Horse riding beginners - guides very helpful and patient. Horses beautiful and obviously very well looked after. Thoroughly enjoyed a trek through the jungle and down to the ocean front. Stopped for photo opportunity. Brilliant. Would highly recommend.

We stumbled across this by chance, as they do not advertise widely and pride themselves on their secrecy, but it was a fantastic find! The ranch is secluded and the horses are obviously very well looked after by the staff; Steffi was our guide and she was brilliant at giving is directions to the place and was swift at replying...

Came here over a year ago and what an experience. Amazing horses that are very safe and you go at your own pace. No pressure to gallop if not as I didn't want to but my friend did. Excellent knowledge from guides about the history and area. Horses are well cared for and lovely stories about their rescue. Views and... More

We had 6 family members of all ages (51, 50, 17,16,14,13) on our ride. Everyone loved it! It was a little tame for the young men in our group, but since they were novice riders, as their mother, I was happy with the pace of the horses. The beaches we came upon after riding in the jungle were gorgeous. We... More

We were looking for something a bit different to do with our 10 and 11 year old boys on our recent trip to Mexico, and decided to check out Rancho Baaxal based on the reviews on Trip Advisor, and their mission to save and rescue horses. We were not disappointed! The horses are well taken care of, the staff were... More

The horses are in really good shape, also they're very well trained so easy to ride. There are two guides so everyone gets enough attention and help when in need. Besides the horseriding Steffi knows a lot about the environment and is full of stories. I had a great time! Thanks!

Me and my wife visited here back in 2009. We had a great time, I hadn't every been horse riding before. The staff were really friendly and horses were well looked after. We went on a day tour through the jungle down to the beach and had a chill out with an ice drink in the shade as it was... More

The workers are so sweet and really care about the horses! The horses are their first priority and should be for any true horse lover! First you get to ride through the jungle then on the beach, the only place to actually ride on the beach still since it is on private property. They offer something for all experience levels...

Beautiful horses cared for by people with a true love for the animals and nature. If you're looking for a horseback experience while in Playa, Rancho Baaxal is a must!

It was always my dream to ride a horse on the beach. White sand, crystal blue water, sun and chilled layback people. What else would you wish for on a dream vacation? It was a surprise, my boyfriend booked his trip and I did not even know where we were going. Very friendly people. Professionals, they made sure we were... More
