* A traveler said: "A very positive and worthwhile tour, that we thoroughly enjoyed. From p/u to return, we were very pleased. Our driver and car(there were 4 of us) were very safe and clean. Our tour guide Israel was “the best” Very knowledgeable and eager to answer our questions and easy to understand. We saw all major sites in Guanajuato and had a very unique and interesting silver mine stop on our way back. If u wish to see Mummy museum, be sure to tell your guide, because u need to do it early. (We did not wish to visit, but when we talked about it, Israel warned us it is very busy) I think if u have time Guanajuato is a must visit and this is a very good tour"

We are located in the high plateau 18 km from the center of SMA in a rural and pristine environment untouched by modernization. Our land is situated adjoining the newly opened archaeological site of Cañada de la Virgen, a pre-Columbian construction of pyramids and other architectural structures of the central basin of the Laja river that is attributed to tolteca-chichimecas groups of central Mexico. Here our guests can experience the true cultural life that is Mexico. You will enjoy the wide open spaces, not like a tourist, but as a member of the Morín Family.

We were two women traveling together and I look forward to returning with my family for another adventure. Our host, Rodrigo started off our morning with a visit to a local family ranch home where we gathered fresh eggs for our breakfast, played with the farm animals and then had a tortilla making lesson before we sat down to a scrumptious breakfast overlooking a beautiful valley. After we got outfitted with our horses and off we went with our guide, June, and two Vaqueros, Nico & Antonio. We rode for several hours through beautiful mountain terrain and enjoyed a hearty lunch made by Nico & Antonio. We arrived at our campsite early evening and enjoyed a campfire and many laughs with our host June, followed by a wonderful dinner created by our Vaqueros. Our peaceful sleep with a star studded sky and waking to the whinny’ing of the horses was was priceless! Thanks for a wonderful experience and we can’t wait to see you all again!"
