I arrived at Rancho Pitayo after 7 busy and intense days alone in and around Oaxaca City. I'd enjoyed the day trips to ancient sites, to crafts workshops, to natural wonders, and all the city had to offer which is considerable. Mary Jane arranged a...More

It is so good to know your "out-of-city" experience was gratifying. Oaxaca boosts some of the planet's greatest biodiversity and one of the best ways to experience this on on the back of a horse. This biodiversity largely influenced by the state's daunting geography, helps...More

I recently returned from a week of riding and relaxing at Rancho Pitaya (Horseback Mexico) and I recommend it very highly! The adobe ranch and rooms are clean, comfortable, and peaceful. The food is excellent. I found the horses to be well trained, and the...More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Rancho Pitaya and of riding with Horseback Mexico. Exploring Oaxaca whether from the saddle or otherwise cannot be done in one lifetime. And horses? That's another area of learning that, too, one never gets...More

Rancho Pitaya is small and intimate and is located in a village not far from Oaxaca. The three rooms are lovely and the food is a highlight -- prepared by local women with local ingredients and recipes. We occupied all three guest rooms so had...More

When I decided to relocate my horse ranch in 2010 to Rojas de Cuauhtemoc and began building Rancho Pitaya, my "theme song" was "keep it simple". I left the old growth nopal and organ cacti as well as the mature Tepejuage tree, a rare endemic...More

I learned about Rancho Pitaya on a plane ride to Oaxaca and having ridden for 10 plus years almost 15 years ago I decided to book a half day ride. Amazing place with superbly trained horses. Farina our guide was calm, supportive and knew how...More

I feel very fortunate to have found such an ideal spot to build Rancho Pitaya. There are cacti on the property over a 100 years old. Horses like Centurion and Tory have been part of our team for over a decade. Farina is indeed a...More

We stayed at the ranch for 3 days of horseback riding. Our room was large and clean and the food was wonderful. Each day we went riding in a different area. Each was fun with beautiful scenery. We are not horse people and never felt...More

Response from RanchoPitaya, Owner at Rancho PitayaResponded August 25, 2017

The Oaxaca countryside is not only beautiful but also fascinating - as you experienced during your rides. If it's not a pair of yoked oxen plowing the fields, there's a donkey cart heading down the lane. Exotic flora in the way of massive candelabra cacti...More
