Why Should You Take a New Mexico Digital Detox?

Now, more than ever, we rely on our electronic devices for almost every aspect of our daily lives. Despite studies proving that too much screen time increases our anxiety and significantly affects our sleep quality and attention span, we can’t imagine a day without our devices. Though there are countless advantages to smartphones, our relationship with screens and technology should be well-balanced. So, if you feel like screens are taking up too much of your day, it’s time for a New Mexico digital detox. This screen break is the ideal way to leave the technology behind and reconnect with the moments that matter most!

No Cell Service & No Distractions


If you’re searching for an ideal remote oasis, Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch is the place for you! Our dude ranch is 85-miles from the nearest stoplight, and cellphone reception stops 70-miles before you reach the ranch. Instead of scrolling through social media and responding to emails, take advantage of this time to fully embrace this unspoiled setting, and admire the true essence of The Gila. The journey to the ranch is part of the experience. Give yourself time to slow down and enjoy the adventure that lies ahead of you. The drive out to our ranch will take you through some of the most beautiful countrysides with incredible views, endless blue skies, and wildlife roaming the open fields.

Pro-tip: Although GPS service is unreliable beyond this point, there’s no need to worry because we’ll provide printed directions you can use to continue your journey without any issues.

Unplug and Enjoy the Moments That Matter

Our all-inclusive dude ranch is the perfect environment to reconnect and create lifetime memories with your family and friends. Because of our small size, your days will be filled with horseback riding, hiking, and exploring 1,000-year-old cliff dwellings with an intimate group. After a day on the trails, you have the option to spend the evenings gathered around the dinner table playing family games, line dancing in the rec hall, roasting marshmallows and stargazing around the campfire, or just relaxing with a good book!

Stay Off-the-Grid at Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch

While you’re here, you can enjoy your vacation without worrying about emails, phone calls, or otherworldly distractions. In fact, our guests embrace the lack of wi-fi and tell their offices, “I’ll be out-of-office without access to email.” Our well-appointed and comfortable cabins will still provide all the creature comforts. Situated beneath the sweet-smelling Ponderosa Pines, each cabin comes fully equipped with a private bath, propane fireplace, covered porch, and complimentary homemade cookies.

After a few days of a New Mexico dude ranch vacation, you’ll lose track of the date and find yourself completely relaxed!. We hope that this unique experience provides an unforgettable adventure and encourages a healthy relationship with your devices.
