Really great ride! Service was fabulous from start to finish - Steffi was VERY helpful from our very first contact. What makes this place awesome is that they REALLY care for their horses and their welfare. They are all rescue horses and have been rehabilitated from some heartbreaking conditions. Our guide was fun and made the trip interesting. Great day... More

My family and I had a wonderful evening with our guides under a full moon. The moon kept peeking in and out, and earlier there was the threat of rain, but we all enjoyed a peaceful ride through the jungle and onto the beach. We had a bon fire, sandwiches and beers. We would highly recommend this adventure.

The horses are sound and well taken care of, only six people at a time with three guides. Our experienced rider granddaughters had a blast and still talk about it two years later. If you want to ride the beach dream, go to Rancho Baaxal.

My now husband and I got married in Mexico on the 27th and were looking for something romantic to go and do, and I had wanted to go horseback riding anyway. He was able to discover Rancho Baxaal and we actually saved some money by booking directly through them. I spoke with Steffi through emails to make the arrangements and... More

My husband, 14 year old daughter and I went riding at Rancho Baaxal in April. The first thing we noticed was the fantastic condition of the horses! Our ride was just the three of us along with our two guides. We all enjoyed the ride through the jungle and the chance to lope on the beach! The guides are friendly... More

They were nothing but wonderful & first class from their first e-mail to our arrival back at the hotel. I contacted Lisa via e-mail to reserve a time for our ride and... More
