Located in the small and picturesque high sierra town of Las Palmas, Rancho Capomo offers a very different experience for visitors to Puerto Vallarta. Arriving at this place is like leaving reality: It's a small town, with its people and their ancient traditions. The best part about a visit here is the chance to explore it all, be it by horse, by motorcycle, or simply by walking through the natural beauty of the area. While you explore, your hosts at the ranch prepare a hearty meal featuring grilled meat, handmade tortillas and chiles toreados. Tours include transportation, food and recreation, and can be contracted with all tour operators in Vallarta. Tours also begin at the lobby of the Hotel Continental Plaza.
We visited Rancho Capomo in early Jan. 05. We had a wonderful time and bought souveniers, which we paid for with our credit card. While I guide was was dropping the different parties off at the end of the day, Jesus received a call on his cell saying our credit card did not go through. Feeling terrible about this, once we got to our resort, we paid Jesus with cash and a nice tip for the inconvenience. We immediately called the credit card company and was told the wrong expiration date was entered. We had thought given the delightful atmosphere of the Ranch, we were even... Until the credit card bill arrived, Rancho Capomo billed us again the next day, with the correct exiration date! Did Jesus pocket the money? Was this scenario a ploy the rip innocent tourists off? This changed our experience from great to terrible.
It was defintely worth it! I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Puerto Vallarta. The horseback ride was exciting, swimming in the fresh cool pool under the running waterfall, and the authentic food prepared was fantastic.
