In a small town called Bandera, away from the chaos of the city there is a little corner of paradise called Mayan dude ranch.
Peace around this magnificent place is perfect, especially if you need a rest. My wife and I spent our Xmas holiday there and here's our experience:
After a long and tiring trip we arrived late in the evening at the ranch, immediately, reassured by a warm welcome;
after checking in we went to the cabin, it was amazingly cozy, warm, spacious and comfortable 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, and a room with a Tv.
For a start every morning (If you wish) you can take coffee and juice in your cabin (the real cowboys or cowgirls take that) we did that, and then we went to the big dining room where we found a buffet filled with all delights, bacon, eggs, beans, cakes.
During our holidays we did a lot of activity specially horseback riding. it was fabulous because the environment of each riding was different, specially along the Medina river.
The weather was always sunny and the temperature was around 60 degrees. After the riding we did many activities, like shooting, lasso, and feed deer, all organized in every little detail. There is a pool but it was to cool to swim it's good for summer, in the afternoon after another riding we walked along the property.
At 19.00 in the office was a great dinner every evening different (fajitas, tacos big BBQ steaks
At the Mayan we spent December, 24, our wedding anniversary and it was amazing because we felt part of the family, they prepared for us a cheesecake in the shape of a heart for the occasion.
Every night Kelly organized funny games with nice prizes, and little Judy rocked us with her enjoyable lessons of line dance.
During those ten days we felt at home, and we saw how this family cares about all the guests with dedication and love.
We are really happy of having been part of this, a special thanks goes to Kelly, Cole, Little Judy, Patrick, Maverick, Ryan and,of course, Greg.
We come back as soon as possible
