My teenage daughter and I enjoyed a lovely trail ride through the jungle to Maroma Beach last July 2015. I understand the ranch may have moved since then and no longer offers the beach ride but I'm sure it's still a wonderful experience. I was impressed by how well the horses are cared for. The owners are passionate about ensuring... More

We have just got back from our ride at Rancho Baaxal and have to say it was such an amazing experience. For starters me and my boyfriend had a private ride with two of the ranch workers which made the experience even more amazing than a massive organised excursion with many other riders. All of the horses are rescue horses,... More

Me and My girlfriend booked this due to the glowing reviews it received on TripAdvisor and I can easily say we weren't disappointed! Do not think about going anywhere else for horse riding in Riviera Maya, this won't be beaten! The horses are well looked after, have amazing stables and people that truly care about making sure they have the... More

I wanted to surprise my child with an excursion away from the AI we were staying at. She loves horses so I started to research and luckily I found Baaxal. She enjoyed it so much and had tears in her eyes when she realized where she was going as we pulled up to the ranch and she could see the... More

As someone who loves horses and has a good amount of riding experience I always try to book some sort of horseback riding adventure when on vacation. I had heard excellent things about Rancho Baaxal but was a little nervous because I was going with my sister who has only ridden once or twice. We decided to book a private... More

My family and I -- who ride on a regular basis -- went on a trail ride with Rancho Baaxal in June, and were very impressed with the ride leaders, terrain, how well cared for the horses were. Our guides chose horses that were appropriate for our skill level, and size/weight, and made sure we were comfortable throughout our adventure.... More

It's noticeable how well treated the horses were, and they're also very calm and easy to handle. Our guide, Eduardo, was very friendly and made the tour even better. I'm mostly a beginner with horses but I have some experience trotting and galloping, and I missed a little bit of action in the tour. I felt I should have said... More

Hello readers! Rancho Baaxal was definitely the highlight of my trip when I spent ten days in Playa Del Carmen. I am a people and horse lover with adventure in my veins and if this sounds like you, then Rancho Baaxal is the place for you. First off, one challenging thing to my experience was that it was a struggled... More

We visited Rancho Baaxal for the first time and it was a wonderful experience. Steffi and Lisa were such gracious hosts and you could really feel how much they love their animals and truly care for them. All 13 horses were rescued from neglectful situations and both women work hard to help support the animals. They not only help rescue... More

Rancho Baaxal is run by a group of women who truly care for their horses. They take us through a jungle trail and we ended with a hike which included some cenotes. If you are comfortable on a horse they let you have a bit of freedom on the trail (I got to canter with mine) but they are very... More
