Rancho Las Cascadas Mexico’s most natural, all inclusive wellness, yoga and horseback riding vacation destination. Located conveniently to both the airports of Mexico City or Queretaro, we’re easy to reach and hard to leave. Re-boot, recharge and relax in this pristine resort that’s embedded deeply in the open-sky country with distant mountains, wide open plains and natural features enriched by a river that carves the cascades, las cascadas, for which we are named.

Visited the Rancho summer of 22. Family of 4 and another family with us. Communication with Jenny in preparation for the trip was easy and she was very responsive and helpful. We arrived and felt welcome from the start and that the staff was all intent on making our vacation great. Max and his team of ranch hands were acutely attentive to our desires to ride and to properly match us with horses appropriate to each of us. With children in our group it was comforting to sense and see their alertness and abundance of caution regarding the safety of our younger riders. The rooms were wonderful, the grounds were beautiful the food and service were on point and the rides were based on what the group/s were asking for and capable of. I have no doubt that some of the other offerings of tours, massage, yoga, cooking etc would all be excellent experiences as well, but our group was all about time in saddle and Rancho las Cascadas can offer that very well. For us, this was a trip to remember for a lifetime but hopefully we can make return trips to build even more memories in the years to come. We felt very attended to and loved very much the setting, the people, the horses and the rustic beauty of the Mexican highlands. Thank you to Max, Jenny and the team assembled by these two and the owner. The ranch hands, cooks and all service and team members were absolutely wonderful and made the experience amazing. Can't wait to return. Thank you all!!!

Words cannot describe what a special place the Rancho is to my daughter and I. I also hesitate to write yet another 5 star review for purely selfish reasons…I want to keep this special slice of heaven a secret. If I could give 10 stars, I would in a heartbeat. We weep tears each time we leave, but know our next visit is already on the books. It started several years ago, when my daughter was interested in going to a horse ranch to learn how to ride. It has now come to mean so much more each time we visit. It is the most special bonding experience I have experienced with my youngest daughter. Hence, why we keep coming back year after year. Thank you Jenny, Max, house staff, and all the talented wranglers for another amazing riding experience. It’s the only place where I can truly unwind. The grounds, the amenities, the food, and especially the horses are truly magical. We are always part of a small and intimate gathering of guests from all over the world. It’s no wonder that each time we visit, we meet other repeat guests as well. We are so glad we did not go to one of the many commercially advertised ranches in the US. Hasta la vista Ranch Las Cascadas!

An all around wonderful ranch experience. The horseback riding was great. Horses were very responsive. I started out slow at the beginning of the week and then by the end of the week was on one of their fast one. The terrain was beautiful and a lot of wide open spaces to run, no nose to tail riding. The food was the best Mexican food I have ever had and every day it was different. You were even able to request food options. I ate everything, but they accommodated just about any guest dietary needs. The ranch is located in a remote area that was very peaceful. Their yoga/meditation building was the best I've ever seen. I started each day doing yoga listening to the birds and waterfall, they opened it up every morning for me and lit oil candle urns surrounding the room, so peaceful and relaxing. My girlfriend and I stayed an entire week and was so happy we did so we could experience everything they had to offer. Hikes to three different waterfalls, excursions to San Miguel, which was 2 hours away, and another excursion to an outside market that sold everything, that's where we got boots, belts, western shirts and a lot more. All excursions were guided by Max who was not only a great guide but also a personal shopper. We told him what we were looking for and he took us to the best shops, he also carried all our bags :) If you are looking for an all around great ranch experience in Mexico this is the place to go. Oh yeah, the open bar is nice. It is helpful to know some Spanish.

I truly had the best vacation at Rancho Las Cascadas! The experience is like no other ranch I have been to. Each morning for breakfast you can choose from a variety of tropical fresh fruits and authentic Mexican breakfast. We are then greeted by Max who arranges the horse rides based on levels. I rode the adorable and fun Valiente! I was captivated by each ride! The first rise we were taken in we went through a rolling bed of water and then approached a whimsical road surrounded by beautiful green grass, fresh corn and two adorable miniature donkeys who greeted us. During our ride we take a break so the wrangles can check every ones saddle. Coming from the riding world, I truly appreciate this and the safety they provide. After riding a bit we are able to get a snack within the town and the horses get a break. The people that are in the town are so kind and happy to see us. Lunch and dinner at the ranch is wonderful. Each meal is gourmet experience! If there’s a special Mexican cuisine that you would like, you can request that if they have the ingredients in stock. Max and Jenny truly are the heart of the ranch! They answered all our questions. Max took us in two excursions and we had an absolute blast! We told him what we were interested in purchasing and seeing and he know exactly where to take us. If we had a specific type of trail ride we wanted to take he helped with setting that up with the wranglers. Jenny was an absolute doll! She is so outgoing and fun! She gave explained to us all the areas of the ranch and opportunities that we are offered. The yoga room is absolutely gorgeous, in the mornings before our rides we would go stretch there. Unfortunately, I wanted to be with a Horses any moment I could so I did not partake in any type of yoga. The wranglers were amazing, and allowed you to watch them tack up and answered any questions you had. I did not wanna leave my vacation, I actually wanted to take the horse and two dogs back with me!! If you have the opportunity to come to this ranch definitely book it, you will not regret your experience!!

I cannot express what a wonderful time we had here. My husband wanted to ride horses and I was so happy just to hang around. The ladies showed me how to cook. The food was amazing and the architecture should be in a magazine. I would 100% go back. My husband loved the horseback riding as well.

I had an amazing experience at Rancho Cascadas at the end of October/ beginning of November. I only intended on staying a few days but I extended my visit, that’s how wonderful it was. Set in the Mexican highlands about an hour and a half outside of Mexico City, the property is beautifully landscaped and on very healing and expansive land — waterfalls, lakes, streams, rolling countryside, mountain ranges, and historical pueblos. And we rode through it all. The horses are beautiful, well trained, and willing to experience it all with their riders. The cowboys are gentlemen and can handle whatever comes their way. Jenny and Max go above and beyond to make guests feel like we are at home. It would take me too long to detail all the ways they made my stay special, but here is one example: on día de los muertos Jenny set up an altar and added a picture of my father who passed away. Okay, another example because I can’t help myself — Max took me and another guest shopping for leather in Villa de Carbon (recommend) and it felt like shopping with a knowledgeable local friend who enjoys the experience as much as you do. Rancho de las Cascadas provided me with peace, relaxation, adventure, and friendship. It was more than I was expecting. I can’t wait to go back.

After two and a half years of no vacations we realized we had to take a vacation or go nuts. We are horse riders and we knew we had to be very careful about where we went so we wouldn't end up in a nanny-state dude ranch where they make you ride nose to butt on slow horses. This is why we looked to other countries that give you more freedom with your horse riding. Rancho Las Cascadas nailed it on the head! The grounds are gorgeous, the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, the food was outstanding (I never missed a meal!) and the horse riding was great. The horses were well cared for and well behaved but certainly not sleepy! You can tell the staff and wranglers really care about them. Good hoof care, no saddle sores, and no sign of mistreatment. They seemed to have a good connection to the wranglers and staff. The corrals and stalls were always clean. The tack was sturdy and safe (charro style) and the wranglers were excellent riders. It helps if you speak Spanish if you go on a one on one ride with a wrangler. I got to gallop to my hearts content in open fields and grassy lands with NO worries about gopher holes. And gallop I did. My wife rides a bit slower but they paired her with a female guide that rode according to my wife's level. These horses were able to navigate obstacles I never dreamed of, but after one or two rides I had complete confidence in whatever steed I was on. I knew I would get back to my next meal safely! The waterfalls at the back of the property are gorgeous! Remember, this is not a 'remote' destination but when you pass through the front gate you feel you are a million miles from everywhere. They still plow the fields here with oxen. There are typical little cinder block pueblos here and there but you can ride all day and never go into a town if that is what you wish. The ride from the airport is not bad. Whatever level of rider you are, you will improve. I will always remember this place as one of the best vacations we have ever had.
