Rio Rico, Arizona
Rio Rico is a town in Santa Cruz County, Arizona. Probably, the best thing to do is birdwatching tours since many bird species are nestling in the wider area. Also, it is worth visiting the nearby Coronado National Forest that covers a vast area of more than 1.78 million acres. About 40 miles east of Rio Rico you will find the Sierra Vista Ranger District where three mountain ranges dominate the landscape; the Whetstone, Huachuca, and Patagonia Mountains. The whole area has stunning natural landscapes ideal for hiking and bird watching. For those looking for quality the area, American EX Quality Inn Nogales (9.5 miles SE of Rio Rico) seems like a very convenient option. It is close to the Sierra Vista Ranger District and the Mexican borders, it has very comfy rooms, and the breakfast served is great!
