident throughout the valley.
Salida Is the Banana Belt of Colorado
Imagine enjoying what is known as the "Banana Belt" from your lovely Salida lodging property. The area received this name because harsh storms are tempered by surrounding mountains. But just minutes away skiers and snowboards and enjoy the exceptional winter conditions at Monarch Mountain. In the summer enjoy rafting, hiking, biking, and a visit to Mesa Verde National Park.
