This was a great ride through the jungle and onto the beach. The horses were great, and the people were amazing. These people truly care about the animals. They rescue horses, each one has a special story and its own set of challenges its had to overcome to finally reside in a caring and loving environment. I fully recommend this.... More

Our two daughters are horse mad and ride regularly. On our trip to Mexico we were looking for an activity we could all do together. We found Rancho Baxaal in our search and the reviews were very good. Once we got to Mexico we looked at some of the other trips on offer but saw that they were very commercial.... More

Our daughter Floor wanted a horse ride on the beach and on the internet we found this ranch. It's a project to help horses which are neglected to get a better life. The small ranch has 15 horses and always the horse first. The location is amazing in the middle of the jungle close to the beach. Floor made an... More

Had a wonderful ride. The staff is very attentive to your whole experience, even before you arrive. Their hidden beach jungle is definitely off the beaten path, but the instructions to find it were very well laid out. If you get the retired race horse, be sure to know what you're doing before you run it!

I did a lot of research to find a ranch who cared for their horses more than their money and this was clearly the place. Each horse's temperament and riding level was explained prior to the ride and held true for the entire ride. The horses knew their job and listened well even though they were being "opportunistic eaters" they... More

I booked this through Steffie as I had done a lot of research on horseback riding for our vacation. My daughter and I both own horses and I told her we would only go if I could find a place where the horses were treated well....and this place was perfect! The love and care that the horses here receive are... More

We had a fantastic time at Rancho Baaxal! Although Rancho Baaxal is a bit more expensive than some of the other horseback riding options in the area, it's worth it. Steffi and Lisa were our tour guides and they were both wonderful: knowledgeable, reassuring, and really fun to be with. Most importantly, the staff clearly cares deeply about the horses,... More

It was our first time riding a horse and it was through a jungle! Quite the amazing experience! Stefi and Lisa were great tour guides as they led us through the jungle and into the beach. This is definitely something you should do while staying in Mexico!

We booked a private tour with Rancho Baxxal and loved it. This was the 1st time in quite a while that my wife had gotten back on a horse and she loved every second of her ride along the beach. Everyone there was so helpful and nice, and it was cute that the dogs tag along for the whole journey.... More

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.
