Hi. The nearest airport is San Antonio. The ranch does not have a shuttle, but when I inquired about it I was told they know of a 3rd party outfit that will shuttle for about $100 each way. It was cheaper to rent a car... More
Hi. The nearest airport is San Antonio. The ranch does not have a shuttle, but when I inquired about it I was told they know of a 3rd party outfit that will shuttle for about $100 each way. It was cheaper to rent a car, especially seeing as though that allowed me the freedom to drive to Boerne for shopping
My geography isn't great but I think the Grand Canyon is in another state and I hadn't heard while in Bandera of any excursions to the G.C., probably because of the distance. Mind you, if you already have a rental car, do the G.C. at the end of your stay at the ranch and drive there yourself.
BTW, it will be stinking hot in Bandera in August.
3 or 4 nights at the ranch is an optimal amount of time, IMO.

Texas is crazy hot in July and August. Having said that, there is fishing, archery, BB guns, swimming, ping pong, riding. My son is 8 and he loved it. Lots of other kids to play with. We went in October.

"June and July are very hot, but manageable. Take extra clothes and a hat is a must."
