Welcome to a Working Ranch "El Xotolar", Experience the wide open spaces of rural Mexico not like a tourist, but as a member of the Morín Ruiz Family on Xotolar Ranch. You will ride through spectacular countryside with breathtaking views and stunning landscapes.Guides Tomás and Felíx Morín share their vast knowledge and skills while keeping your safety in mind.After your ride, enjoy an authentic ranch "comida" (luncheon) of delicious, freshly prepared specialties of Xotolar Ranch along with a cold "cerveza" (beer).We are not a commercial tour company, but family owned and operated. We offer a variety of beautiful scenic rides in the mountains outside of San Miguel de Allende. We are located adjacent to ancient Pre-Hispanic Toltec Pyramids, that you will be able to clearly watch from the distance. We can prove with ID and history, that all the staff that makes the tours are the true native. Activities: Horseback Riding adventures, Ranch and Rodeo Demonstrations, Camping, Sunset and Evening Adventures Rides, Cattle Drives for Experienced riders. Hiking tour at Cañada de la Virgin Pyramid and much more, ASKING!
