The bridge to Acuna is nearly 3 miles from Del Rio, but all day parking is available at reasonable rates on the U.S. side.
CIUDAD ACUNA has a population of nearly 120,000 but is surprisingly clean and tranquil compared to other border towns.
The Dam at Lake Amistad is a good photo opportunity for the magnificent twin eagle statues (fraternal not identical).
The big attraction of course is
Lake Amistad. With 1000 miles of shoreline
and 65,000 acres, this is one lake in Texas (and
Mexico) that is not over-fished. Besides
Lake Amistad offers swimming, boating and
even scuba diving.
Managed by the National Park Service, the headquarters is on Hwy 90 just west of the city limits. The U.S. side has 3 marinas with one reserved for Air Force personnel. The Mexican side has a marina and a Mexican fishing license is required if you fish that side, but it is sold at the U.S. marinas as well.
