Kid Friendly Texas Vacation: Mayan Dude Ranch in Bandera!
Get those cowboy boots, shirts and jeans out of the closet and head to the “Cowboy Capital of the World”, aka Bandera just 47 miles north-west of San Antonio. The Mayan Dude Ranch has been around for a long, long time.
My husband used to go when he was a kid. So when my in-laws wanted to have a family reunion this summer, they chose this wonderful place. The ranch is run by the same family, the Hicks and everyone working there makes you feel like you are part of their family too!
Lunch and dinner are buffet style in the main pavilion, a huge outdoor space with a roof. They have so many options, that everybody is bound to find something delicious! We had a crowd ranging in age from 3-year-old to …much older and we all enjoyed every meal! They had great salads, hamburgers, homemade bread…. And at about 5.45pm, they had snacks: my son’s favorite moment because it was a complete surprise!
I enjoyed meeting the Hicks family throughout the ranch and meeting the other guests, we all felt relaxed and we barely noticed that there is only WiFi in the main office! Actually, my son soon forgot about Minecraft but discovered his love of horses and ping-pong!
We spent great quality time together, walked a lot and made wonderful memories. So if you want to enjoy a unique break from the routine not too far from Houston, head to the Mayan Dude Ranch in Bandera. The Hicks family will welcome you with open arms!
