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

We have just got back to our hotel after visiting Rancho Baaxal and had an amazing time. We are both animal lovers & could see that the staff there are too. The horses were very well looked after & so were the dogs. We loved that the dogs came to & sat with us when we had a short rest... More

I like this ranch because here the wellbeing of the horses comes first. I went with my husband, I have been riding for several years and my husband a couple of times. There was another couple with us. We rode in the jungle and along the beach, it was beautiful. In many ranches they let you gallop for extra price... More

We've just come back from our ride with Steffi and the other tour leader (I've forgotten her name soooooooo sorry) booking was super easy and Steffi had constant contact with me and my millions of emails containing millions more questions. We booked the ride as part of our honeymoon and so glad we did. The weather was not on our... More

Being a huge animal lover and advocate for humane treatment of them, I was happy to find Rancho Baxaal. The other places my travel agent wanted to book for me had horses that were not well cared for and were forced to be ridden several times a day. All of the things Rancho Baxaal does NOT do. Don't let your... More

I did some background reading on numerous ranches that provided the "riding on the beach" option. Rancho Baaxal not only has an amazing story behind it, but is one of the more reasonably priced considering the content and package options. My husband and I went during the morning ride (not as hot) with another couple from Germany. The tour guides... More

Riding on the beach and through jungle, nothing can beat this activity. You dont have to be an expert rider as even novices will enjoy this wonderful experience. The horses are all rescue horses, loved and happy horses make your experience all the more rewarding and each have their own story. Would definately recommend - I went twice and loved... More

I went on an afternoon ride with Steffi & Emily & had a fantastic time. I got paired with the gorgeous horse Rey. The hour & a half ride went quickly chatting with the ladies & winding your way through to stunning forest to Maroma beach. This has to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. I can't...
