We were there two weeks ago - the rooms and grounds are lovely. I described it to my husband as Shangrila, because you are in an enclosed area with beautiful plantings all around. Breakfasts are delicious and there is a good library for birders to peruse. All in all, this is a great spot to bird in southern Texas.

- Just 20 miles from South Padre Island and 12 miles north of Mexico, outside of Los Fresnos, Texas, is one of the best kept secret travel destinations in the state. The Inn at Chachalaca Bend presents 40 acres of unspoiled country paradise with beautiful wildlife, natural lake frontage and luxury accommodations that are popular with year round birdwatchers, fishermen or those who seek only to pamper themselves with the ultimate escape and relaxation. Close to the finest beaches on the Texas Gulf Coast, yet far from the crowds. ... more less
