Tanque Verde Ranch

This ‘Dude Ranch’, established in 1868, is nestled among the majestic natural beauty of the Rincon Mountains.

With more than 60,000 acres of unspoiled and unique landscape to explore, this is an affordable Ranch experience for those of you seeking an authentic holiday on horseback!

Facilities & Activities

Whether you’re seeking to explore the desert and mountains on horseback or simply relax with your partner or family, there is much on offer here to make the most of your ‘dude ranch vacation’!

Heading out on horseback is of course the main event here, but if you are feeling a little saddle sore, try a guided hike or bike.  Relax back at the refreshing pool or join in a game of tennis or basketball.

Nearby you can also try a spot of cave exploring or mountain climbing!
