My wife loves horse, I do not. But after a number of snorkeling tours, thought it was time for a change. Went through NCL this November 2014. Very nice people. Talked throughout the entire bus ride. Started at the port area, went to the ranch about 1/2-way around the island and then continued around to the port from the other... More

We booked this trip through Disney Cruise Lines. We absolutely loved this excursion! Pato, our guide, was knowledgeable, friendly, and made our safety on and around the horses a top priority. They provided us with helmets, which were required, and we definitely recommend wearing long pants and enclosed shoes. We rode through the rain forest and learned much about the... More

When we booked the tour through Viator, we thought it was the horseback ride through the beach like the one we did in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The actual horseback ride was only about an hour long through their trail to some historic sites, not two hours ride and did not go to the beach with the horse. The beach... More

I recommend this to anyone who likes being outside, animals, learning about cultural history. Our guide Pato was so knowledgeable and genuine.

We visited the ranch as part of a combined horse riding/beach excursion. The drive to the ranch was approximately half an hour from the international pier and the bus provided by the ranch was air-conditioned and comfortable. Our guide, Pato, was friendly and helpful, selecting horses according to riding ability. There was the option to purchase a bottle of water... More

I just returned from a Royal Caribbean Cruise and this is the tour that I took in Cozumel. It was a 4.5-5 hour tour. Cost was $89. It included only one beverage. Overall I am very happy with the tour. My tour left from the pier and the meet time was 1245 for a 1300 hour departure. Our guide was... More

This was part of a combination horse ride / beach resort excursion booked through Carnival. It was a nice trip, just not as nice as it was represented to be in the literature. The ride was listed as six miles but was much closer to one mile. Although our main guide, Cleenton, gave us instructions to keep our horses five... More

I booked a shore excursion to Buenavista on a Carnival cruise for myself and two friends. They got to pick turtles in Grand Cayman, so I got to pick horses for Cozumel. I'm an experienced rider, but neither of them had ever been near a horse before. We were picked up at port in an open truck with "Mexican A/C"... More
