Well taken care of horses and nice ride.

We are riders with very little horse riding experience, but they offer several levels of experience to suit your ability. Their horses were very well taken care of and well fed... read more

my daughter desperately wanted to go horseback riding so I paid the 75 dollar deposit for the two of us and made a reservation for the next day. She made a little friend that afternoon and we sent an email to RB requesting that the girls be able to ride together. RB responded saying that they couldn't accommodate us the... More

We did a horseback riding tour with our two kids, ages 11 and 13. The staff was *amazing* - super responsive via email and even better in person. They were ready for us as soon as we arrived, and gave us a full history of each of the horses we would be riding -their personalities, where they came from, how... More

We are riders with very little horse riding experience, but they offer several levels of experience to suit your ability. Their horses were very well taken care of and well fed. The ride was through the jungle (you are not allowed to ride horses on the beach in Quinta Roo) on a small path that has lots of tree cover... More

We recently booked a horseback riding adventure at Maroma and had an incredible time. Our guide Joel was superb and he really made the experience worth while. I definitely recommend booking this and without a doubt you should ask for Joel

My husband and I try to be conscious travelers, and, to be honest, were a bit skeptical of what I thought was a gimmick - a place advertising as a rescue to get more people in. We booked it anyway, as I love horses and I love riding and wanted to see what they were all about. I am so... More

My sister and I booked a trail ride here in November for my stagette. Before I booked I knew I didn't want to ride tiny scrawny horses , nor support that kind of tourism and I didn't want a ride with a crap tone of people. Lisa and her ranch did not disappoint. The horses are all rescues and well... More

There were four of us (all adults) and two guides. I am a horse lover and really did not know what to expect. We did the deluxe ride, where we stopped at an area and had a huge cheese, crackers, fruit and jelly tray & wine, it was all wonderful, displayed very nice and a nice stop. The ride was... More

This was most definitely one of my most memorable romantic experiences I've had. I had this cheese/cold cut plate with fresh fruit and SANGRIA!!! They did EVERYTHING exactly as I requested plus some. I was a bit worried of the outcome as I wasn't expecting this level of attention to detail. I surprised my lady with a candle lit picnic... More

I always research before I use any animal activities while on holiday, I chose Rancho Baaxal because they seemed to really care for their horses and made them a priority and this was evident when we arrived there. All the animals, dogs and horses are rescued and in really well cared for, money is put into caring for the animals... More
