Mayan Dude Ranch, Bandera, Texas is the “Home of Horsepitality.”
You will love the Mayan (locally pronounced MAY-ann) because it embraces the essence of dude ranching:
treating guests like family and serving up zany activities all day and into the evening.
About the Ranch
The Mayan Ranch is nestled in a picturesque valley amid cedar-clad hills six blocks from downtown Bandera. The cypress-lined Medina River, where guests can swim, tube, and fish, draws a lazy horseshoe loop around the 348-acre spread, crisscrossed by riding trails. White-tailed deer and showy peacocks wander among the rustic cabins, originally built on this site in the 1930s for a Girl Scouts camp. Now, a swimming pool, party pavilion, basketball and tennis courts, corrals, Western village (Hicksville / Western Village), and a welcoming lodge with dining hall round out the amenities.
We have plenty of fun for the whole family.

And the Food?
It’s plentiful and based on the down-home-comfort recipes Judy Hicks has compiled over a half-century of feeding guests and hungry cowboys.
