Owner description: The Yaxmuul horseback riding tour is a great tour. We have 20 horses.The tour starts a short distance from the main highway between Cancun and Tulum. Once you have been greeted you will be introduced to the horses, and safety instructions will be reviewed. You will then be mounted onto the horses one by one.You will then ride through the jungle in a single file line, following the guide. You will ride for about 40 to 45 minutes through the lush green jungle until you arrive at the main palapa. Here you will have access to clean restrooms, refreshments, and hammocks to relax in. Once everyone is ready to swim you will be escorted into the amazing hidden cenote underground.You will have ample time to swim and explore the amazing cenote, taking in all its beauty. Life jackets, snorkel gear and lighting are provided. Once you have had enough time to enjoy the underground world, you would then head back up to the main palapa, At the palapa you will be served a meal.And finally we will go back to the entrance by horse.

We really enjoyed this. The horses were easy to manage and seemed to like a couple of girls riding them in bikinis. We enjoyed it because the sun was shining and the ocean breezes in our hair made us feel free and in another world. While you may not want to ride in a bikini, I highly recommend Yaxmuul !!!

The horses seemed bored, but my husband and I were perfectly happy and excited by the sights and opportunity to hold hands on horseback. Best to know some Spanish when talking with the wranglers about which "sire" you should be riding :-)

We are so happy that we decided to go on this tour. Celia was so accommodating when I forgot to tell her that I am a vegetarian, and the meal they prepared was beautiful and delicious. Honorio was a kind and excellent guide; very sensitive to our needs. We enjoyed looking at the animals (goats, ducks, horses, dogs, chickens, a... More
