Rancho Bonanza—a two-in-one horseback riding and cenote tour—has been named one of the best nature and outdoor activities in the world on Tripadvisor’s annual Travelers’ Choice Awards.

Landing at No. 20 on the global list, Rancho Bonanza offers a unique tour that combines two of the most popular jungle adventures in one day: horseback-riding through the lush forest and exploring the depths of a wondrous cenote through the fascinating and exotic landscape of the Riviera Maya.

With more than 700 five-star Tripadvisor reviews and counting, the two-hour experience is safe and accessible for all skill levels at $110 per adult.

The tour begins with a convenient pickup from your hotel in either Cancún or Playa del Carmen. At the ranch, which also serves as a sanctuary for rescued animals, you will meet your horse for the day that will match your riding experience level.

Once you’re comfortable in the saddle, the adventure begins as you make your way into the Yucatan jungle accompanied by a knowledgeable guide who will point out native flora and fauna along the way. The ultimate destination is a picturesque natural cenote, or naturally-occurring limestone sinkhole, where you’ll be invited to dismount your horse and take a cool dip in the natural waters. Enjoy some complimentary snacks and drinks after drying off with towels provided by Rancho Bonanza.

After riding back to the ranch, the tour wraps up by providing return transportation to your hotel for a seamless experience.
