Mosca and Hooper
These two small, rural towns on State Highway 17 serve as the gateway to Zapata and the Great Sand Dunes for travelers coming from points north. Mosca is home to the Colorado Gator Park (you read that right!) and the Mosca Pit Stop, a convenience store, gas station and popular, local watering hole. Just north of Mosca near Hooper is the famed UFO Watchtower, a collection of other-worldly memoribilia and a raised platform for prime outer space viewing. Hooper is also home to the Hooper Pool – a deceptively simple name for a divine, geothermal swimming experience.
Called the Hamlet of the San Luis Valley, Crestone is a small but active arts community on the north side of the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. Holistic living, eco-building, solar power and other modern, back-to-the-land values are popular here, as is a connected community devoted to artisan culture.
Blanca, Fort Garland and San Luis
This trio of small towns on the southeastern edge of the San Luis Valley has a rich Hispanic history visible in their architecture and community events. Blanca’s two small grocers are a popular place for Zapata residents to stop for the basics, and the community center along US Route 160 between Blanca and Fort Garland offers residents an array of fitness and educational opportunities at low cost.
San Luis, just a few miles from the New Mexico border, is seeing a resurgence in its arts and cultural community. Between these three towns there’s no shortage of hometown-style diners – both Mexican and American – to choose from.
Alamosa and Monte Vista
The business and cultural center of the San Luis Valley, Alamosa is home to just under 10,000 people, dozens of dining options, several hotels, retail stores, grocery stores, parks, galleries, the fabled Rio Grande and its namesake, the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad.
Despite being just half that size, Alamosa’s sister city, Monte Vista, is also bustling, with a charming, active downtown, a rural livestock events center and a wildlife refuge that’s home to some 25,000 migrating Sandhill Cranes each spring and fall.

It’s believed that the exact spot of Sipapu is near the San Luis Lakes, not far from Zapata.
Eighty acres of fields outside Mosca are now home to the largest solar installation of its kind in North America.
