I just came back from spending a week at the Mayan Ranch. It is a family owned and run operation. The Hicks family go completely out of their way to provide each and every person with a top notch experience. My wife and I took our two granddaughters who were continuously entertained with activities about the ranch; including a large,... More

I have been here 4 or 5 times over the years and it always feels like coming home. Yes, the food is incredible…no sandwiches for lunch, incredible breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Timmy does a FANTASTIC job with the "Cowboy Breakfast" he slaves over the fire starting at dawn so we can just ride in and eat a perfect breakfast. The... More

At almost the last minute, we decided to book a spring break at the Mayan Ranch. Timing is everything and we secured the last room due to a cancellation a few minutes prior. You will be well fed and entertained…but the beauty of this ranch comes from the intangibles. In the lobby, you can read the rewards, look at the... More

Just home from our 6th visit to this fantastically friendly place. The Hicks family run ranch is about as friendly as you will find anywhere in the world.From start to finish all your holiday will be fun filled, well fed, busy or relaxing as you make it. The horses are great for absolute beginners as well as more experienced riders... More

I have been going to the Mayan Ranch since the 80's. I just spent four days. Two days I was the only guest at the Ranch and then two other friends I had brought last year joined me. It continues to be a treat and a trip into the cowboy era of Texas. The food is good and plentiful. The... More

This summer, we decided to take a motor trip to New Orleans and Dallas Texas from Miami. For something different, we spent three days at a "Dude Ranch" in Bandera, Texas. Rustic but clean and well appointed, the Mayan Ranch is fun and exciting or laid back by a great pool, you choose. The ranch is superbly run by the... More

after a long battle my father finally passed 5 years ago...my mom insisted that my entire family ,17 in all ,spend a week at the Mayan...The Hicks ands family did what they do best, without knowing the real effect they have on others lives. They show you the best time, service, food and entertainment. You will catch the Ranch FEVER!... More

We have been bringing our grandchildren to the Mayan for the past seven years ... Every year we ask if they want us to make reservations for the following year. The answer is always a resounding, "Yes.". This family run ranch is consistently great. Importantly, it is safe for the kids to be on their own. We look forward to... More

If you're looking for a cowboy-style Texas vacation, this is the place. Most of the other guests are return visitors and they keep coming back because of how the staff makes you feel at home.
