Why an Equitrekking Top 20 Ranch?
This is a true adventure guest ranch, offering riders and their non-riding companions a variety of top outdoor activities amid national park-like scenery. Profiled in Men’s Journal, Budget Travel and The Guardian, the Valenzuela family, cattle ranching pioneers from the northeast of Sonora dating back to the early 20th century, have owned and operated the ranch continuously since the early 1950’s. Three generations strong, the ranch’s focus on welcoming travelers and protecting area wildlife and the land makes this ranch stand out.
From the Horse’s Mouth
Located in Sonora, Mexico, Rancho Los Banos is a close vacation destination for the Arizona market, especially as round-trip transportation from Tucson is offered and included. As part of the all-inclusive packages at this adventure guest ranch, you are also personally picked up in a shuttle service and driven from Tucson to the ranch and back, leaving the driving to Rancho Los Baños and the sightseeing to you.
Untouched by tourists and away from technology, travelers are immersed in stunning natural areas including sierras, mountains, hills, mesas, rock cliffs, ravines, canyons and some of the most unspoiled wilderness you will ever see. The sheer vastness of the Sonoran and Chihuahuan Desert landscapes amazes and inspires guests.
Ride inside majestic canyons which have been compared to Zion, Arches, Sedona and Moab, in addition to Copper Canyon. Horseback riding in the high desert backcountry, you’ll be immersed in spectacular scenery amid vertical sierras, ravines and hills. Ride to historic destinations, including 2,000 year old pre-Colombian dwellings full of pictographs, a 17th century abandoned Jesuit gold mine and beyond.
Accommodations put guests in modern comfort surrounded by sheer wilderness. Most guests are very pleasantly surprised at the level of accommodation and the level of comfort and modernity. Many enjoy the simplicity of the arrangements, crave the solitude of the ranch’s quietness, the homey, cozy feel of the rooms, and the family-like atmosphere that inevitably makes friends out of total strangers.
The Rancho Los Banos and Tierra Chamahua EcoAdventures team consists of family, real cowboys, top-notch chefs, experienced wranglers and guides that, together, help make your stay memorable, relaxing and thrilling.
