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’ll be 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 1.5 hours, you’ll 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.

After the refreshing pit stop, return to Rancho Bonanza to say goodbye to your horse and head back to your hotel.
