Rico used to be a silver mining area, which means that it is now a town rich with history. Found in Dolores County, Rico has become a popular tourist destination in Southwest Colorado not only for its past, but also for hiking, biking and fishing opportunities. The downtown area has historic buildings to admire and some are still standing from the mining days of the 1880s. For dining, there are a few local restaurants in town and live music in the evening.
For hikers and bikers, Lizard Head Wilderness is an outdoor playground, with miles of trails through the forests to explore. For fishing, the Dolores Rivers is the perfect place to go, with Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout found here. If visitors want to learn more about the region, there is the Rico Historical Museum. For some relaxation on vacation, head to Rico Hot Springs, which is found along the Dolores River.
The best time to visit Rico is during the spring and fall months, which offer beautiful surroundings and show off the best of Colorado nature.

— I love how AllTheRooms shows a map with room price tags straight away when you search, it makes it so quick and easy to choose the right hotel, at the right price in the right location. Perfect for those with busy lifestyles! The AllTheRooms website is so user friendly. WiFi. Brilliant!
— The great thing about AllTheRooms is their ability to cover all bases. If you are travelling solo, with a partner, friends or even a larger family. There is something there for everyone and that is a hugely powerful tool that I believe it boasts moreso than competitors.
— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
