Day of the Dead Ride Program

Oct 31 - Nov 05, 2024

Each days ride differs in length and speeds due to terrain, but expect to be riding for up to 5 hours per day. We will check in daily with our guests if you like to ride more or less and even the ride on the Day of the Dead - we have options for beginners as well. The following is a possible scenario but can be changed...

 

OCT 31 - THURSDAY

Arrive today (or the night before with early check-in**) and join your fellow adventurers for lunch. Ease into your holiday with a first ride Visit Ex-Hacienda 'La Goleta,' built in 1690 by the Spaniards.

NOV 1 – FRIDAY

Visit the weekly local market in Jilotepec, featuring colorful stands with Charro riding gear, and local arts and handicrafts. Alternatively, relax by the infinity pool. Enjoy lunch under the 'tree of hearts' before an afternoon ride. The air is filled with the sounds of nature, and the gentle rhythm of your horse's hooves adds to the peaceful ambiance.

Tonight Rancho Las Cascadas hosts a special dinner in memory of all our loved ones who have departed.

Bright and early on November 2nd, the guests meet by the horses to decorate them with marigolds for an all-day cabalgata (ride). Marigolds strong fragrance helps lead the dead back to their altar. The horses look 

absolutely gorgeous as they make their way from town to town. From the smallest cemetery to the largest one. Even the locals point at us and take pictures!

In the afternoon, take a guided walk to the waterfalls surrounding the ranch.
