Situated midway between Alamosa and the New Mexico State line, we have a vast backyard that hosts everything from fishing, hunting, camping and other outdoor activities. Our surrounding rivers (Conejos and Rio Grande) make La Jara an excellent place to reside if you enjoy the great outdoors. We are located approximately 30 miles from the Great Sand Dunes National Park.
