Great fun

We did this as an excursion during our visit on a NCL ship. It was very well run and very nice. It was a great time and worth the 30-40min bus ride.

Thanks to Matthew, our Cruise itinerary was changed & we visited Cozumel. We booked this excursion on the fly and it was wonderful. Carlos was our tour guide. He was super friendly as was everyone at the Ranch. They do require everyone wear helmets, which is great. The tour was very educational and our group enjoyed it. They did an... More

Clinton, our tour guide for the day, was brilliant. His jokes & entertaining stories kept everyone laughing as we travelled the 30ish minutes from the cruise ship port. And his knowledge & information was excellent. As a not very experienced horse rider, the brief but thorough explanation of steering & controlling our horse was the best I have ever heard.... More

My wife made the reservation and we decided to go in the morning before it got hot. We were the only ones there that morning, it was very peaceful and quiet. This was my wife's first ride, and she had a great time. The horses are very well taken care of and groomed and were a joy to ride, my... More

Amazing!!!! I am a animal lover and so pleased with the care the people of the ranch not only give there guest but the animals. For first time riders, no worries. You will be able to ride along on the trail on your own horse with no problem. They have horses for every experience level which is amazing. Our guide... More

We personally own a horse riding academy in the United states and rated this excursion based on our own personal experience as instructors whom offer trail rides similar to this one. I am very pleased with the way this excursion turned out. There were some people who knew how to ride and some who were very inexperienced. We, as instructors... More

Pato our excursion guide made the excursion a great one. Great guy to talk whether it's about the excursion or just talking in general. You can tell he really loves his job and it shows.

I found this ranch through a cruise excursion and it was one of the best excursions ever. The wrangler made us laugh so hard our jaws ached! The horses were gentle and the jungle was wild and beautiful. We heard a lot of Mayan culture, and spied many underground caves. You do not need to know how to ride to... More
