  • "I wish I wore water shoes for the natural pool as the rocks were very slippery, so for anyone reading this-wear good quality water shoes!" See review
  • "They offer helmets at the beginning of the trip but we all had hats and stuff so we didn’t need." See review
  • "If you are an experienced rider, you may want to pay for the private/vip experience so you get a chance to canter on the white sand beach." See review

Our guides were excellent and we enjoyed every moment of the journey on our beautiful well cared for horses. I recommend going in the late afternoon to see the beautiful golden tones as the sun gets lower… we captured some beautiful photos to cherish.

Horses, and watching the ocean water crash into rocks. Such beauty should be appreciated. Stop a moment and breath the air while looking at where you are that moment in time.

The first thing we booked for our trip was horseback riding. Let me first say, the owner and staff we so kind and made the whole ride so much fun. Even if you are a beginner, they have a horse for everyone. My husband and I had the most amazing adventure. The ride to the natural pool was absolutely beautiful. Definitely recommend Rancho loco!

What an incredible experience! The staff was friendly and very accommodating, the horses were well trained and cared for and the views beautiful, everything was excellent. Patrick and the staff at Ranco Loco made sure the adventure was great in every way. My horse Titan was a perfect match for me and was well behaved and easy to ride. I would highly recommend taking this tour to see the natural beauty of Aruba.
