Cascabel is located along the banks of the beautiful San Pedro River about an hour and a half drive from Tucson. Take I-10 through Benson to exit 306. Head north through Pomerene. Follow the signs for 20 more miles on a scenic country road. The last five miles are unpaved, so take it easy and enjoy the scenery.
