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

Excellent tour for all levels of riders. Easy walking, some trotting and galloping. About an hours ride to the natural pool. View in top of the mountain is amazing. Spent 1/2 hour at natural pool then ride back an hour to the ranch. Horses were excellent and followed each other. All ranch employees fantastic and friendly and love the horses. Also have lots of dogs, a few cats and a couple of turtles!

It was ok. Would not do again

This tour was pretty fun. You ride your horse through the national park. You go through a fairly narrow path with cactus on both sides so you have to hope your horse stays in line. I was not at all impressed from the beginning of the tour however. Me and my wife did this together but they put us on horses away from each other. We were not able to talk to each other or get pictures together due to being separated and other horses between us. It made it feel like we went by ourselves. The natural pool is extremely rough water and is about 16 foot deep. You have to climb over super slippery rocks to get in where you get pounded by huge waves the entire time. It was not at all relaxing and was quite dangerous. You take the same path back from the pool as you take there so you dont get to see a lot of scenery. It id mainly a desert ride. The tour guides were very friendly though

Was an excellent tour. I was a little nervous going downhill since I hadn't been on a horse for many years. But it was very safe and the horses know exactly what to do. Swimming in the natural pool was amazing!
