My husband and I took our 3 kids (ages 7, 8 12) to the rancho for spring break (late March/early April). The border crossing was easy and we felt very safe our entire trip. Manuel, Jill, Manuel Sr and their staff were lovely and gracious hosts. Our kids had never been riding before and they LOVED IT! We went on...

I spent 10 days at Rancho Los Banos at the end of april and the end of season. The adventure began in Tucson: The shuttle that was meant to pick me up and take me to Douglas, forgot all about me! But I got a phonecall to my hotel from the Rancho, telling me that my pick-up will be delayed...

Thank you very much, Riita. You were a terrific guest. After our third party shuttle forgot about you, we immediately went to work trying our best to get you to the ranch. Working the phones, contacting friends, mobilizing ourselves and thinking outside the box, we were able to get you down. It worked like magic! And we are very glad...

My partner and I visited Rancho Los Baños for 4 days/3 nights in mid March. I've been waiting to write my review for until now because I wanted to make sure I saved enough time to do justice to this amazing getaway in writing!

Hola Nicole! Thank you very much for a great and kind-worded review. You guys were terrific guests. Thank you for your initial trust in the face of negative and ignorant commentary. We take great pride exposing guests to an open, tolerant and progressive Mexico that oftentimes does not get publicity. We also love when guests see the real Mexico, and...

SUMMARY For those who don't have the time to read my entire review, I will sum it up by saying we had a great time at Rancho Los Banos and hope to return for a longer stay. It is a unique facility and experience, so it is important to understand what the ranch is and what it isn't. So if...

Everything about this trip was amazing! The people were fun, helpful and friendly, the views were incredible, the horses were well behaved, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and going "off the grid" was so relaxing. My husband and I have never done a vacation like this before, we were a little concerned about traveling to Mexico and we hadn't...

Thank you for taking a chance on a different vacation, in Mexico, at the foot of the Sierra Madres, and visiting us so far away and removed from your home.

Our visit to Rancho Los Banos was really GREAT! Myself and two other “outdoor adventurist” girlfriends stayed recently for 6 nights. We were looking for a place to relax, ride horses, hike and spend a lot of time outdoors. We’re hikers and backpackers, so “luxury” isn’t really our style or our price range. The ranch is an authentic working ranch...

My 16-yr old daughter and I shared an amazing experience at Ranchos Los Banos during the first week of March. We are both advanced riders and have ridden in many different environments, but the extraordinary riding at the Ranch was unlike anything we had ever experienced! As others have mentioned, the pictures simply don't do justice to the exquisite scenery!...

Wow this place was even more wonderful than I hoped it would be. The landscape is exquisite, the people fun and friendly. They basically allowed us to step into their world for a few days and it was truly magical. We were here on days that were unseasonable cold and wet (we were told it was about as cold as...

I spent a week in mid-January at the ranch and rode from 5-6 hours a day. It was a truly great experience. Don Manuel put me at ease from the moment we met at the border until the day I left. The horses are amazing - strong, steady and never once wavered as we went up and down the hills...
