Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your full-day Aruba 4x4 adventure takes you to two of the island’s most popular coastal sites: the Natural Pool and Baby Beach. Start with hotel pickup in the morning for the ride to the tour operator’s base, where you meet your guide for a safety briefing before taking off in a caravan of Land Rovers. 

Take a seat in your open-air vehicle—designed with extra-cushioned seats for a comfortable ride—and set out toward Arikok National Park, a protected preserve that makes up almost 20 percent of the island. En route, stop for photo ops of historical and natural landmarks including the California Lighthouse on Aruba’s northern end. Hear about the island’s gold-prospecting days at the Gold Mill Ruins and view Natural Bridge, a limestone formation on the northeast coast that collapsed in 2005. 

Around midday, enjoy a homemade barbecue lunch and then continue to traverse rugged terrain through the national park to the Natural Pool, a coastal swimming hole accessible only to 4WD vehicles. With free time here, snap on your provided snorkel and mask to explore the pool formed by volcanic rock, and refresh with a cool beverage.

Departing the Natural Pool, travel by Land Rover to Baby Beach, a crescent-shaped stretch of shoreline located on Aruba’s southern coast. Enjoy more free time to relax at this Caribbean paradise, using your snorkeling gear to explore the marine life in the shallow, tranquil waters. 

On the way back to your hotel, stop at a few other cultural landmarks including the Alto Vista Chapel and Anchor in Memory of All Seamen for a few photo opportunities.

Anchor in Memory of All Seamen
At one time San Nicolas was the driving force of Aruba's economy. It relied mostly on the economy of the seas. Many European merchants visited to do trades, but also to exchange with other merchants who were passing through. Later when the refinery opened in San Nicolas, Aruba started to receive mega-tankers to load and unload mostly crude and derivatives. As a recognition of the sailors and marine history, the anchor was placed. The contrast and backdrop are stunning and certainly a must see. Picture Opportunity

If you want to take an already amazing tour and put it into adventure mode, request Donnie. Clearly a local with immense passion for his island. Many stories and adventure making it feel like a personal invitation to his home. Great laughs. Great adventures. Thank you Donnie. Jayson was the captain of the tour and he was just as informative and helpful. The two of them together was something very special.

Donny amd Uncle Johnny were both amazing tour guides. They made the experience adventurous and fun. They even remembered everyone's name through out the day. We made tons of scenic stops and got to swim and snorkle at two beaches. The natural pool is beautiful. The experience came with a lunch included. We chose to have the delicious grouper which came with the most sides. Everything was good. They also made sure you were hydrated during the entire trip by giving you a water bottle at the beginning of the trip and keeping it filled with fresh cold water for you. I definitely will take this all day excursion again .
