If you’ve ever wanted to vacation at a dude ranch, you’re in luck. Tanque Verde Ranch, one of the world’s best dude ranches, is located in Tucson.
This upscale adobe dude ranch is surrounded by the beauty of Saguaro National Park and offers a wealth of activities to create an experience you’ll never forget.
We recently stayed at the all-inclusive ranch and are excited to share our experience:
We stayed in a Hacienda Studio that offered views of the Santa Catalina Mountains and Rincon Mountains. The sunrises and sunsets on our private patio were phenomenal.
The property sits on 60,000 acres of stunning desert landscape. The entire property was picturesque with beautiful landscaping throughout.
Trail rides and lessons are offered with the ranch’s 180 horses. The ranch caters to every level of horsemanship, providing the ultimate dude ranch experience for both beginners and experienced riders.
We took an intermediate horsemanship class where we learned how to lope. Our instructor, Randy, was amazing and helped everyone lope by the end of the lesson.
If you want to enjoy the sun or cool off, the ranch has indoor and outdoor pools & jacuzzis to enjoy. The jacuzzi is great after a day of riding.
The ranch offers a guided hike in the Sagauro National Park or you can get a map and hike one of the 5 trails on property.
We loved waking up and having coffee on our private patio to enjoy the amazing views. The lounge chairs were perfect for relaxing!
We LOVED all the horses on property. They were friendly, well-trained and great out on the trails.
Tennis and basketball courts are available. The ranch offers couples tennis mixers so you an get to know other vacationers.
If you like to fish, the ranch has a catch and release lake. They provide all the equipment!
