Polo in Mexico - beach and polo all year round

We play polo in the jungle 11.5km inland from the beautiful Carribean beaches on a full grass field and a sand arena. I find myself in the best of both worlds here. We get many visitors from the cold north and always welcome our fellow polo players. We are only 15 minutes from Cancun's International Airport making this one of the easiest polo destinations to get to in the world. If you want to visit and play, take a class or even just stick and ball we can help you find accommodation and set up… Continue

New Website for Mexican Polo

I first came to the beautiful colonial town of San Miguel de Allende in the dead middle of Mexico some 6 years ago. And just like every other ex-pat (American or Canadian) I now have the same story. Within days I had fallen in love, and while some just stay, it took me 6 years to figure out how I could bring the sport and the work I love to the town that I'd lost my heart to. But here I am.

I've worked and played polo for nearly 10 years in Northern VA at a number of different clubs. I… Continue

Horsewhispers....

A young soul steeped in ancient wisdom described his love of the King's game to me this way...



" Polo is karma. I believe. Its also about a way of life. People notice the frills there is much more. Its dedication. It love. Its care and its passion. It rewarding and its teaching. Learning all along for ever. And its a great sorter. The shallow ones become players. Lucky ones become human. Horses teach a lot. Actually the best lessons of life if you think are learnt in quiet and… Continue
