This town with a population of 2,000, sits on a Chihuahuan Desert plateau in far West Texas. A seamless addition to the terrain since 2009, El Cosmico spreads out over 21 acres. Like an assemblage art piece itself, the hotel comprises a collection of safari tents, vintage trailers, yurts, Sioux-style teepees and do-it-yourself campsites. With kids in motion, musicians idly strumming guitars, dogs chasing balls, parents sipping beer, and hammocks hung from trees, Cosmico reminds you to be present and pursue the simplest pleasures. Wood-fired hot tubs, an outdoor kitchen, and a performance stage (where you’re likely to find someone famous practicing) just add to the allure.
