We 3 friends visited the Mayan Dude Ranch in August. We arrived at the end of the season when the ranch was quiet and it was bliss. Hay rides or horseback riding to the cowboy breakfast every morning with so much good food including the...More

My family, including 2 teenagers, 1 preteen, elderly mother, and wife visited the Mayan for four nights and wish we could have stayed longer!
We stayed in cabins versus the lodge, which was more motel looking. The cabin was cute, had a patio, and chairs...More

A great way to finish a tour of Texas where you feel like part of the family. We checked in at 2:10 and were riding horses by 2:30 as they didn't want us to miss out and waited for us. The horse rides were relaxing...More
Imagine a cruise and a circus, oh, and a ranch all rolled into one. That's what the Mayan Ranch experience was for our 3 families (my daughter's family, our inlaws, and my wife and I). There was horseback riding (of course), cowboy 'Olympics', exotic animal...More

Hi. The nearest airport is San Antonio. The ranch does not have a shuttle, but when I inquired about it I was told they know of a 3rd party outfit that will shuttle for about $100 each way. It was cheaper to rent a car... More
Hi. The nearest airport is San Antonio. The ranch does not have a shuttle, but when I inquired about it I was told they know of a 3rd party outfit that will shuttle for about $100 each way. It was cheaper to rent a car, especially seeing as though that allowed me the freedom to drive to Boerne for shopping
My geography isn't great but I think the Grand Canyon is in another state and I hadn't heard while in Bandera of any excursions to the G.C., probably because of the distance. Mind you, if you already have a rental car, do the G.C. at the end of your stay at the ranch and drive there yourself.
BTW, it will be stinking hot in Bandera in August.
3 or 4 nights at the ranch is an optimal amount of time, IMO.

Texas is crazy hot in July and August. Having said that, there is fishing, archery, BB guns, swimming, ping pong, riding. My son is 8 and he loved it. Lots of other kids to play with. We went in October.
