Experience Unparalleled Open-Range Horseback Riding in Mexico
'Easy & Relaxed' or 'Fast & Furious', we have a Horse and Trail for every Rider
We warmly invite you to visit our guest ranch in the heart of Mexico for some of the most incredible horseback riding in the world.
The riding, and our horses at Rancho Las Cascadas, are unsurpassed. There are no fences, no gates, no limits - just panoramic vistas, endless space and a wide variety of terrain!
Whether this is your first time riding a horse, or you are an advanced rider, you will appreciate our athletic herd, beautiful trails and professional wranglers.
Tour the Mexican Countryside on Horseback
Join us in rural Mexico’s open countryside, with its villages unchanged by time.
Pass farmers plowing with oxen, free-grazing cattle, goats and sheep.
See egrets and ducks roosting on tranquil lakes as the horses splash along the water's edge and cross flowing rivers with tumbling waterfalls.
When you need a break from riding, you can stop in one of the local 'tiendas' for a refreshing beverage.
On full-day rides, you might sample the mole in a little fonda or check out a local market.
Weather in Central Mexico
There’s never a bad time of year for a horseback riding vacation at Rancho Las Cascadas. In the mountain plateau of Central Mexico, we enjoy 333 days of sunshine a year.
There’s always a cool breeze and the year-round midday temperatures average around 75F/22C. Sounds great, right?

You haven’t been horseback riding until you’ve been horseback riding in Mexico!
Rancho Las Cascadas is surrounded by mountains, forests, flat grasslands, and lakes. It’s a magnificent place to explore on horseback at any pace.
Most of our guests choose to ride a la carte. We have over 30 guided trails to choose from, so every day our staff checks in to see what you’re in the mood for.
You can ride anywhere from one to six hours and choose a different horse and trail every day if you’d like.
If you prefer more structure on your horseback riding vacation, our guest experience managers can customize an itinerary suited to your riding ability and preferences.
We cater to all levels of riding experience and confidence.
Our calm and trustworthy horses are perfect for beginner and novice riders who want to take in the beauty of the area while enjoying peaceful strolls or sedate canters.
Confident and willing riders are never disappointed with our horses and the amount of freedom to canter and gallop.
Unlike many other guest ranches , the land around Rancho Las Cascadas is perfect for those who love a fast pace and we have a great selection of willing four-legged friends to team up with for your adventure.
Something for Everyone: Over 30 Guided Trails
Our horses love to work with you and put all their soul into it. Each one is loved by us and our guests for their individuality. Each ride should be an enjoyed by both the horse and rider - considering and respecting the limitations of both.
We have three types of horses at Rancho Las Cascadas:
Criollo - Their enormous stamina makes them extremely suitable for long distance riding through rough countryside. They adapt well to different situations, are calm and reliable – perfect mounts for exploring the Mexican highlands.
Quarter Horse - Extremely sure footed and agile. They have a calm, gentle demeanor and steady temperament. Because they are quick learners, it is easy to train them and they need very little guidance from their riders once they understand their job. Together, these characteristics make them ideal for carrying a beginner on a ride through the open ranges of Mexico.
Azteca - Extremely sure footed and agile. They have a calm, gentle demeanor and steady temperament. Because they are quick learners, it is easy to train them and they need very little guidance from their riders once they understand their job.
The combination of Mexican Hospitality & Swiss Management guarantee you the perfect stay at this Guest Ranch...
