Mexico Ranch Vacations Photo Journey

July 10, 2013

Peaceful meadows, colorful local markets, flowering cacti, charming villages, ancient haciendas, and Mexican hospitality... these are just some things you may experience on Mexico horseback riding vacations.

The below photos come to us from Rancho Las Cascadas, a Mexico horseback riding vacation ranch on a central Mexican mountain plateau. This guest ranch is bordered by three waterfalls-- Las Cascadas-- that give the ranch its name. It is located just 90 minutes North of Mexico International Airport.

Depending on the time of year you visit, you'll see a variety of flora and fauna, including fragrant African mimosa trees. The terrain surrounding the ranch is diverse. You could visit several times and not ride the same trail twice. 

These ranch photos take you through the diversity of horseback riding in Mexico at Rancho Las Cascadas, a Top 20 Ranch pick.
