Used them in early April for a 4 day trip through Mariscal Canyon on the Rio Grande. Our Guide Zach was very experenced, personable and knowledgable. Really surprised they are not already on the Trip Advisor site. Hope to get them added so I can write a review. « less

For over 14 years Desert Sports has provided outstanding service to our students on our annual guided river trips to Big Bend National Park. They put safety first, have a low impact and conservation ethic, and really work hard to help people discover the borderlands country.

We rented 3 mountain bikes for one day. They were excellent quality (Specialized and Kona) and came with helmets, water bottles, and supplies for a flat. Great service and recommendations for nearby trails. We road the #3 trail at Lajitas Airport and East Contraband Trail at Big Bend State Park. Friendly staff and a building with "character". HIghly recommend!

Our trip to Big Bend was made even better with a float down the Rio Grande. The guide was excellent and very knowledgable. The company provides a water bottle to take home with you, ponchos if needed, lock boxes for cameras and a dry bad for extra clothing. They also provide a nice lunch on the river. This company did...
