About this activity

Howdy partners - looks like we're in Texas so get ready to have big Texas sized fun!

The Mayan Dude Ranch is an beautiful 348 acres ranch which spreads from the lowlands of the crisp Medina River, to the hills into the valleys beyond - a true nature inspired adventure!

Get your family to  be part of their Western traditions - they have even produced SEVEN world champion rodeo cowboys - pretty impressive! 

Only 47 miles from San Antonio, high in the beautiful Hill Country you will find a fantastic western world of warmth and, as they like to say, "Horsepitatlity" - clever!

Want to hear a typical day if you stay at this dude ranch? Well, get ready! When you wake up you will be woken to fresh juices, before you mosey on down to have your first trail ride (or hay ride!) to your scrumptious Cowboy Breakfast cook-out. The bigger the better! From eggs, has browns, to sausages, you won't go hungry! You can continue your morning ride into the hills, or just relax.

All guests get two trail rides a day, and it's a great way to see the countryside! If you have questions, just ask the cowboys - they are the real deal!

After lunch filled with Country-Western music, there is more horse riding, or swimming, or contests! Every evening the Mayan Dude Ranch has it's own style of fun just for you, as well as AMAZING BBQ food! In the evenings over summer there are also fun activities that are put on, from "Texas Night" to Cowboy and Hawaiian infused fun! 

 Get those lassoes ready y’all - it’s the Mayan Dude Ranch!

The Mayan Dude Ranch FAQ’s

These cowboys are the genuine deal, and they take pride in what they do. They really want to show families and kids their way of life, and why it's so important. A great tradition to be passed down!

What ISNT there to eat! From big cowboy breakfasts, to lunches and cookouts in the evening, you certainly won't go hungry! There are continental and domestic cuisines in the evening, and each night over summer there might be a different theme.

Make sure you take advantage of all the activities, including swimming, fishing, basketball, ping pong and volleyball. There is even a golf course just minutes away!

If you have dietary requirements, just have a chat to the very friendly staff - always happy to help!

If you have any mobility disabilities, just give them a call before you arrive so they give you advice and do what they can to help you.

Unfortunately the horses are unable to take anyone on the saddle who is more than 240lbs.
