Outdoor Activites

Horseback Riding Program – If you’re an experienced rider or never been on a horse, we’ve got the ride for you. Our wranglers will match you with a horse appropriate to your experience level and lead you on scenic rides through sandy washes, over rocky terrain, past incredible rock formations and across lush desert grasslands. For more experienced riders, loping and trotting can be incorporated into rides where the terrain allows. Lessons are also available. Horseback riding is available to children 5 years and older.

Guided Off-Road Tours – Go on an off-road adventure in one of our UTVs (Utility Task Vehicle). Our guide will take you and up to four other guests on an adventure to the United States-Mexico border or take you on a trip to explore the nearby ghost town ruins.Guided Fat Tire Electric Bike Tours – Trade one saddle for another and experience the southwest on a fat tire electric mountain bike. You can peddle on your own or get assistance on those tough hills from a high powered motor capable of 20 mph speeds.

Guided Fat Tire Electric Bike Tours are available to children 12 years and older. Sport Shooting and 22 Range – As long as you’re visiting our “wild west” ranch, you might as well participate in our safe and fun shooting program. We don’t just have your typical shooting range experience, you can expect targets at different angles, heights and speed variations. Channel your inner Wild Bill Hickok and attempt to hit various objects set against a southern desert backdrop.

Sport Shooting is available to children 12 years and older. Some firearms are restricted to children 16 years and older.

3D Archery Range – Newly built archery range right on the ranch featuring 3D targets and the latest equipment.

Tour Buenos Aires wildlife refuge and run into giant jackrabbits, roadrunners and deer. Hike along old western ghost towns that still feature intact buildings.

Bird Watching – Rancho de la Osa borders the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge and is a birdwatching paradise. Our ranch and surrounding areas are home to the endangered Masked Bobwhite Quail and 300 other species including Herons, Gray Hawks, Vermillion Fly Catchers, Loggerhead Shrikes and Golden Eagles,

Swimming – After a long day on the road or trails, nothing feels better than a relaxing dip in our heated pool. Great way to meet friends, soak up some sun or catch up on your reading.

Reviews of Rancho de la Osa

"I went for a girls' weekend with a friend and we had a really fantastic and unforgettable experience. I live in southern Arizona and have visited a lot of attractions and hotels, but this was hands-down the most special and unique place I've stayed in the area. The building and grounds are beautiful and full of history about which staff are very knowledgeable. Food was delicious. My friend and I did archery with staff member (cowboy) Adam who was a wonderful teacher; all management and staff were very generous and helpful. Would strongly recommend any time of year, for any length of time." - JRP
