We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Rancho de la Capilla. Starting with the stone entrance gate, the construction is amazing. It was established in the 17th century. The grounds and landscaping are beautiful, particularly the cactus. The chapel itself is amazing with ancient artwork on the ceiling.

Rancho de la Capilla was a highpoint in our 2 week stay in Guanajuato/San Miguel de Allende! The horseback riding delighted my 11 year old son, and Steve and Martin geared the ride to our needs. We rode past farms, through rivers and by the reservoir, getting a taste of the varied landscape. The rancho itself was fascinating! A 500... More

Want to experience the 'old frontier' Mexico? Visit Rancho de La Capilla outside San Miguel De Allende for a ride through the countryside on horseback that's geared to all levels of riders (my 3 friends were in no way horsepeople and hadn't done this before-and haven't stopped talking about it). The countryside is rugged and stunning, and Steve the owner... More
