Best Western Zapata Texas Hotels
The town of Zapata, the seat of Zapata County, also has the largest population in the county. The Spanish Mexican heritage of the region is quite apparent and very influential in every aspect of life, for it covers a period of over three hundred years of exploration and settlement. The people are justly proud of their rich historical and social heritage. Zapata is also the home of Falcon Lake, considered the second largest fresh water lake in Texas with 87,300 acres along the Rio Grande River. The lake has been named the number one bass fishing spot in Texas.
Fishing is popular year round for Black Bass, White Bass, Stripers, Crappie, as well as monster-size Catfish. The shores of Falcon Lake are also perfect for bird watching. Almost any prized birds on any birder's list can be seen here. The white-collared seedeater is a rare prize. Also found are the Green Jay, Kiskadee Flycatcher, and the fall migration of Hummingbirds.
