I am an equestrian, first and foremost. Treatment of the horses is my main concern when riding anywhere. Steffi and the staff at Rancho Baaxal were amazing. It may have been either good luck or good timing, but I ended up riding with a group of vacationers that were all experienced horse people. The horses are extremely well cared for... More

And your experience is completely customizable with private tours offering even more flexibility including a private picnic etc. Special thanks to Emily, Cecile, and Steffi for making this a great experience, especially for those of...

Rancho Baaxal where each and every animal has been rescued. Such a beautiful concept and the kind of people I want to support with my business!! So let me start by saying that I've been a competitive rider for over 20 years. And with all this experience under my belt, I can tell you that what these women are doing... More

We visited their new location which is still a work in progress. The horses are well cared for and it was such a joy to ride them and visit the ranch. We chose this option because it's important to us to only support operations that don't exploit animals (eg riding dolphins living in captivity for commercial purposes). If you're looking... More

The staff made our day! So much fun. And loved that all the horses are rescued by the owner and treated like royalty. Can not wait to go back

Awesome ride! Staffs are great at taking care of the horses! The trial is very easy. For a 1 year beginning adult rider I got the excellent experience I wanted. They have great horses and very clam and easy to control. If you are experienced rider and would love to canter, this is the place to do it. The cute... More

Rancho Baaxal are lovely people with lovely horses, doing a great job to show how it should be done. Met Steffi, Emily and Indio, welfare of horses in all respects a priority. Lovely ride through jungle and by the beach with super informed commentary from Steffi about the ride and the environment. Best wishes for the new location, you're different... More

We visited Rancho Baaxal last week and it was one of the best experience ever! Knowing that we visited place where they help animals by rescuing them and offering peaceful retirement. When you listen to each horse story you will be shocked how people can do that. The Girls who were guiding us through the jungle and then beach were... More

My wife and I booked the full moon horse back ride with Rancho Baxaal on October 27th for our 25th Wedding anniversary. What an amazing experience! The staff was very attentive, and made sure everyone was extremely comfortable with the horses before setting out on the ride. They matched each person to the horse based on the rider's experience, so... More

Excellent ride thru jungle and on beach. Guides are fun and horses are healthy and happy. Great for all levels - I got a chance to canter on the beach while my husband waited nearby.
