The outing—perfect for nature lovers who appreciate a slower pace—highlights the natural wonders of the Yucatan peninsula and includes round trip transportation, horseback riding guide, and equipment, and water, snacks, and towels at the cenote.

What to Expect
This combo horseback riding and cenote tour begins with pickup from your hotel in Cancun or Playa del Carmen at the departure time chosen at checkout.  Once aboard the tour vehicle, you’re transported to Rancho Bonanza to meet your steed for the day’s ride. The horses here are rescues and matched with riders according to experience level. All riding levels can be accommodated. Over the next portion of the tour, descend into the Yucatan jungle, with a knowledgeable guide pointing out native flora and fauna along the way. The destination: a picturesque natural cenote, or naturally-occurring limestone sinkhole. Here, you can dismount and take a dip in the cool waters. Towels are provided, but wear a suit if you plan to swim. Enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks are your dip. Return to Rancho Bonanza to say goodbye to your horse and head back to your hotel.

We had a lovely horseback ride with very good instructions from Alma. On the ride through the path, we saw Spider Monkeys and iguanas, as well as various birds, all of which she pointed out and waited until we had each spotted them. The swim in the Cenote was very refreshing

My husband & I did the horseback trail ride/cenote swim in February 2020. It was a bit too cool to swim in the cenote, but the weather was perfect for riding. Most of the horses are rescues that have been rehabbed & they are obviously well-kept at the ranch. There were a
