Guest Capacity


Rancho de la Osa is Arizona’s most historic ranch. Ride the trails frequented by U.S. Presidents, movie stars, and other dignitaries. Learn to sort cattle as ranchers have for generations. Explore Native American ruins, the U.S.-Mexico border, or the neighboring 120,000 acres of National Wildlife Refuge.

After a day spent adventuring, enjoy a cool drink in our Cantina, the oldest continually occupied building in the state of Arizona. Then retreat to the Hacienda or your historic guest room to relax in rich Southwestern color and culture.

Rancho de la Osa is located less than a 1 ½ hour drive from Tucson in Sasabe, Arizona, in the high desert grasslands of the Sonoran Desert, with spectacular mountain views in every direction including the iconic Baboquivari Peak.

Our ranch offers an unparalleled guest ranch experience with exceptional food and drink; unmatched hospitality from our staff; and different activities for you and your family to enjoy. Become a part of our storied history and join us for a truly unique vacation experience.

Rancho de la Osa offers horseback riding for all skill levels through the ranch’s many sandy washes, over rocky terrain, past incredible rock formations, and through lush desert grasslands. Explore the area during Guided Off-Road UTV or on a hiking trail. And there’s plenty of space to relax with a cool drink in the Cantina or by the pool.
