Welcome to Hacienda Las Trancas. This huge, old ex-hacienda midway
between San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato, is situated outside Dolores Hidalgo in a small, safe, friendly village. Once a presidio, or fort, along the silver trail in 1567, it became a hacienda in the 1700's. Walls are meter- thick adobe. Beautiful, rustic elegance, furnished with colonial antiques and local artisan pieces. Private, fully staffed, including 20 full-time cooks, maids, gardeners, bilingual manager and concierges, massage therapists, and stable/pool personnel.
Enjoy 3 generous, delicious, authentic/gourmet Mexican meals per day. Our menu can be changed to accommodate your dietary preferences.
Luxurious bedding with high thread-count linens and feather beds,
plus down duvets. There are 11 beautiful bedrooms, ten of which are incredible suites, with satellite t.v and high-speed internet, hot-and-cold water dispensers, sitting area, private terraces, propane fireplaces, and beautiful views of the Sierra Madres. The hacienda is approximately 50 rooms, more than 40,000 sq. ft. under roof, with ten walled-in private acres. There are gardens and enormous porches. Practice your soccer skills on our field, basketball on the court, or invite the locals to a game of volleyball on our private sand court. Spend a few hours riding the
horses down to the river and watch the bald eagles. Work out in our 17-piece Cybex gym, then relax with the help of our private massage therapists in the hacienda spa.
Pet-by permission only
Smoking outdoors, please.
Step out your door and onto the silver trail. This is an ideal location for visiting a different colonial town each day, or simply enjoying the best of Mexico's Bajio region. Start the day with a facial or amazing massage with one of our 6 therapists in our own spa. Shop for beautiful talavera pottery in Dolores Hidalgo, shop for EVERYTHING in San Miguel, while you enjoy gourmet restaurants, hot springs, and golf. Wander the charming streets and cobbled alleys of Guanajuato. Chauffeur available for reasonable fee, also very knowledgeable bilingual guide for trail rides (horse, car, or mountain bike,) and seeing historic silver trail locations that most tourists NEVER see.

Thank you so much again for an extraordinary experience and wedding at Las Trancas. I really do not believe I have ever been anywhere more beautiful... not just the place itself, but all the little touches: the taste and awesome artifacts with which you guys have decorated it, the lovely staff, the food, everything. And the wedding was amazing, everyone said it was the best they had ever been to.
Your staff is remarkable... The wedding went down perfectly... Everything went exactly as we'd talked about. I think that's why it felt like a dream... There was no differentiating between what we hoped would happen and what did happen. The folkloric dancers were a huge hit (and what a great job they did!), and the tequila burro and the fireworks were a surprise to everyone. The fireworks even surprised Phil and me, they were SO GOOD! Everyone was just laughing and shouting and clapping hysterically. It was hilarious. The waitstaff and bartenders were wonderful. The trio - oh my gosh, they played the songs we'd picked out as if they'd written them themselves.
I know it must have take a lot of practice.
It was really special.
So clearly it was a thrilling, relaxing, fun, memorable-in-every-way week. I think our friends and family were really blown away by the Hacienda, the staff, and the way we did the wedding. Many of them told us it was the most unique and fun wedding they'd ever been to...The best part is that we did it that way for us, because that's the way we wanted to get married.
We still can't believe we pulled off a wedding just the way we wanted to do it, and everyone had such a blast.
