“Looking for a paradise? Go to Rancho Pitaya!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2011

Rancho Pitaya is THE destination for a perfect holiday: breath-taking scenery, delicious cuisine, clean and spacious rooms, what more can you want. Besides, Mary Jane and Bobby are great hosts and do everything to make you feel welcome and happy. The horses are well cared for and loved. They are very reliable and a joy to ride, no matter your level of proficiency. And if you are not riding or cuddling the three cute dogs or the mini ponies, you can take a bike to further explore the countryside, go to El Tule with its arts and crafts market and giant tree or just hang out in a hammock with a book and a freshly made lemonade (or a margarita :-) ). Absolutely recommendable!

Three things I truly love: 1. Mexico 2. Food 3. Adventure.

Well at Rancho Pitaya, Mary Jane and Bobby combine all three - and more! I have never felt so happy, relaxed, excited and content in my life. It was an absolute DREAM.

These are the best horses I have ridden and it was the most spectacular ride of my life (see pics). You can tell these gorgeous horses are happy and loved. After our ride, Mary Jane had a wonderful lady come out to the ranch and massage us, the best massage I have ever had.

Did I mention food? Not only did we eat the greatest food here but we learned how to cook it - with recipes to take home to cook for friends and family!

You can also borrow their bikes go on a ride to El Tule - a traditional village where you can visit the famous 2,000 year old tree, do some great shopping, enjoy the fabulous food and soak up the local customs.

At around 7pm the Margaritas are mixed and you sit on the porch, smelling the delicious Oaxacan cuisine being cooked up and being as relaxed as possible.

It all sounds too good to be true - it isn't!

Do yourself a favor and spend some time at the Ranch, you won't regret it!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great.

We stayed at Rancho Pitaya for a week and had a wonderful stay. We rode horses while we were there, which was a great experience. But there are also many other things to do, and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. The accomodations were new, roomy, clean, and comfortable, and had very nice personal touches. The food was too good--healthy but extremely tasty and well-prepared; they served many local dishes and foods of the area. The hosts and staff made you feel welcome and at home. I would recommend Rancho Pitaya to anyone looking for a vacation outside of the city.
