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.

Traveler Tips


  • "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

Enjoyable Afternoon

Tour pick up was punctual and very polite. Better for intermediate riders than first timers but still an excellent option for a day trip. The natural springs were beautiful and look just like the pictures! Andres and Susan were wonderful guides. The horses were well-behaved and well taken care of.

Awesome time!

Such an amazing experience. The ranch was beautiful, the horses were all sweet and well managed. The staff was incredible! Fun and interactive. They had a lot of knowledge about the island and horses in general. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and really enjoyed this excursion! I would do it again if coming back to Aruba! One thing to be aware of, some of the horses have specific spots they like to walk in, so u might now be right by your family or partner. But that didn’t effect our time, we still both had a blast!

If they could have told us to wear swimming suit, bring water shoes, snorkeling mask and a towel, it would have made the natural pool experience better!

Peaceful Countryside Experience

I this was a beautiful way to see the countryside of Aruba! We lucked out and were the only two people on the tour. I’ve never ridden before and with simple instructions I was able to have a smooth ride. Our guide, I believe his name was Andres, was good about reminding us how to ride when going up and down the terrain. Following instructions is key to safety especially for a beginner. It was very peaceful to ride and you get to see the islands beauty from different vantage points. My husband said he felt like an island cowboy! The natural pool was beautiful, and definitely a must see! It’s such a contrast to the calm beach experience you’ll find on the west coast of the island. Definitely wear pants and shoes over your swimsuit because the trail has lots of thorny bushes that you might slightly graze. All our horses had their own personalities so taking care to pay attention to your companion at the beginning of the ride is helpful, for example my horse was following the guide like he was supposed to but he kept going a different path and I finally realized he didn’t like walking in the water so he was just trying to avoid puddles. Once I figured that out I knew he was going to avoid the water then get back in line. Great experience overall!

Exceeded expectations! I was just expecting a quick ride but we got a grand tour of Aruba. We went on the third highest peak and the view was stunning.

Highly recommend this tour. Our tour guides were great. Some recommendations- 1. don’t bring a lot of stuff you can’t take a back pack on the ride- the horses have saddle bags and you can put a few things in there. 2. You are matched with a horse based on your personality/ability. The horses are in a specific order on the ride (we rode single file) so depending on which horse you are matched with determines your place in line. It is probable that you will not be next to your family members. 3. You will not be able to stop on the ride and take pictures- there is just 1 stop at the natural pool.
