In the heart of La Paz, where the desert meets the sea, Rancho San Lorenzo beckons with its sprawling 1000-acre expanse, inviting you and your group to experience the beauty of Baja California Sur in a one-of-a-kind celebration of Mexican tradition – the Posada!
Derived from the Spanish word for “inn” or “lodging,” a Posada is a reenactment of the Holy Pilgrimage, where participants go door to door seeking shelter, echoing the biblical journey. At Rancho San Lorenzo, this tradition takes on a unique charm; Posada guests can traverse the ranch on horseback, connecting with the essence of the Holy Pilgrimage, embodying the spirit of Mary and Joseph’s quest. In the well-maintained training ring, both seasoned and beginner riders can share in the rich equestrian heritage of the Baja Peninsula.
The ranch’s picturesque outdoor spaces beckon guests to explore their surroundings, where manicured landscapes seamlessly merge with the native Sonoran desert fauna. The barns and pasture areas, meticulously designed and maintained, provide comfort for horses and farm animals. Truly, Rancho San Lorenzo is a testament to thoughtful environmental practices, ensuring a luxurious yet low-impact experience for visitors.
Before evening falls over the desert, posada celebrants shouldn’t miss the opportunity to help ranch staff with feeding time in the barn. Helping care for the animals becomes a symbolic gesture, mirroring the humble origins of the Christmas story. Chickens, ducks, donkeys, goats and peacocks meandre about, creating a lively and heartwarming atmosphere.
But remember, the Posada is not only a celebration of faith but also a joyous occasion filled with music, food, and camaraderie! As the sun sets, Rancho San Lorenzo transforms into an enchanting landscape of entertainment. Rooftop lounges offer panoramic views of the valley, the Coyote Mountains, and the Sea of Cortez. Large terraces invite you to unwind, swinging in a hammock or sitting under the gazebo amidst the paddocks. Firepits flicker, casting a warm glow over the surroundings, creating a magical space perfect for gathering and storytelling.
Under the starlit sky, family-style dining tables become the focal point, where guests can savour the essence of Mexican hospitality. For Posada groups, the ranch provides a fully equipped kitchen and dining services for groups opting to bring their own food and beverages. Otherwise, guests can choose to indulge in a curated dinner experience prepared by the talented ranch chefs for $250 per person.
Renting the ranch for a Posada celebration ensures full and exclusive access to all its facilities. Parties are permitted to bring musical equipment or instruments to play and dance the night away, or simply let the sound of laughter and singing voices float into the crisp desert night air.
As the Posada concludes, guests are left with cherished memories of a celebration that transcends time. Join us at Rancho San Lorenzo for a tradition that captures the heart and soul of Mexican heritage, set amidst the enchanting landscapes of La Paz.
