This is paradise enough for me ...
Col. John M. Francisco, upon first seeing the Cucharas
Welcome to Southern Colorado's Cuchara Valley, a delightful undiscovered destination. Spend a day, a week, a summer, we know you will return again and again.
Amidst nature's great beauty you will find a refreshing small town quality of life combined with the sophistication of art galleries, museum, theater, dining, a fitness center, musical entertainment and shopping.
For recreation there is hiking and fishing in our high mountain lakes and National Forest. Mountain biking, camping, and horseback riding. Just one hour's drive from La Veta is the spectacular Great Sand Dunes National Park.
So grab your mouse and come take a look at a little piece of paradise... You'll be glad you did.
