What surprises are in store?

Fishing - Fishermen enjoy wade fishing, drift fishing, fly fishing, and bait casting for the one that doesn't get away. Coastal and pier catches can include redfish, speckled and sand trout, flounder, sheepshead, croaker, skipjack, and drum. Bay fishing guides are locally available.

Birding - According to the latest checklists, 510 species and four sub-species of birds can be found in just the four counties of the Lower Rio Grande Valley. This is more than any other region in the country! Rare species include the Green Jay, Hook-Billed Kite, White-Collared Seed Eater, Great Kiskadee, Tamaulipas Crow, Brown Jay, Couch's Kingbird and Ringed Kingfisher. Coastal Great Blue and Little Blue Herons, cranes, white and brown pelicans and Roseate Spoonbills abound.

Butterfly Sightings - The NABA International Butterfly Park and the WBC can offer a Valley-wide checklist of butterfly species throughout the season.

Hunting - The first two weeks of September are a White Wing hunters' paradise. This is the only region in the United States where white wing dove may be taken. Larger game such as white-tailed deer, wild turkey, javelina, nelgui, and quail may also be taken at hunting leases in the area. Two lotteries, one for rifle and one for bow, are held each winter in order to hunt on the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge.

Visit Mexico - Valley towns are all unique but our local border towns are an hour away and offer a taste of life south of the border. Great restaurants and shopping adventures await the adventurous traveler.
