My husband and I traveled here with two of our friends for a 5 night stay at Zapata. Our entire experience was top notch from start to finish, with every detail thought through and every need met. To say it was incredible would be an understatement. Booking our stay was smooth and simple. Jessie was incredibly helpful and attentive when...

I visited Zapata Ranch in March 2016 after years of wanting to book a vacation there. To say it is a magical place is an understatement. The lodge and rooms are beautifully designed, with a simplistic, chic rustic style that makes you feel cozy and at home. The food is to die for, sophisticated ranch-style meals. I was so happy...

My daughter and I were at Zapata Ranch for her Spring break; she loves horses and riding and had wanted to do something like this for a long time, I had been on horses a couple of times for trail rides and was pretty intimidated by the prospect of a week here. But from the moment we arrived, we were...

We were in the area to visit Great Sand Dunes National Park, and happened to check on the ranch on the recommendation of our brother who stayed there years and years ago when it was a luxury golf course destination. No trace of the course remains. Instead, bison forage in the fields, and the enterprise is given over to low...

I really wish that Trip Advisor had this listed under Things to Do in addition to Places to Stay. Well-beyond being too late, I discovered this place with a brochure picked up at a place we ate dinner. Checking their website, it said they offered 4 wheel drive bison tours for $50 per person with a minimum of 4 people...

I went to Zapata in September for 4 nights on a road trip from Wisconsin that includes a two week rafting trip in the Grand Canyon. As I sit here in my hotel before my raft trip I am still overwhelmed by the experience I had at Zapata. I have traveled the the world and must admit this was my...

The staff at Zapata was wonderful, experienced, professional and personal. All of the wranglers are true horse lovers and made sure that our mixed experience group was set up with the perfect horses. My husband had been riding since childhood, I have ridden occasionally on vacations and our 8 year old son had only been lead on horseback before. The...

Stayed for 3 days in June. We are not an equine family so no experience on horses. Great staff. Experience is custom to your family. Incomparable vistas. On a scale of 1 to 5, this is a 5. You will not be disappointed.

A magical trip from start to finish. I came here solo. I researched many Ranch vacations and this one kept coming up. I booked this in January for a June stay.
