Rio Grande, Texas: Rio Grande has one of the largest Mexican populations in America (close to 75% of its population). It’s also where you will see some of this country’s best examples of Spanish Colonial architecture from 17th century homes that have been preserved or converted into museums to modern buildings with a Spanish flair.
You can also find the beautiful, restored Santa María Cathedral and many other churches where you will hear Mass in Latin as well as English. You’ll find Mexican restaurants that offer traditional dishes like barbacoa de cabeza (beef cooked for hours over an open fire), machacado con huevo (pork cooked with eggs) or cochinita pibil (slow-roasted pork).
Tourists from around the world come here to shop at stores selling textiles and jewelry, but there’s more than just food and shopping; Rio Grande has one of Texas’ most beautiful golf courses! There are 19 holes on this course which is set amid cotton
fields, meadows and live oaks.
We hope this has been a helpful introduction to Rio Grande! Make sure you visit soon for more information about your next trip south of the border where there’s always something new around every corner.
