We had a great time at Rancho Baaxal. We had riders of varying degrees of experience and the staff catered to us all individually allowing the experienced riders to let loose a little bit while the others rode at a comfortable pace. The horses are very well looked after and the staff obviously care a lot for their animals. Would... More

All with all great!! The horses are in good condition, the men working there are very friendly. Even the dogs went with us in the jungle. We had a great time! One with the nature, we really relaxed!

My mom and I rode with Rancho Baxxal back in Aug 2016 (I can't believe I forgot to review them!) I took my mom who is an accomplished rider for her birthday. We had the greatest time. I am an advanced rider and they were able to accommodate all levels within our group (beginner to advanced). While I was initially... More

This is a great little place. All of their horses are rescues, and the people that work there are knowledgeable and caring for you and the horses. Recent law changes mean you can't ride on the beach any more, and they recently relocated, so make sure that your taxi takes you to the right place. I haven't done this much,... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my ride at Rancho Baxaal, thank you to Pancho the gorgeous dun/buckskin horse I rode and our guide who was very knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna - something I am also very interested in. I chose Rancho Baxaal based on the good and caring work they do for the horses that have experienced the worst... More

They take excellent care of the horses who are all rescues and take the time to pair you with a suitable mount. They also cater to your ability. The ride going out was all walking but got to do some nice long canters on the way back in. Would highly recommend.

This one of a kind horse ride was simply stunning. We had a chance to see bats (don't ask), birds and other animals you rarely see in cities. The guides were extremely kind and welcoming while their many dogs and horses were adorable (one of the dogs followed us half of the way back to our hotel!) All in all... More

My teenage daughter and I enjoyed a lovely trail ride through the jungle to Maroma Beach last July 2015. I understand the ranch may have moved since then and no longer offers the beach ride but I'm sure it's still a wonderful experience. I was impressed by how well the horses are cared for. The owners are passionate about ensuring... More

We have just got back from our ride at Rancho Baaxal and have to say it was such an amazing experience. For starters me and my boyfriend had a private ride with two of the ranch workers which made the experience even more amazing than a massive organised excursion with many other riders. All of the horses are rescue horses,... More
