About our Company:

Located on 21-acres of desert campground, El Cosmico is a community-lodging concept where guests sleep in vintage trailers, Sioux-style tepees, and safari tents on the edge of Marfa, Texas.

Providing a temporary retreat from the modern world, El Cosmico offers unique camping accommodations intermixed with common spaces dispersed throughout the grounds, from a hammock grove to an outdoor kitchen + dining area to a community lounge + mercantile, all with limited to no WiFi. The lobby and online store, El Cosmico Provision Company, offers an array of eccentric supplies for camping and living, reflecting El Cosmico’s distinct style.
