Cocoraque Ranch Cattle Drives

Search Tucson Arizona

The Cocoraque Ranch is owned and operated by Jesus Arvizu, a native of Tucson, Arizona and third-generation cattle rancher. The ranch is located just west of Tucson past the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.

The Cocoraque is a working cattle ranch. As one of the last working ranches in the area, it provides a truly historic link to one of Tucsons oldest professions. In 1996, Mr. Arvizu opened up the Cocoraque (a word meaning, "house by the butte") to guests who want to experience a day in the life of a real Arizona cowboy.

The two-bedroom ranch house at the base of the Roskruge Mountains is the original ranch home built in the late 19th century, and is the setting for ranch cookouts. Veteran wranglers and skilled ranch hands are guides, and teachers in learning about the ranch and the surrounding area.
