Enjoy Colorado’s various surrounding peaks and wildlife in the area. 


Alamosa, CO is the closest big town only 45 minutes away with big grocery stores, general shopping, and a Hospital, as well as the small town of San Luis, CO only 13 minutes away. Utilities will need to be set up to have a permanent structure approved, but you can camp and have an approved RV before they are set up. Electricity would be through the electric company bringing in the power lines, you would need to have a septic tank installed, and a well dug out for water or water tank.


About the Area:


The San Luis Valley is the largest alpine valley in the world, has great mountain views of the Sangre De Cristos and Blanca Peak as well as the Rio Grande River runs through it. This lot would make a great building spot or weekend getaway for your family.


There is also much to do in Costilla County, Colorado including mountain climbing, hiking, fishing, hunting, and biking. There are over 54 peaks in Costilla County that have summits over 14,000 ft.

Deer, elk, and even wild mustangs(horses) wander the valley, forests, and mountains. Enjoy the Pike-San Isabel National Forest which is also nearby in Costilla County, Colorado.


The lack of light pollution in the area and high elevation allows the stars and planets to be illuminated. You might just catch a glimpse of something extraterrestrial. With the UFO Watchtower, this area has more recorded UFO sightings than anywhere else in the United States, so be sure to bring your telescope!
