We checked out the website and really liked the landscape and the fact that it was a working ranch and offered a variety of options for riding horses.Our experience was great Tomas and his son picked us up at our hotel and were so nice and drove us to the ranch and told us all about his family and the history of the ranch and we got to milk a cow learn about how they make cheese.Then we had a 2 hour ride through the canyon which was awesome.The cowboys were great we got to trot and canter and it was a lot of fun.When we got back there was a delicious lunch prepared.It was a trip highlight would highly recommend!

This was our second time to do the horseback riding with the Marin family and it exceeded our expectations. Leo and his uncle and the other cowboys were great!! It was an enjoyable experience that I would highly recommend to others. On the drive to the ranch, it started to rain some but Leo and his aunt were prepared when we arrived with ponchos, sweaters, and plastic covers for our hats. The dinner after the ride was amazing!

My husband and I were a bit nervous as neither of us had been horseback riding in over 20 yrs... but Lio and Enrique and the rest of the vaqueros made us feel relaxed and safe from the very beginning . Simply gorgeous ride through gorgeous mountains and streams on very experienced and gentle horses made the experience truly enjoyable. The staff at Xotolar Ranch were all very friendly and were so accommodating talking our cell phones to take great photos for us throughout the entire ride — so helpful !! We were treated to a wonderful comida after our ride with delicious enchiladas , cheese made fresh that day on the ranch , cactus fruit salsa and hibiscus iced tea. Clearly this family-owned ranch takes pride and care in everything they do to make their guest riders really shows. Also great communication from Tomás to confirm our reservation and pick up details...much appreciated ! We have lived in San Miguel now for 2 years and this was by far our best day trip “ adventure” we have experienced . Definitely plan a visit to Xotolar Ranch— you will be glad you did!! Thank you again to Lio and all his guys- Rhonda and Peter
