Today, the abandoned mines and buildings attract numerous tourists, and Terlingua is a charming community that makes a great vacation destination. Terlingua vacation houses allow you to stay in comfort, without fighting for lodging with the other tourists in the area, and you have easy access to all the great things to see and do in the Terlingua area.

Big Bend Country lodging means you're close to all of the wonderful outdoor activities that Big Bend National Park is famous for. Try rafting on the Rio Grande, riding your motorcycle on the roadways in the area, hiking, or riding your mountain bike on the trails to burn some energy and get your adrenaline flowing during your vacation. Walk right out the door of Terlingua vacation rentals—exciting adventures at Big Bend await.

Ride for Mas o Menos

This four-day event is open to bike riders of all skill levels because of the multiple events they offer. Mas o Menos 100 culminates with a 100 kilometer mountain bike race through the rough terrain surrounding Terlingua.
