Follow Me to El Cosmico

El Cosmico is an 18 acre nomadic hotel and campground in Marfa, Texas. In keeping with the belief that life should be a balance of adventure and do-nothingness we offer shelter, occasional entertainment, opportunity for learning/doing/making, and access to the majesty of the high plains desert. From its wide open spaces to the vast canopy of stars above, El Cosmico provides temporary liberation from the built world. It is second home to intrepid travelers and wanderers from all corners of the planet.

Accommodations at El Cosmico include renovated vintage trailers, safari and scout tents, Sioux-style tepees, and tent campsites. The property also offers several communal spaces for guests – a hammock grove, an outdoor kitchen and dining area, a community lounge and mercantile, an outdoor stage, a reading room. We rent wood-fired hot tubs as the burn ban allows, and bikes for exploring Marfa.

Make Hay While the Sun Shines

El Cosmico also serves as a hub for occasional happenings that elevate the mind, body and creative spirit, and is a great place to get your hands dirty when the need arises. Our evolving program of workshops and retreats includes building, cooking and art classes, songwriting workshops and more. In addition to the Trans-Pecos Festival of Music + Love held annually each fall, El Cosmico hosts concerts, movies, art and cultural events throughout the year.
