What to Expect
This adventure is a nice combo if you want to learn how the Mayan people used to live, which Gods they used to venerate and also how they were seeing life back then. Back in the days, the Mayan civilization was very strong, they had a lot of skills in astronomy, mathematics (they even invented the number zero) and they had great warriors. You will be able to see nice Mayan ruins and several caverns.

The adventure begins when we pick you up at your respective meeting point with a comfortable ground a/c transportation. Once there, our experimented guides will brief you about the basic rules about how to ride a horse and for the ones with more experience just a normal refresh. Everyone will be match with a horse that correspond with their previous horseback riding experience, then you will enter the Mystic land of the Mayan civilization.

Come on down cowboys and cowgirls! The well-known ranch Buena Vista is waiting for you, located in the Hacienda Santa Emilia on the east side of the beautiful Cozumel Island, with more than 14 years in the horseback riding industry, you can’t go wrong!

Well cowboys and cowgirls, The Ranch is waiting for you…Yeee-Haw!
