Myself and my dad went to Rancho Loma Bonita in May 2004 and it was the best experience I have ever had. I have owned horses for many years and know exactly what a healthy horse looks like and what horses are capable of, therefore I classed myself as an experienced rider. My dad had only been on a horse... More

I've probably spent 300 hours on horseback. So I'm not a beginner. But I'm not an expert either. This trip was a memory of a lifetime. I didn't come for the food (average), I didn't come for the busride (long), I came for the horses and the ocean. These horses are allowed to *be* horses. They play. They jockey for... More

My daughter & I went together on the ride. The bus ride was rather long, and the wait to get on the horses took awhile also. We both have ridden and owned horses and have a lot of "horse sense", they gave me a white horse that was quite moody when I got on him, and tried to get the... More

Our guide was well experienced, and extremely friendly, however, that's the extent of anything good I can say. The ride itself was nothing we couldn't do back home, with the exception of the beach. You only ride on the beach for a very small potion of the ride, the rest is on a gravel road. Once we got back, the... More

First, I was surprised to see the negative reviews, as this was one of the better things we went to do in Cancun. I understand the horses all have personalities, so maybe I just got lucky, but my wife who has never ridden before, and who gives off that vibe of nervousness, was put on a horse that matched her...

I have ridden horses all my life and can tell you from experience that this operation is run terribly, and I'm surprised more people don't get hurt. I am also extremely surprised that the rating is as high as it is, and am assuming the people who did rate it high have had little riding experience. The bus ride to... More

Last year in December 2008; My fiance and I went to Lomo Bonita because I wanted to go SO bad... we don't ride horses regularly so he wasn't too excited to go... 1: It was quite a ride on the bus from Cancun; we met in this strange place of a mall and had to ask random workers where to... More

This was truly a phenomenal experience. I have been on horses my entire life, and consider myself to be well versed. Conversely, my husband has only been on a horse three times in his entire life. We both truly enjoyed the ride and the swim. Our tour guide, Ray, matched us perfectly to our horses, based on our experience level.... More

My husband and I signed up for the horseback riding extra. It was a nghtmare. I wondered why they had us sign a waiver about accidental injury. One girl's horse rolled over 3 tmes while she was on it. She got back on - I would not have. They warned us after we paid that the horses might roll over.... More
