Tour Details

The excitement of your interactive journey begins as you board an open-air bus for a picturesque ride out to Hacienda Santa Emilia, a private horseback riding ranch on the eastern side of Cozumel.

This small excursion is perfect for beginner and experienced riders alike as your guides will give you detailed riding instructions then expertly match you with a horse that meets your personal level of riding experience.

You and your guides will leave the ranch behind as you make your way through the scenic jungle trails filled with Mayan ruins and deep caverns.

Throughout the ride you will learn about the Mayan people and culture, the Gods they worshiped and their way of life. Hear fascinating stories and facts of the Mayans including how this strong community of great warriors invented the number zero and were accomplished astronomers.

Upon your return to the Hacienda you will say goodbye to your four-footed friend and make your way to Ecolounge Beach for a little beach time before returning to the port and your ship.

Book this half-day tour today and get ready to experience the native and natural side of Cozumel up close.

The tour was great! The guide and his staff was excellent! Some of the horses looked like they needed a good vacation! The place we ate lunch at was so good! I just thought we needed a little more time there! I would definitely recommend this tour!

Reviewer: Max Litwin
This is a must for anyone interested in seeing the beauty of the area. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable, and the horse ride allows you to better experience the scenery without the noise of motors or vehicles. Highly recommend!

5 StarsGreat guide and he picked horses perfectly!August 30, 2018

Reviewer: Melanie Bittinger
Our guide was an experienced rider who easily matched the horses with the experience of the riders. The ranch that the ruins is on is huge and amazing! So many ruins on a privately-owned ranch is rare and the guide knew all about the underground caves being tunnels--escape routes and what they found in the caves, etc.. GREAT and HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

We reallly enjoyed our horseback ride. Carlos was an awsome trainer. He did have patien c e with us first time riders plus he was attentive with advance riders that were in our group. The beqch access was a disappointment because the kids and afults thought we wetr going to be able to get in the water but where it was at it was not possible. They should change it just to beach front relaxation with no access.

Reviewer: Lora Cotton
This was the enjoyable trip. My husband always wanted to go horse back riding and I choose this as a surprise excursion he was so excited. The people st the ranch were great. The horses were beautiful and so well trained if you’ve never rode a horse before I say take this tour in Couzumel. The guide was really great. Loved my horse Marilla. 😎
