We've visited the Mayan at every season of the year and it never disappoints. The food, the fun, and the family atmosphere all combine to make it a relaxing and memorable trip. The T-Bone steaks are huge and seasoned perfectly. The BBQ is moist and smoky! We love to ride out to Cowboy breakfast on horseback and dismount for some... More

Everyone was so friendly which made the whole experience that more enjoyable. We had fun with swimming, horse-rides, river rope jumping, etc etc. The food was excellent as well... More

Thank you for your positive feedback about your recent stay at the ranch. As we close our summer season, we would like to invite our guests back to enjoy fall at the Mayan.

We have just returned to a cold and wet UK from the beautiful Mayan ranch. We were a group of five, age from 82 to 16 including one teen with special educational needs. There was something for everyone and even Grandma rode the hay ride down to breakfast. We loved the horse riding, the food, the entertainment (especially the egg... More

We love staying at the Mayan Ranch. After visiting twice I decided to try another Bandera-area ranch. It was such a let-down compared to the Mayan that we checked out after the first night and went to the Mayan. The food is great. There are tons of activities for adults & kids. And there are so many families that it... More

Witnessed a horse riding accident where horses were spooked by barking dogs along the trail on Mayan property, during one of the daily horse ride. These spooked horses galloped off and threw a few riders off, at least 2 riders were sent by ambulance to Emergency Room due to back and leg injuries. Some horses were already showing restless behaviors... More

My mother has been going to the Mayan Dude Ranch sine 1951, and she started taking me there in 1967. My brother and I could have gone anywhere in the world on vacations with our parents, but we always chose the Mayan! Since that time, I have taken my husband and son.
