Presidio is a place of history and natural beauty. Archaeologists have found traces of dinosaurs roaming the region more than 100 million years ago and thriving human settlements more than 1,500 years before Christ. The Spanish explorer Cabeza de Vaca arrived in this area in 1535. The late 19th century featured occasional Comanche raids and the threat of Mexican bandits.
Marvels abound, from the ghostly Chinati Mountains to the panoramic vistas of Big Bend Ranch State Park. Many visitors enjoy exploring the outdoors by car, motorcycle or river raft.
The town, itself, boasts comfortable hotels, delightful restaurants and outstanding shopping both in town and across the bridge in Ojinga, Mexico.
