2024 Summer Activity Schedule
May 26th to August 11th

Because so many of our guests choose to stay an entire week during our summer months, we must have a weekly schedule (subject to change). During the months that our summer activity is not in effect, which is BEFORE May 26th and AFTER August 11th, 2024, we still have Cowboy Breakfast cooked on the open range, horseback riding, hayrides, roping, fishing, hiking, fossil finding, birdwatching, basketball, volleyball, BBQ cookouts, Mexican fiestas, treks to the dinosaur tracks with Jurassic Judy, country dancing, ping-pong, tennis, cowboy games, swimming in our Texas-sized pool (not heated) and marshmallow roasts.

Sunday: Mayan Branded Magnificence Where a Western Welcome Awaits You! Tonight, we promise that you will feel "at home on the range." Your vacation starts in the good old western way with the Ryanstone Cowboy's Horse-sense, a photo op on a longhorn steer, and a wagon ride around the ranch. Beef fajitas, pulled pork, and catfish will be your main entrees. Following supper will be Kowgirl Kel's legendary Cowboy Bingo.

Monday: Waltz Across Texas with the Mayan in Mind - Part 2
Tonight, we lift the latch to some engaging, inspiring, historical, and significant Mayan stories, and make you part of the Mayan family tradition that join hands with folks from all over the world. We begin the evening by lassoing you in with World-Champion Trick Roper Kevin Fitzpatrick. Texas food stretches the menu this evening with chicken-fried steak and smoked turkey as your main entrees. Following supper, adults & teens will be treated to Waltz Across Texas Part 2 while children 12 & under enjoy "It's Foam Time" (Bubbles Galore). No exceptions for 12 yrs. & under inside the dining room for the after-dinner entertainment.

Tuesday: Tonight, you will feel like you are not "fenced-in." There is something for everyone tonight with our Western Variety Night. All the festivities and your meal will take place at Hicksville, where you can take in the picturesque mountain setting, tree-covered slopes, the ranch's wildlife and the horse's nighttime habitat. Sisters, Shea & Shannon, will make sure that you have a rootin', tootin', hootin' good time by delighting your palates with some ranch food favorites and activities.

Wednesday: The Mayan's Got Talent! Besides incredible food and western horsepitality, the Mayan staff and her guests are incredibly talented. Cowboy Olympics for all ages will take place before supper. BBQ chicken and tender pork medallions will be your delicious, western main entrees. The highly requested Guest Talent Show will close the evening inside our dining room. (Bring your own props) What an exciting night of fun and happiness!

Thursday: Ole on down to the pool pavilion for our Magnífica Fiesta Mexicana al Estilo Maya. Zestful festivities, food, and fun come out of our sombreros tonight. We are world-famous for our enchiladas. Throw in some fajitas, sangria, a children's pinata, and Mariachi music provided by Senor Ricochet the D-Jay, and you will experience a successful blending of Tex-Mex culture and cuisine. Following supper, a hayride to see the wildlife and an hour of Mayan Card Games for adults and teens (No exceptions for 12 yrs. & under at the Mayan Casino).

Friday: The Mayan's Trademark Night. An outstanding feature of the Mayan is her trademark food - BBQ. Take the Mayan's word for it - cooks really put the big pot in the little kettle tonight with BBQ brisket, ribs, and sausage cooked and queued to perfection. Out of the pages of the old west cookbooks come the cowboy beans, potato salad, coleslaw, homemade bread, and all the cowboy trimmings. Enjoy the food, music, and unspoiled hills at Hicksville; then in true ranch-style, siblings Kowgirl Kel and Ricochet the D-Jay will cap the evening by teaching you the dance steps of Texas.

Saturday: The Mayan's Tops of the Pops - Wonderful days have wonderful endings. To close your stay with us, we celebrate our #1 meal (steaks) poolside with our #1 guests (you), and then close the evening with the Mayan Family's floorshow. Don't be surprised if you find yourself part of the fun. Our floorshow not only showcases the Mayan family but also our incredibly talented Mayan guests whom are "Tops" in our hit parade. Eating, laughing, chatting, singing, and dancing with all the Mayan folks will make one realize why we have successfully been in the family business for 73 years.

Sunday: A Texas-sized last Round-Up brunch will be served from 7:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. inside the dining room featuring a variety of breads, fruit, eggs, bacon, sausage, and plenty of Mayan Ranch specialties that only our cooks can prepare. Official checkout is 11:00 a.m.
