My husband booked this as a surprise for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and it truly was an amazing experience. The staff take great care of all of their horses and the people that visit, taking into account all riding levels and then pairing you with a suitable horse according to your ability. The ride to the beach through the tropical... More

We visited Rancho Baaxal on Jan 26, 2015 we were met by Steffi and Emily they were awesome and made us feel like friends, it's not a typical tourist ranch they really care and take care of the horses, had a great ride through the jungle and along the beach,scenery was beautiful would defiantly do this again.

I looked extensively for a ranch to visit, but wanted to make the right choice in regards to animal welfare. I could not have made a better choice in Rancho Baxaal. This is not a typical 'tourist' ranch, which to me made it extra special. From the initial enquiry to the day of our trek, Steffi made us feel like... More

We were visiting the Playa area in May of 2014 for our anniversary and had the thought that a beach horseback ride would be fun. I have a decent amount of riding experience in my background, and my wife has very little. While... More

Sad that we were unable to do the moonlit ride as the full moon was after we left. These ladies only have their horses interests at heart, hence... More
