Each year we have been honored to host some very special weddings. Each is very individual, tailored to the tastes of the unique couples who have chosen to wed here at Las Trancas.

"Both Art & I were just blown away by the house. You have beautifully brought it back to its grandiose splendor. We toured the unfinished parts and have no doubt that what ever your plans are, they will be wonderful. Art loved every room, the great details in the bathrooms & all the books you have around. I absolutely loved everything! Your staff is just the best, so nice & willing to help. Art doesn't particularly care for Mexican food (in the States), but once he tried Yolanda's caldo & salsa, he was hooked. He particularly enjoyed the mango, so fresh & sweet. And then Juan kept forthcoming a nice supply of beer, so he was a happy camper. That said, I know we will be back for more days, to fully enjoy the house, the peace & quietness, go horseback riding, lounge in the pool & become plump & content on Yolanda's food. So much to do, so little time. Thanks a million & we'll be in touch."

"L as Trancas was just too perfect, the food and Yolanda were incredible and she especially made a great impression on us ,we all miss her and her cooking ... I just hope I tipped them enough, the language was fun and especially the misunderstandings ... comfort beyond royal and the entire staff incredibly helpful and generous, Juan was totally there for you ... he's great and costs, next time any price thanks again."

"Wow! What an experience - we were blown away when we walked in the door ... And it just got better and better with each passing moment. Your grace and hospitality made our stay at Las Trancas unforgettable. Everyone on your staff did a magnificent job accommodating us - Yolanda is a jewel! Juan and Lupe and all the rest were so good at making us feel at home. Alejandro ”squired” us all about, with warmth and patience. Hacienda Las trances transported us to another time and place - a place of beauty, rest, reflection, and renewal. I’ve never had such a wonderful vacation."

"Trancas is a rare jewel set in the middle of Mexico’s crown. One hopes for and seldom receives such a fantastic vacation in one week’s time. Everything about this place is a pure delight, from Yolanda’s delicious meals to your charming burro. So many wonderful memories."

"We are having a great time in spite of the fact that a large hurricane is heading toward our home area, Pensacola. I am glad that we have the TV. Your place here is breathtaking. I can't believe what you have done, and done it so well. The staff is looking after our every need. Alejandro is a great chauffeur. We want to go in to SM tomorrow night for live music. We also plan to go to Pozos. We are very happy that we found your Hacienda. The village is great."

"We had a wonderful time. Your house is fascinating. What an incredible job you have done at creating the ambiance of another era. I look forward to returning to see your progress. I did not have an opportunity to ride, but will look forward to it on another trip. Juan, Lupe, Yolanda, Alejandro - all were gracious, attentive, and hard working. Having readily available access to a driver was critical to creating the afore mentioned "ambiance". It allowed us to relax and never have to plan too far ahead, Alejandro was always available and ready. We all enjoyed the evening meals prepared by Yolanda. We were not consistent with the dinner hour, and Yolanda also was always gracious and ready at the hour requested. And Lupe and Juan take their responsibilities seriously, concerned that we were satisfied with everything. They are delightful people. Thank you for making a delightful week possible."
