We spent day in Cozumel at Rancho Buenavista with Carlos. The ranch was beautifully kept and the horses were incredibly sweet and well mannered. We did bring bug spray but we did not experience too many mosquitoes. On the way back to the cruise ship,...More

Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Horses are well cared for and gentle. It took little to no effort to ride, and we’ve only ridden a handful of times before. Beautiful facility with places to lounge while you wait and clean bathrooms. Would go again.

Jorge and Carlos were great guides. Even though I have spent many years on off-road motorcycles I have only ridden a horse once before and their instruction was very helpful. After a few minutes me and Luna were doing well together on the trails to...More

The riding would have been wonderful if it hadn't poured rain on us. I'm a very experienced rider and even I enjoyed the riding because it isn't nose to tail if you have some experience. They let you trot and try to group you with...More

The white sand beaches are amazing as you look out to turquoise waters, but we could not swim because the waves were very high and under toe was severe.

The horseback riding portion of the trip was very good. Carlos met us at the cruise pier and transported us by bus to the ranch. Each rider in the group (approx 20) was matched to a horse and assisted onto the saddle. Basic instructions were...More
