Welcome to Casa Cuatroalba!

You will love this extraordinary place for horseback riding in Mexico

The Hacienda was founded in 1582 and has undergone remodeling throughout the 18th to the 20th centuries. There are official records from the historical archive of the Queretaro State that the construction was a gift from Hernán Cortés to La Malinche, his concubine, who would soon marry the Spanish captain Juan Jaramillo.

Alonso Pérez Bocanegra was another important owner who is credited for using the San Juan del Rio  river as an energy source for the operation of a mill.

In 1645, Juan Frias Valenzuela, ordered the construction of the beautiful chapel and the Hacienda is considered as a land of work and livestock.

Now a days, we receive tourist from all parts of the world, it has become a beautiful hotel with 5 stars accommodations, huge green areas, spectacular construction, spa, gym,  and Temazcal ritual service.

My cousin Roberto Lara and a server, Camilo Romero, your hosts, grew between the un-sleepy city and the tranquility but adventurous feeling of the ranch with all type of wildlife, cattle, sheep, fighting bulls and of course our beloved horses.
