This is a lovely place, the horses are well look after, the riding is excellent for novice riders. I cannot recommend this trip enough
My girlfriend likes to ride horses but I am a bit nervous around them, we went to the Bonanza to ride the horses and this was my first time. The staff were great with teaching me the basics and reassuring me before we set off and we rode through the jungle. I enjoyed something that I didn't think was possible, we stopped and learned about the cenotes and how they connect to the underground river system before going back and having a snack and cooling off with a swim in another cenote.
We bought our photos as they were very well priced compared to many other attractions that rip you off and then they arrange your transport for you to go back to your hotel.
This ranch also rescues horses, donkeys, goats, pigs and dogs that have been abused so these guys are doing a great job looking after and caring for them so they get a thumbs up for that also.
This is the second time I have done this. Both have been great experience.
Brilliant tour well above expectations learnt lots about riding and the staff were tremendous would highly recommend for anyone especially beginners

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.
This is great for beginners. I'm not an experience rider to say the least and I was a little nervous. I was given instructions and we got the chance to practice a little before heading out. I enjoyed the ride which took about an hour and a half. Then after wards had the option to swim in the cenote. You are able to bring your cell phone for pictures but it was very difficult to do. Unless you have a shirt pocket I would just leave it in the locker which they provide. They have a photographer to take photos. It is pricey 30 for several shots but the photos I took were horrible so I bought pictures. The horses on the ranch are rescue horses and I was more than willing to pay for pictures and have my money go to this tour. If you are an experience rider this isn't for you. Insect repellent is a must. I had a fun time.
This was a great tour if you like riding horseback. Our shuttle got us there late and we felt bad because the rest of the group had been waiting for 30 mins. No beach time with the horses but the forest and wildlife areas were awesome anyway. My wife's horse and mine were both a little skiddish but I think that was because we were the youngest and most energetic people on the tour, so they gave us matching horses. Overall great excursion, I would do it again.
I really enjoyed this tour. This was my first time riding horseback and they did a good job of matching you up with a horse that reflected your skill level. Pictures are also available after the tour and we purchased 1. I would recommend!
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.
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.
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.
