Many of our visitors have asked about horseback riding in the Riviera Maya.

Horseback riding is usually an ideal activity for holidays. Not many companies in this area provide this service. However, we recently found a place that provides excellent service and is respectful of the horses.

Baaxal Ranch is kind of hidden in the middle of the jungle, like most of the great things in Riviera Maya. It is almost as if they try to keep this incredible experience secret, to protect the magic of the place and animals that live there. We are fortunate to know some of the staff and managed to book a few customers, who came back with the best reviews.

Perfect Location

Horse riding

Baaxal Ranch is not your typical horseback ride since the area is not on the beach.  But trust us, it is just as wonderful.

Featuring majestic trees and plants that create an exotic surrounding, the trail provides a private and peaceful encounter with nature. It is a perfect anecdote to stress.

Away from the noise and the crowded places, it is also an ideal setting for a romantic afternoon. This is also perfect if you are considering a horseback ride for a wedding proposal, anniversary celebration, birthday surprise, etc. No pressure here, we are just throwing some ideas in. But please know that if you are celebrating a special occasion, this might be the perfect option. This jungle paradise is located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, so not a problem with privacy and quietness. Transportation can be arranged from any parts of Cancun, Playa del Carmen or even Tulum.

Different Ways To Enjoy Your Visit

What we absolutely love about Baaxal Ranch is the importance they have on their horses.

Like any eco-friendly place, the priority always has to be animals and surroundings. They treat them like family, making sure they stay in great condition and perfect health. Their treatment of the horses is reflected in their amazing tours and services for the visitors. The more love and respect the staff shows to the animals, the more you can be sure that you will have a fun and exciting experience with them.

Tours are provided at 9:30am, 12:00pm (noon) and 3:00pm. During the warmest months, some tours at noon are canceled due to the extreme heat and in order to protect the horses from any heatstroke. For any early tour, coffee and pastries are included. If you opt for an afternoon trip you will enjoy a nice cold beer or a glass of wine with some snacks.

Each trip has a maximum of six riders, making it almost private and guaranteeing with this a more personalized service. The tour lasts for about 1.5 hours exploring the beautiful land.

Do you need something more private or unique? Depending on the season it is possible to arrange rides under the moonlight, in the afternoon or private with a minimum of two people. The rate for a private ride goes from $40.00 usd and up, per person. The snacks and drinks can also be changed upon request at a different rate. Pretty much anything can be done if you make your reservation with enough time of advance.
