The overall rating would have been lower, but my daughter enjoyed it so I compromised. To begin with, the drive from Ajijic to Los Sauces was difficult due to the road construction on the highway, as they are widening the road...and once off the main roads, we got lost several times trying to find the right dirt road that leads...

Thank you very much for your honest review and we are very sorry that you were not completely satisfied with your visit to Hacienda de Taos. We pride ourselves on offering a true western experience in the beautiful and naturally rugged Mexican countryside, however, we also have riding areas on flatter land or along quiet country roads and we hope...

Decided to drive to Hacienda de Taos on a whim before returning to the US. It was a great experience. The cabins are very cute and rustic, but not uncomfortable. The campfire dinner and breakfast were great and varied, and even had vegetarian options. The horseback rides were also excellent and more interesting than I had imagined. I had imagined... More

Last fall we had the opportunity to take our God-Daughter from England for a day out riding. It turned out to be so much more. Not only is the ranch/ride wonderful, but Celina is also. We were smiling and laughing all day long. We will be going back again soon-hopefully to stay the night in one of the adorable cabins.... More

Make sure to include Hacienda de Taos in your itinerary while in Mexico! It truly is the perfect ranch experience featuring: horseback-riding and riding lessons, as well as, camping trips and full moon rides. If you wish, cabins are available for overnight stays to extend the adventure! Celina is nothing short of amazing! It is obvious that her horses are... More

Hacienda de Taos is a great place to ride and learn about horses. It takes me back to my childhood growing up on a farm in Southern Ontario. I'm becoming a regular there. Celina is a gracious host and terrific horseperson and makes every ride special. My family likes to come also and we stay over in the cabins. They... More

Lovely to arrive to a wofking ranch with people who really care about it. We stayed overnight with our 2 kids, 6 and 4, and they really enjoyed feeding the animals, milking a... More

When I'm at Hacienda de Taos, I leave all cares and worries behind. I enjoy the landscape, the animals, and the overall camaraderie of the facility Especially the extra special attention given to me which makes me feel like more than just a guest. I especially enjoy the trail rides on the well trained horses. It's soooo difficult for me... More

We had a fantastic time at the ranch. Johann is one of the kindest people we've met, and Celena knows more about horses than anyone on the planet. I have learned more in a couple of days riding with her than I have in months of riding before. The cabanas are really lovely and if you like quiet, you won't... More

Celina and Johan have done an amazing job at transforming an amazing piece of land into a stunning retreat of everyday ranch activities. Celina may just be the best horse trainer in Mexico and her confidence with her horses erases all of your own doubts about your ability to ride simple and challenging trails. The dinner by camp fire forces... More
