About Cortez

Cortez in southwestern Colorado is a magical place with rich archaeological sites and stunning red cliffs. While visiting this popular vacation destination, it’s hard not to imagine stepping into another time and place.

Cortez is located between the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument and Mesa Verde National Park, where you’ll find some of the best preserved Ancestral Puebloan archaeological sites in the U.S. Cortez is also a short drive to Arches National Park, Monument Valley, and Four Corners, where you can stand in four states at one time.

The Dolores River flows through unspoiled, majestic desert scenery in the heart of southwestern Colorado. With easy access from Cortez, the Dolores River takes you through canyons packed with enormous ponderosa pine trees and high sandstone cliffs in brilliant shades of orange and red.

Run the Dolores River as early as April with KODI Rafting’s three-day rafting trip and create memories you’ll never forget!
