My 12 yr old daughter and I were visiting Ajijic and friends told us about Hacienda de Taos. What a fabulous place! We enjoyed the lovely drive around Lake Chapala--seeing all the berry farms and villages along the way. This ranch is a real Mexican experience. Celina picked out perfect horses for us...we are experienced English riders...so we needed a review on Western style. The horses were extremely well trained and behaved, and had the nimbleness and trail experience to make us feel totally comfortable on the ride. Our group of 5 walked, trotted and cantered over parts of the rocky terrain, and took time to visit the ranch's lake and survey the scenery and the cacti. The ranch lunch on the Hacienda porch afterward was just what we needed and provided another reason to look at the amazing views. We'll be back to stay in the cabins next time! Many thanks Celina and Jose!
