Great tour and tour guides. It's a bit of a hidden ranch - very authentic and beautiful. The horses are well treated and they are the priority over tourists. All rescue horses, but gentle and well cared for. Steffi was a delight - a real animal lover and very welcoming, personable and amicable. Her English is also very good if... More

My 16 year old riding fanatic daughter had always wanted to ride along the coast. The location of Rancho Baaxal and the brilliant staff enabled her dream to come true. Steffi and the gang were great. The horses were well cared for and their well being and our safety was a priority. It was really easy to book the ride... More

If it is, you can't go wrong by visiting Rancho Baaxal. My wife worked with her sister who is a horse vet and was always reluctant to go horse back riding in the Mexico as she felt the horses were mistreated. Nothing could be further from the truth at Rancho Baaxal. Communication was clear and precise. The arrangement of the... More

Our morning ride here was the highlight of our trip to Mexico. Everything was very easy to arrange from the UK and we were made to feel very welcome by Steffi. Our family of four,with different riding abilities, all enjoyed the ride and Steffi went out of her way to make it a really special experience. Highly recommended to anyone... More

Steffi took great care of us during the visit and made us feel both welcome and relaxed in the saddle.

We went horseback riding in the End of May on the Earliest tour. We ending up going with another couple so all together it was 6 of us that included the two guides, which one of the guides was Steffi who I think made the entire tour worth it. She was kind, helpful, fun and very knowledgeable about the land... More

We travelled to the ranch as a couple in June. We went on a beautiful morning ride with Steffi and Lalo, and despite booking a standard tour we ended up being the only two on the ride. We rode Indio and Pantera who were great horses for complete beginners like ourselves. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly... More

We had a family trip booked today with this organisation, our abilities were very varied to say the least. None the less we arrived at the Ranch and were given a really warm welcome by the team. We were given a quick safety briefing, assigned our horses etc then off we trotted. We first walked down a gentle sandy path.... More

Excellent full moon tour. Paid for the group rate but we were the only couple on the ride so we ended up with a private tour. The full moon was beautiful and lit the jungle and beach. Our tour guide was a beautiful young Mexican girl (sorry don't remember her name) who spoke excellent English and was very informative about... More

The most amazing horse back ridding experience I have ever had the chance to be a part of! Steffi and Lisa are some very special people with very big hearts that love and care for horses that have either had terrible lives in the past or even to the extent of near death from poor treatment! If you love and... More
