Horseback Riding on the Beach Near Playa del Carmen
Whether cameras are rolling or not, there is something magical about riding horses on one of the most beautiful and undeveloped coastlines in the world.
Rancho Baaxal. This horse ranch considers itself a non-commercial slice of paradise where customers are treated like friends. So are the horses for that matter. You can book private tours or join with others for 1.5 hour tours that span both the beautiful tropical junglescapes as well as the beach.
Cozumel Cruise Excursions. Cozumel Cruise Excursions contracts with a local hacienda to provide small horseback riding tours (no more than 12 riders per group) just 15 minutes away from the Ferry terminal. Riders enjoy a seaside trail ride meandering in and out of the jungle, leading down to the beach. A second package allows riders to snorkel on a private beach before heading back up the trail.
Rancho Bonanza. Rancho Bonanza has received multiple awards for its eco-approach to ranching and its contributions to the area’s tourist industry. They specialize in horseback riding tours for novice riders, and tours include a visit to beautiful cenotes where riders can hop off and enjoy a refreshing swim.
