About Bonanza Ranch
We offer a unique and exciting way for you to interact with the natural beauty of the Maya Riviera. At Bonanza Ranch, we only use healthy, well-trained horses, suitable for first-timers and intermediate riders.
Our tours are semi-private and consist of groups of up to 12 riders. This way, everyone receives personal attention from our friendly, knowledgeable guides. We are easy to find in Puerto Morelos on the outskirts of Cancun.
While on the riding trail, look out for various exotic species of birds, iguanas, butterflies and shy creatures such as spider monkeys and coatis. As you marvel at all the wondrous sights and sounds of nature, our guides provide an entertaining narrative along the trails. For example, you’ll pass through a local plantation and follow the path that leads you to visit a deep natural sinkhole. This is a common feature that you will only find in the Yucatan jungle. This resulted from the gradual erosion of limestone bedrock that now exposes groundwater underneath.
At the end of the ride, you will have an opportunity to take a refreshing swim in our open-air Cenote and enjoy some cool refreshments. Private tours can be offered for advanced riders upon request. We recommend that you bring bug spray, sunscreen, closed-toe shoes, a bathing suit & a towel. Be ready to enjoy a different way to spend your day. WIFI is available on site.
