Ranch El Tinieblo


Ranch El Tinieblo was founded in 1865 on a 9000 acre land in the agave-rich state of Tamaulipas. Today the ranch is owned and operated by the Peréz-Salinas family who have restored the tradition and legacy of the ranch's artisanal, wild-harvest mezcal production.

With this in mind, the ranch of today operates in much the same way it did in 1865. The one major and mind-blowing change that has occurred has been the introduction of exotic animals such as zebras, wildebeest, water buffalo, watusi, oryx, elan, blackbuck, sika deer, red deer... This turns an already fascinating spot into a very unique ranch in the northeastern Mexican landscape. The ranch also has 100 head of cattle, orange trees and a plethora of rattlesnakes, white tail miquihuanense deer, wild pig, hare, rabbit, and more.


Hacienda El Tinieblo


 El Tinieblo’s facility hosts a sprawling 9 bedroom classic Mexican ranch house hidden in the centre of the 9000 acre desert property.  Within the home one can find a mezcal bar room with pool table, and a flatscreen television, a card room, and nine bedrooms with luxurious bedding, and ensuite bathrooms; perfect for indoor relaxation.  The grounds feature a large terraced area with palapas for mingling at night around the campfire.  It also has a large outdoor cooking area where our private chef is always in creation mode and stars are ready for the gazing. 


The house is flanked by a large swimming pool, jacuzzi, several guest houses and exotic wildlife.  Ranch El Tinieblo features rustic elegance where the warmth of the wilderness comes alive in the hunter’s cabin-inspired decor.  It can accommodate up to 18 people at a time.
