I found out about Rancho Baaxal here on tripadvisor and decided to book for my partners 50th birthday treat (not knowing he had never been on horseback before) Steffi and Cecile were welcoming and very understanding as I was feeling nervous they gave me "everyone's favourite" to ride. We rode through the jungle accompanied by one of their very lovely... More

The review titled: “Great Experience” Reviewed October 5, 2014 is right on with their description. I did this day ride with Steff and Lisa (Lisa is the owner) and had a blast. I also did the full moon ride a couple nights before. They only do it 3 nights a month, weather permitting. As an experienced rider, who has done... More

I was looking to go riding whilst in Mexico and looked at Trip Advisor for a good place to go. After reading the reviews I decided to contact the ranch by email and arranged for a Saturday morning ride. The ride was fabulous and cannot praise the staff at the ranch enough. As it happened, my sister and I were... More

This tour did not disappoint in any way. We were fortunate enough to get two amazing guides - steffi and luna. They had such an amazing connection with the horses and made the tour such a pleasant experience. The ride through the jungle is so peaceful and to the emerge into an undeveloped beach with such beautiful water is magical.... More

The stables are tucked away in a beautiful area, so bring a camera. As a foursome we had a great private ride. Since 3 of us had limited experience on horses, I was worried that we would hold our experienced rider back, but fortunately our guides tailored the ride to each of our experience levels. Even the horses were matched... More

After struggling to find a stables where I could book a private ride (no help from the reps the only horse riding they could offer was walk and trot and if I wanted a private ride I had to pay for 10 people), my daughter found Rancho Baaxal. My sister and I had a great time Steffi is absolutely wonderful,... More

We booked a few other trips while staying in Playa del Carmen, including snorkeling and tours around the islands and this was by far our favorite experience. We were so happy to have an experience that wasn't like an amusement park and was clear that the horses were so well treated. Having booked several horseback riding trips while traveling (abroad...

My boyfriend and I visited Racho Baaxal over our vacation in Cancun Riviera. The ranch was fairly easy to find thanks to great instructions by Steffi, our guide. I used to ride a lot when I was a kid and my boyfriend had also ridden but Steffi ensured we kept ourselves (and our horses) safe. I had only ever experienced... More

I visited Rancho Baaxal in late August and had a wonderful ride. Steffi was a fantastic host and our group had a lot of fun. The ranch caters for all levels of experience. The horses are all very well cared for and good natured. Perfect day!

I visited Rancho Baaxal while traveling with a friend during the last week of July 2014. If you care about horses and want a truly wonderful experience - this is the place to be! I would definitely go back again. It is a little off the beaten path, but easily accessible via taxi - just print the directions ahead of... More
