I had only a few criteria in mind for a last minute holiday: Good riding on well cared for horses in a remote region. Not a lot of other guests. Silence. Oh, and lots of stars at night. Rancho Los Banos delivered all of this and more. The trip in/out couldn't have been easier (note the drive from Tucson to...

I traveled to Rancho los Banos with a friend in January 2017, and had an absolutely amazing trip. We are experienced riders, and wanted to do a bucket-list trail riding trip together. Rancho los Banos gave us exactly the experience we were looking for. It is a rural ranch (if you're looking for luxury and fine amenities, keep looking), and...

Rancho Los Banos was the perfect getaway for two lifelong friends looking for an escape from work and stress. Everything, from the company to the rides and daily adventures, was amazing. If you are a rider, then this is the place for you. The terrain and long rides were rewarding and challenging. Plus, as a soon-to-be veterinarian and animal lover,...

Rancho Los Banos is an amazing place! The scenery was magnificent and the view from horseback made it even more spectacular. We love horse adventures and Rancho Los Banos gets high marks for healthy, sure-footed, well-trained, and trustworthy horses. The horses carried us high in the mountains over steep, rocky trails without missing a step. Our guide, Fransua, provided a...

Our family had the wonderful experience of staying at Rancho Los Baños right before Christmas 2016. Our expectations were not only met, but far exceeded in every aspect. Not only were our hosts, Manuel and his family, attentive to all our needs, the entire staff at this magnificent Ranch had us charmed from the beginning to the end. After an...

We traveled here with our two kids, aged 10 and 13, in winter 2016-17, and stayed five full days. Like others have said, this is a remarkable location - very remote, very beautiful, and very special. No internet or phone connectivity, rationed electricity, and spartan accommodations. But, good food, plenty of friendly hosting, lots of things to talk about, and...

Jim and his family were terrific guests, and we had a lovely time with them. We thank Jim for his warm embrace and review of the Rancho, the vast majority of which we feel fair and balanced and quite representative of his visit. We sympathized with the family for their case of bad luck related to the weather, with two...

My husband and I are cattle people from Australia and wanted to see some form of ranching/farming without being feeling obligated to purchase anything (such as genetics) - Tierra Chamahua EcoAdventures was exactly what we were after. What we saw and was able to participate in was 100% authentic with the luxury of our own cabin to boot. The food...

Rancho Los Banos is an absolute must... I went for a week by myself at the end of October and it was an awesome experience... Everyone there went above and beyond to see that I had a good time, extremely friendly, food was delicious and the rooms were very comfortable and modern.

I traveled to this off-grid ranch for five days the first week of November and was well taken care of from my pick-up in Tucson to my return to Douglas. The Valenzuelas are wonderful people who truly love their ranch, and it shows - from the pristine environment, to the many rescue animals, friends staff and organic food. This authentic...
