My girlfriend and I showed up via cab to the little ranch in the jungle with the horses saddled and ready to go. Trails through the jungle were very cool, pass the abandoned beach side mansion and trot along the beach. Luna was a fantastic guide and photographer. Two thumbs up! Loved it!

What a wonderful experience! The staff, horses, and dogs were all wonderful. The ride is an excellent mix of jungle and beach and the beach was secluded and beautiful. I can't imagine finding a better place or grout to ride with in the area.

We visited Steffi and gang for a second time this Spring. My husband, two kids (10 & 12) & I visited ~2 years ago & when I shared that we were going back to Mexico, seeing the horses & Steffi at the ranch was #1 on the list of things we HAD to do. Steffi is an amazing host. She... More

This was my second visit to Rancho Baaxal, this time I brought my family. The horseback riding is what my family talk about the most concerning our vacation. Thanks Steffi for another memorable experience! The staff is wonderful, the ride is perfect going through the tropical forest, and then along the beach. Lisa, Steffi and the others have taken horses... More

Two friends and I went to Rancho Baxaal as I had always wanted to ride a horse along the beach. Plus I just love horses. I researched horseback riding in Maya Rivieria and ended up reading very positive reviews from TripAdvisor and booked from there. Before booking they were very helpful and quick in responding to any email questions I... More

The whole ride was beautiful, the horses were clearly well cared for and then to hear their individual stories because they are all rescue horses was heartbreaking but then to see their wonderful lives now and how far they have come was a nice ending to a great ride. I haven't been on a horse for many years but I... More

I'd like to say a big thank you to Luna and Lalo for such a great afternoon!! I'd researched riding in the Cancun area and the site that I kept coming back to was Rancho Baaxal. The horses are very well behaved and cared for, I rode Rey, he was a gentle sole, I fell in love with him, such... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find that my husband and I had a private tour. You might suspect that, since there were only two of us, we would have one tour guide. But we had a leader and someone to pull up the rear. Both guides were kind and personable. So thank you Steffi and Luna for a wonderful tour.... More

When I knew that my tickets were booked to vacation in Mexico, the first thing I did was look for somewhere to go riding. It was important to me that I went to a ranch that put the well being of their horses first as many places do not. I read the reviews and decided that Rancho Baaxal would be... More

First I must say that, having thoroughly researched Rancho Baaxal via their website, Facebook page & Trip Advisor reviews, I was so happy to see that the descriptions of the horses, the Rancho itself, the staff & their protocols were both informative and, happily, a true representation of what you'll find there. This is a well-run, very efficient business that... More
