Fodor's Expert Review El Cosmico

802 S. Highland Ave., Marfa, Texas, 79843, USA

An unusual setup that suits Marfa's quirky personality, hipster-approved El Cosmico is a nomadic draw for glamping adventurers, with safari tents, tepees, campsites, a yurt, and 1950s-style trailers that provide surprising comfort. There's a full outdoor kitchen, bath house, hammocks, and wood-fired hot tub. Just wandering the spacious grounds is a trip in itself.

PROS

  • rugged-chic, laid-back environment
  • "well-behaved" dogs are welcome
  • set on 21 scenic acres with great high-desert views

CONS

  • not well-suited to families
  • when the temperature dips below freezing, which is often in winter, the pipes in the outdoor bath houses can freeze
