This was a great time! The beach where they are is beautiful. The horses are beautiful! The path is not too long and not too short. There is a small portion where you walk on the white sand where you can see the beach. The staff there is great and very friendly as well as helpful. Highly recommend it if you like doing outdoorsy activities. It is very beautiful.
OMG, I love this place!!! The tour was awesome!! This was my first time running a horse and I enjoyed it. The horses are well taken care of and well mannered! The guide was great and funny!
This was the best horseback ride ever... Horseback riding through the jungle was serenity. The instructors were amazing. Everybody was friendly.
This is a very hard one to rate. The people who conduct the horseback riding part were excellent. Very knowledgeable and patient. My teenage sons and I felt very safe, and we have only been on horseback a few times. The horses are beautiful and kind. However, if you are going because you want to see sites along the way, you may be disappointed. Yes, you do go through the jungle, but on a well-worn path, and there isn't much to see. You will go on the beach, but only for about 15 minutes of the hour and a half that you are on horseback.
I appreciate that these people and the horses work hard at what they do. The lead guide was very friendly and made sure that everyone was comfortable and doing well. There were quite a few children on the ride, and they all enjoyed it. I would recommend the tour if you have young children. I just don't know what to say about there being little to see. I give this four stars solely based on the people and horses that gave us the tour.
- The description for the tour said there was nowhere to change in order to go swimming afterwards. This wasn't the case. The place you will be taken - about 40 minutes from our hotel - is very accommodating. There are bathrooms, showers and lockers for your stuff.
- Because quite a few other people on the tour arrived late, we got a later start than I would have liked. We were told we would head over to the horses about noon, but stragglers kept coming in well after that time, and we had to wait for them. Not the tour's fault. So, we got on the horses about 12:45 pm and rode until about 2:15 pm. Once we got everyone off the horses and back to the restaurant, we only had 20 minutes until our ride came to pick us up at 3 pm. There was no time to swim or do anything else.
- The snack included in the tour was chips, salsa and black beans. Very good. It also includes soda, but make sure you ask for that without ice if you are trying to avoid drinking the water! If we had more time, we could have gone ahead and paid for lunch there - it is a restaurant. But again, there was no time.
- If you want a simple, peaceful adventure - especially if you have young children - this is a nice little trip.
Although we are pretty sure we were taken to the WRONG horseback riding excursion, Nina and her staff were amazing. We had to contact Olympus Tours 3 times and we were still taken to wrong one. Four goes to the staff to where we were taken. 0 stars for wrong trip
I recently vacationed in Rivera Maya and took the horse back riding tour. The people are so friendly and I loved the singing of the one gentlemen as we strolled along the trail. I was hoping we would ride directly on the beach but we didn't. Other than that I enjoyed my time spent here.
This was my first time doing horseback riding and I never felt scared! It was a great experience.
A very enjoyable ride ,plus lots of local information about the environment.A cooling swim at the end of the ride completed a great experience.
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 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 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.
