Let’s all just take a minute and say ahhhh while we think back on our first true friend. Focus, don’t think about the time they filled your Oreos with toothpaste. Just the warm and fuzzies. That is how we feel about Amistad National Recreation Area, which represents the amistad (friendship in Spanish) between Del Rio, Texas and Ciudad Acuña in Mexico, who share the 65,000-acre Amistad Reservoir. The waters are one of this area’s biggest attractions and popular activities here include swimming, waterskiing, boating, fishing and even scuba diving - if you happen to be a pro, there is an extensive system of underwater caves just waiting to be explored! Any art enthusiasts out there? The 4,000 year old rock art, that adorns many of the rock shelters and walls is definitely a sight worth seeing. Thanks to its designation as a “recreational area”, bows and shotguns are permitted certain times of the year to hunt deer, turkey, rabbit, antelope, hog and quail. If you visit in the fall, be sure to look out for the thousands of gorgeous monarch butterflies making their 3,000-mile migrational journey from Canada to Central Mexico!
