The Mayan Dude Ranch is family owned and operated. You can expect the kind of hospitality you get when you visit your favorite doting Grandmother. Delicious home cooked meals, cozy bed to sleep in, and activities you can't do at your home in the city. The hospitality of the staff, from check-in, to maid service, food/snacks and equestrian activities is...

We spent the day and enjoyed the roping demonstration, guitar music, hayride where we saw scores of deer, delicious BBQ, and line dancing lessons. The staff was charming and friendly. The pool area was nice to sit by when you wanted some quiet time. The food was homemade and delicious! Thank you Judy and Paul
