Esmeralda and her team were amazing. They were very helpful and knowledgeable. Esmeralda had some great legends about the local fauna. Can't forget the cenote either. It was beautiful and a great refresher after the horseback riding.

The tour guides were very enthusiastic, talkative and very knowledgeable of the horses, Cenote, and Mayan culture. The horses were very well taken care of and followed instructions nicely. After swimming, we refreshed with Coca-Cola and Mexican chocolate. Would come back again!

Beautiful area, safe horses and workers. Each of them is caring and knows what to do.

VERY caring folks. The site is part of a resort maybe an hour out of Cancun. Horses and saddles are in great shape. I'm the one rider that had a terrible pain in replaced hip. Within 15 minutes or less I knew I had to get off the horse. The pain caused me to feel dizzy and as if I would pass out. I happened to be the only guest on the ride. They had me off the horse quickly and brought a vehicle to drive me back to the main area. I will see my hip surgeon - but I think this was my last attempt to ride. As a younger person I rode in rodeos. Sad for me - but if you want an excellent experience - Bonanza is your best choice.

Ranch Bonanza is the Best! You should go

The crew at Rancho Bonanza were great! It was great and welcoming experience and enjoyed every minute of riding the horses through the nice trail while learning about the Mayan culture. Also the cenote swim was the cherry on top. The crew: Esmerelda, Alma, Serge, and Papparazzi made the experience worth it, especially since our moments were captured by the team. Highly recommend going if you’re thinking of a fun activity to do with friends and family... 10 out of 10 a must have experience ❤️🥰

BUCKET LISTEN EXPERIENCE

Serge and his staff were absolutely incredible. It was truly the experience of a lifetime. The farm was so beautiful it felt like we were in a movie. The animals are well kept, feed, and groomed. The water of the cenote is a color blue I have never seen. Not only was this experience fun but the historical attributes incorporated were the highlight of our trip to Cancún. I seriously recommend it. This experience will make you feel at one with yourself and the world.
