Rancho Los Baños is a 30,000 acre adventure guest ranch and authentic, genuine cattle ranch located at the foothills of the Sierra Madres, the Mexican Rockies, just 55 miles south of the southeast Arizona town of Douglas in beautiful, safe, secure northeast Sonora, Mexico. We are a real, genuine ranch for real, genuine people.

We are also a scenic nature travel destination and pristine wilderness area enveloped by some of the most unique, inspiring, diverse and spectacular desert landscapes anywhere. At the ranch, guests stay inside 30,000 acres of exclusive, serene, remote, quiet and protected wilderness. Active guests with a love of the outdoors, of discovering new cultures and places, and of respecting nature have a wonderful stay with us. If you seek an active adventure travel destination, our ranch might be the place for you.

Not to be outdone, our rest and relaxation are unmatched, as you reenergize and rejuvenate surrounded by pristine and beautiful natural surroundings, as more and more scientific studies are showing. Indeed, at our off-the-grid ranch, you will escape the wired world and enter the natural world.

While we are located in spectacular northeast Sonora, Mexico, we are so close to southeast Arizona that we would like you to consider our ranch for a possible stay. Our offices are located in Tucson, and we personally pick you up and offer roundtrip transportation from Tucson or Douglas to the Rancho, so you can leave the driving to us and the sightseeing to you.

If you love riding, there is no comparision in the Southwest. We offer a land, a vastness, seclusion and scenery that is incomparable, a level above any guest/working/dude ranch in Arizona, and more scenic, unique, exotic, pristine and spectacular as well.

Offering high desert diversity and vistas not seen in the US Southwest, with 30,000 pristine acres of back country riding, the ranch offers a great holiday stay, with trail rides that thrill, challenge, educate and inspire. If you seek an active adventure travel destination, our ranch might be the place for you. Our diverse, high desert landscapes offer scenery, diversity and vegetation simply not seen in the US Southwest, with combination of terrain, elevation [7,500-3,200 ft] and vegetation that make our ranch truly unique.

Offering a freedom seldom experienced in traditional guest ranches, you will ride as it has always been meant to, surrounded by complete beauty, with little restraints, few rules, no fences, with great horses, in amazing diversity, and in sheer vastness that is breathtaking. At Los Banos, our riding program offers quality over quantity, putting people over profit.

Combined with great B&B-style accommodations and service, all inclusive packages, unbeatable rates, Mexican hospitality and cuisine that is second to none, close proximity to the United States, staying in pristine and serene land, with a natural scenery that is spectacular to see, together with world-class horseback riding and hiking, Rancho Los Baños is sure to make your stay an exciting, fun-filled, relaxing and memorable one.
