Do you like adventure, scenic landscapes and pristine wilderness? If so, then Rancho Los Baños Adventure Guest Ranch is the ideal vacation destination for you. Located at the foot of the Sierra Madre (the Mexican Rockies) in northeast Sonora, Mexico, which is just 55miles south of the southeast Arizona town of Douglas you will find this privately owned 30,000 acre guest ranch and cattle ranch. Rancho Los Baños, or Ranch of the Springs in English, is in a safe and secure area centered at the crossroads of the Sonoran and Chihuahuan deserts.
Enveloped by some of the most unique, inspiring and diverse desert landscapes this protected wilderness preserve is remote, serene and promises otherworldly landscapes to its visitors. Here you will enjoy world-class backcountry horseback riding that will take you through several different habitats that encompass lake, river, mountain, high desert, box canyon and riparian ecosystems. Besides the many scenic nature trails, you can also ride to numerous historical attractions like a 17th century abandoned Jesuit gold mine or visit the remains of a 19th century bandit hiding camp where both American and Mexican outlaws went to lay low. You can also ride to 2,000 year old pre-Colombian dwellings full of pictographs, deep inside El Cajon Canyon, or visit a 20 mile long lake, and its dam, built during the Great Depression by the architects and engineers that also built Hoover Dam (the dam is a smaller replica of Hoover). This is just a small sampling of what you will see and learn about while staying at the ranch. From atop your horse you will be breathing and living the history of days gone by while taking in spectacular scenery.
Aside from horseback riding there is canyon hiking, jeep eco-tours, river and lake kayaking, fishing, wildlife spotting and birding. Nighttime at Rancho Los Baños you will experience star-gazing at its finest! You will be awed by the tens of thousands of stars visible to the naked eye since there isn’t any interference of unnatural light. Avid nature lovers and thrill seekers will revel in all that there is to see and do at this guest ranch.
Modern, homey, B&B-style ranch lodge and cabins featuring all the creature comforts of home provide comfortable and relaxing accommodations white staying at your home-away-from-home. Gourmet, International and Mexican home-cooked cuisine is served family-style in either the dining room or outside on the balcony overlooking breathtaking scenery. Meal times are a wonderful opportunity to swap stories about your day with other guests and to make new friends.
Rancho Los Baños Adventure Guest Ranch caters to a new generation of adventure travellers who are seeking a thrilling, challenging, educational, fun-filled vacation in a unique setting.
