“A MUST - VISIT when in the Bacalar/Xul Ha area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

This family-owned, family-run cowboy ranch I think is a must see in the area. Owners are real-life American ranch people, Jeff and Brenda Deval, and they bring their love of horses, the ranch life, paradise living, organic farming to their beautiful huge property that starts on the main highway entering Xul Ha from the north and extends down the tropical escarpment to the shores of Lake Bacalar.
We went for a trail ride, and after a fun romp around the corral, which made me feel like I was a cowgirl on a movie set, we started our trail ride. We learned a lot about medicinal plants and local stories as we walked through the tropical jungle foliage on a well-groomed trail and enjoyed the breathtaking vista of one of the most private tropical paradises I have ever seen when we reached the dock and aquamarine waters of the "Lake of Seven Colors"!
The swim was refreshing as the horses grazed in the shade of the palm trees.
We returned to the ranch and had some of the finest BBQ meat I have ever tasted. Brenda makes desserts and pies to die for.
We swam in the huge pool as the sun set.
We lucked out that night and some expat local musicians arrived with guitars and jammed with Jeff.
They have really nice places to stay there, but we were there for the day only.
I highly recommend this place as a stop along the Costa Maya.
