First and foremost all the horses at Rancho Baaxal are rescued which I love. There are so many mistreated animals out there that it's great to see a company really trying to help these wonderful animals. And they do take great care of all the animals. Even the rescued barn dogs Tigre, Maya & Chocolat who affectionately greeted us on... More

Amazing horse ride! Our emails from Steffi were prompt and written very well. We were the only 2 people on our trip which made it more special. We were complete beginners, and patricio was great at helping us!

My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon in Playa del Carmen. We wanted to do horseback riding since my wife used to show horses when she was younger. This place had the best reviews and they certainly lived up to our expectations. If you stay at Secrets Maroma Beach like we did then you can simply walk to... More

Nice relaxing ride on with friendly Mexicans! The horses were well cared for and very well trained. We got to gallop our horses on the beach, which was always a dream of mine. I definately would do this tour again. If you love horses, you'll really like this tour!!

When we got to the Ranch, Patrick met us and introduced us... More

Myself and my girlfriend rode on the 2nd September and opted for an afternoon ride. We arranged a pick up through Steffi, who was extremely helpful in booking things, even though we were in Mexico at the time. Once we got to the ranch, we met Patrick who is originally Argentinian but speaks great English. He was extremely friendly and... More

My boyfriend and I went on a morning ride with Steffi and it was an unforgettable experience! We had Cubano and Chilango, who are both very sweet and easy to ride horses. The riding tour of the jungle and beach was so amazing and I loved hearing about the ranch and each of the horses personalities. It was so nice... More
