Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Begin your horseback riding adventure with pickup at your Aruba hotel or at a centrally located meeting point, where you'll climb into a comfortable tour vehicle for the trip to Rancho Loco.

Once there, meet your horseback riding guide, who will match you with a horse according to your skills or abilities. You can also get instructions and guidance on how to handle the horse; no horseback riding experience is necessary for this tour. Get comfortable with your horse and the commands before heading out on the trail. 

Ride through Arikok National Park and up into the highlands for photo-worthy views of the island. Descend through the sand dunes to the beach, where you'll ride along the shoreline to a natural pool. Spend about half an hour exploring the area and swimming (optional). Climb back on your horse and head back to the stables. 

Say goodbye to your trusty steed, climb back into your ground transportation, and you'll be transported back to your original departure point.

  • "Riding through the regular streets at first before getting to the National park was fun but galloping on the beach was even more fun until we came to the natural pool." See review

This is one of the best tours in Aruba. My kids LOVED it and begged me to take them again, but unfortunately we were in Aruba for only a couple of days and didn’t have enough time. We definitely will do it again. The horses were amazing and knew exactly what to do and where to go. It was such a natural and serene ride to and fro the natural pool. Our tour guides were great!!!! Very funny and made us feel comfortable throughout the whole experience. I would give this tour ten stars if possible and I would advise anyone vacationing in Aruba to make it a must. Definitely worth it!

Laid back, very enjoyable way to experience the island's unique terrain. The horses were great, and the staff wonderful! My wife and I enjoyed it immensely, and there were a few super friendly dogs (auxiliary staff) at the stable that I could have adopted in a heartbeat! Go for it!

WOW.

Wow. We did a couple of touristy things on the island, which is usually *not* our thing. But we had a blast. The staff was very friendly, the horses are mostly on autopilot (so no need to fear this if it's your first time), and the scenery is JAW DROPPING. Jaw. Dropping. Go on this tour; it's worth every penny (and a generous tip for your hosts). PS We didnt find the rocks to be all that sharp, so I wouldn't worry about water shoes. But sunscreen - bring it, use it, love it. Too much is just enough.

I had no horse riding experience before this excursion and I had a great time. Getting to see this neat piece of Aruba from horseback was such a fun experience! The sights and the natural pool were beautiful and the horses were incredibly well-trained. Our tour guide left much to be desired in terms of information and interaction, but apparently he wasn’t the full time guide.

Wouldn't miss this!

Would highly recommend this trip. Such a beautiful way to explore some of Aruba's national park and the beauty of the island. The tour guide was fun and we enjoyed good conversation along with beautiful views as we headed toward the natural pools. The natural pools are an incredible addition to your trip to Aruba and we were able to spend some time swimming and cooling off before our trek back to the ranch. The horses were great, so well behaved and easy to ride (this coming from someone who hasn't been on a horse in probably 15 years!!). If we ever get another opportunity we would definitely do it again.
