Photo of the Week: Horse Riding on the Beach image

This week we went horse riding with Rancho Baaxal, a small stables hidden in the jungle 20 minutes outside of Playa del Carmen. We’ll be writing more about this wonderful place in the next few weeks but for now here’s my horse Rey looking out at the beautiful Caribbean Sea after we emerged from the narrow jungle path onto the white sandy beach.

  1. Perfect, have just emailed them to see if we can get a booking while we’re there. Always a bit wary of overseas riding after a few dodgy experiences but that stables looks lovely!


    • That’s great Kate. It is awful when you go riding abroad and find out the horses are badly treated. Luckily Rancho Baaxal is one of the good ones. Have a great ride!


  2. I’ve been here and ridden horses (maybe on that beach!) This was the trip we took in 2006 when we decided to take our family to explore the world! 11 countries, 6 years and 5 kids later, we’ve never regretted going nomad :)
