Horseback riding on the beach for TWO!!! Just our luck we were the only two to book for an early afternoon ride, which made our ride on the beach very private and more special! The guide made us very comfortable and was full of information and extremely funny. I hadn't been on a horse in quite sometime and it was indeed a first for my companion. We both did well and would love to do it again in the near future!

Amazing. I love horseback riding. The horses were pretty small though so it felt more like a pony. The beach we went to was great as well and swimming with the horses was awesome because we got to ride bareback. Would do it again.

Horseback riding was fun! Even if you're a beginner, don't be alarmed. They will ensure you get a beginner horse and they will not go fast. We had quite a few advanced riders so they got an advanced horse so they do pair you up acccordingly. We rode throughout the jungle for over an hour. Some people were ready to go home and felt it was too long but BF and I didn't mind. We enjoyed it. We did have to wait an hour for a ride back to the hotel. That wasn't ideal time spent but they do have snacks and drinks while you wait so it wasn't too bad. Overall, I think it's a fun thing to do while on vaca. When else would you get the time to do it otherwise? IMO - Jeans and sneakers is the best attire as it can get pretty rough on your thighs if you don't ride regularly (think cowboys). Sunblock, hat, and mosquito repellent is a good bet. Enjoy.

As advertised. Almost two hours in saddle. Not too much beach exposure but enjoyable.

The horse riding was great. It was the first time my partner has ridden a horse and he was a natural. The scenery was lovely as well. My only complaint was that my horse was super stubborn and didn't want to participate so was lead throughout the whole ride. The stables should have given me a different horse so I wasn't the only one who wasn't riding solo.

The trip itself was enjoyable, and I would recommend horseback riding in Cancun. Unfortunately, the information given about pickup points was incorrect, and the cafe we were meant to meet outside of has not existed for over two years. I think Viator needs to update the confirmation schedule and also the website. Also, despite confirming the trip, the ranch had no details of my booking, and over half an hour was wasted making a series of phone calls to rectify this problem. Stressful to say the least!!!!

Very friendly guides. Beautiful trail and beach. Beautiful horses. We loved it! Food at the end of the tour needs improvement and variety, but the tour is definitely worth doing anyway.

My kids enjoyed it and it was a first for my husband. The horses are tame and tour guides are pleasant.

3 star rating: Worth doing

We had a great experience. No one fell off their horse. However, we did not get to ride horse for 2 hours, it was more like an hour and a half. We did not get to go into the water with the horses and we were on the beach no more than half an hour. If it wasn't for the friendly wranglers and the love of horses, I would have been disappointed.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

Very disappointing. It was described as ride through thecjungle and ON the beach. Woods and nearby the beach would be more fitting. Not recommended if you truly want to ride on the beach.
