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.

This was honestly worth every penny. Not only were the horses and the service amazing but the pack of Dogs were an added bonus. Pamela has a special place in my heart, would totally go again if I could.

This was an incredible experience - a wonderful horseback rode through gorgeous cacti up to a vista of the entire island, then down to a beautiful beach and one of the most fantastic places my daughter and I have ever been - the 'natural pool.'

Truly unforgettable

This was honestly one of the best experiences we had during our stay on the island. Joshua was such a fantastic conversationalist and his mother was truly a pleasure. Our other guide was named Andres and he was incredibly knowledgeable about the terrain and the animals. If you're on the fence about horseback riding, I cannot recommend this family/company enough. Thank you guys for making our trip unforgettable! Happy travels, Donald and Mallorie Smith

AMAZING horseback ride to see some Aruba nature!!

We visited Aruba in early December 2020 and contemplated several of the advertised tours, but the first on which we could agree was the Horseback Ride and Natural Pool – and it was a very good choice! Starting with the pickup at our hotel by Johan, we found the personnel very informative and helpful – he got us quickly to Rancho Loco, and we soon found ourselves mounted and out on the trail. The ride was on an interesting trail (not surprisingly) away from the island’s residences and over some gentle hills. The guides are experts and the horses well trained, so well trained in fact that they require little management to stay in line and on the trail. The pool is an interesting natural formation, with an arc of craggy boulders provides a break where waves can wash in and freshen the pool, but only with gentle waves. It is a nice, relaxing spot to cool down after a ride in the mid-day sun. The surrounding rock formations are also quite majestic – I am sure that millions of photographs have been taken!! This Tour should be on everyone’s “ToDo” list for Aruba for its uniqueness and interest – a look at a part of Aruba very unlike the white sand beaches and downtown shopping.
