The Marfa, Texas retreat is simply trailers, yurts and tents, offering an uncomplicated and stunning vacation to those who dare to drive far out into the desert. If you’re up for adventure pass through Phoenix, Las Cruces and El Paso on your drive and when you feel like you’re not going anywhere anymore (west Texas highway, defined) arrive in the dusty Texas town of Marfa.

El Cosmico is set on 18 acres and opened last fall.
