Port-Isabel is located in Cameron County in the southeast tip of Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 5,006 residents. The town dates to 1519, when it was charted by Spanish explorer, Alonzo de Pineda. It's one of the oldest cities in southern Texas, and has an interesting history as an important cotton export port before the Civil War. During the war, the town, harbor and lighthouse were all fought over and exchanged ownership. There are also mysterious tales of pirate treasures buried in the area and on South Padre Island. Port Isabel is home to three world class museums; the Port Isabel Historic Museum, the Treasures of the Gulf Museum, and the 1852 Port Isabel Lighthouse. The Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage, on the grounds of the Port Isabel Lighthouse, highlights the maritime history of the area. Port Isabel hosts the Annual Taste of the Laguna Madre, which celebrates the Texas coastal culinary traditions. There's many other things to do, including fishing from the pier, or off-shore charter boat fishing, hiking, birding, golf, picnicking, kayaking, sailing, jet skiing and camping. The lighthouse is open to the public and you can climb to the top for fantastic views of the port and Gulf. Port Isabel is home to many places where you can shop to your heart's content, and local restaurants feature mouthwatering seafood. Or, you can buy seafood fresh from one of the local markets and fix for yourself. With south Texas' mild winter climate, you can enjoy Port Isabel, anytime of the year, so bring the family and enjoy.

Port Isabel Weather & Climate

The southern tip of Texas has a semi-arid climate. This region is the southernmost tip of the American Great Plains Region. Subtropical forests line the Rio Grande River, and ranches dominate the landscape inland. Summers are generally hot and dry but at times can be humid if winds come off the warmer Gulf of Mexico. Rain is more abundant in the coastal regions than inland. Occasionally in winter a strong front can come through, bringing light snow at sea level. The winters in the inland region are cold and dry as Arctic sweeps downward. Snow is a rare occurrence due to the lack of humidity in winter. Tornadoes can occur in this region, but less frequent than in other parts of the state.
