Our experience at Baja Rancho La Bellota was more than what we expected. We were greeted with gracious hospitality. Immediately we felt as we hadlanded back in the "days of old in the 20's", with real cowboys and horses. The adventures on horseback were exciting and it gave you a sense of living life on a working ranch. The owner... More

This weekend we decided to bring our wives and go wine tasting and horseback riding. My wife hasn't rode a horse in years but the horses at the ranch are so good she felt safe and... More

Baja Rancho La Bellota is a 2800 acre horse ranch, art retreat, and so much more, about 1 hour south of Tecate on the inland edge of the Guadalupe Valle. When you go there you are "off the grid"- no cell phones, tv- just the sounds of nature and wonderful care and warmth of Raul and Caroline Aguiar and their... More

A really unique experience to be off the grid in such a remote and quiet setting. We were taken care of so warmly and didn't have worry about any of the details. I appreciated being welcomed into Caroline and Raul's home in the mountains for great riding opportunities, wonderful food, and fabulous scenic views.

I've been to La Bellota four times now, and every time has been a joyous and restorative adventure. Perhaps it's those windswept views from the hilltops of the Mexican chaparral, the gentle rock and clean scents of horse and saddle as you wind your way down through the canyon toward an oaken glen. Perhaps it's the starry night sky over... More

“All the cabins are clean and well kept. Keep in mind there is no electricity on the property - which is one of its top selling points!”

“All hte rooms are "bunk house" style and quality--rustic. BUT, we are told that Raul and Caroline will soon me adding a full-size bed to each room rather than at present with two-bunk beds per room (twin-size). The beds worked fine for us as is--since we were four guys, but if returning with spouses we'd appreciate full-size beds in addition to bunk beds--which are great for storage.”
