Horses and More...

Folks come to The Mayan Ranch to ride our horses and that´s great, but they soon find out that there is just as much fun to be had out of the saddle as in it.

World Famous Food -- How about a huge Texas-style steak cooked over a Mesquite fire? BBQ Brisket, pork, ribs, chicken and sausage? Smoked turkey? Cornish game hen? Incredible and unique salads of every description? We've got all that plus the best Mexican food in Southwest Texas.

Hayrides -- The Mayan Dude Ranch is a big ranch and we have our meals and activities "spread all over the spread." Don't worry, a hayride will take you to the Cowboy Breakfast, The Gazebo (our riverside eating area) and to Hicksville (our own little Western Town). Sometimes the hayride will just take you out under the beautiful Texas stars for the pure fun of it. Hey, there's a bonfire, let's stop for a sing-along!

Music and Dancing -- During the summertime, and sometimes during the off season, we put on shows: musicals, comedies -- just good fun entertainment. We also have musical groups and cowboy bands to play for you during your meal. Want to dance but don't know how? Don't worry. We'll teach you the Texas Two-Step, the Cotton-Eyed Joe, and a lot of modern line dance techniques.

Other Fun Stuff -- Swimming in our Texas-sized pool. Fishing. Tennis. Basketball. Volleyball. Ping- Pong. And for you duffers there is Golf (not at the ranch itself, but we're only minutes away from a great course). Speaking of golf, we have a 3rd party that rents golf carts for guests to drive around on property. Please call or text 210-355-6451 to reserve yours for an upcoming stay.

A word about the trailrides:

Due to all insurance company requirements, children under 6 years of age are not able to participate on the trailrides. However, we know how much the little one's want to sit in the saddle, so at scheduled times, our wranglers will put them up on a horse and lead them around the corral. Cribs are unavailable.

Our guests get two rides a day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. They are all single file with a cowboy guide and last about 50 minutes. We allow no exceptions.

Texas law says we cannot put anyone in the saddle who weighs more than 240 lbs.
