When I decided to relocate my horse ranch in 2010 to Rojas de Cuauhtemoc and began building Rancho Pitaya, my "theme song" was "keep it simple". I left the old growth nopal and organ cacti as well as the mature Tepejuage tree, a rare endemic...More

Farina, is a first rate guide: a superb rider in her own right, excellent horse trainer and very good riding instructor. Thanks for the feedback. The massive cacti at the ranch were here when I bought the property in 2010 and I tried keeping as...More

The Ranch is a great addition to a stay in Oaxaca at Casa Muguia. With the same owner very much hands-on at the Ranch. Attractively and comfortably furnished, the Ranch offers rooms with breakfast and dinner. Lunch can be provided and the cook is excellent....More

I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Rancho Pitaya. A visit to Oaxaca is not really complete without experiencing rural life and nature. With the ranch just 30 minutes from the centre of Oaxaca it is easy to do a combined stay...More
