Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Traveling by Land Rover rather than ATV means tackling terrain that some off-road vehicles can’t handle.
Your full-day Aruba 4x4 adventure takes you to two of the island’s most popular coastal sites: the Natural Pool and Baby Beach. Start with hotel pickup in the morning for the ride to the tour operator’s base, where you meet your guide for a safety briefing before taking off in a caravan of Land Rovers.
Take a seat in your open-air vehicle—designed with extra-cushioned seats for a comfortable ride—and set out toward Arikok National Park, a protected preserve that makes up almost 20 percent of the island. En route, stop for photo ops of historical and natural landmarks including the California Lighthouse on Aruba’s northern end. Hear about the island’s gold-prospecting days at the Gold Mill Ruins and view Natural Bridge, a limestone formation on the northeast coast that collapsed in 2005.
Around midday, enjoy a homemade barbecue lunch and then continue to traverse rugged terrain through the national park to the Natural Pool, a coastal swimming hole accessible only to 4WD vehicles. With free time here, snap on your provided snorkel and mask to explore the pool formed by volcanic rock, and refresh with a cool beverage.
Departing the Natural Pool, travel by Land Rover to Baby Beach, a crescent-shaped stretch of shoreline located on Aruba’s southern coast. Enjoy more free time to relax at this Caribbean paradise, using your snorkeling gear to explore the marine life in the shallow, tranquil waters.
On the way back to your hotel, stop at a few other cultural landmarks including the Alto Vista Chapel and Anchor in Memory of All Seamen for a few photo opportunities.
Named after a merchant British steamship that was wrecked nearby in 1891. After the accident merchandise was said to have washed ashore, which locals gladly picked and sold in town. Shortly afterwards plans started to build a lighthouse. The keeper lived near the lighthouse. In the present the Lighthouse is fully functional and the keeper's house has been transformed into an Italian restaurant. Here you will hike the area.
On the south-eastern side of the island you will see one of Aruba's most iconic and visited beaches. Here you see young and old enjoying the beautiful turquoise sea with pristine white sandy beach. You won't be able to escape the views of the historic location of this beach in industrial San Nicolas. Here you be able to swim and snorkel
The original Natural Bridge collapsed in 2005, which now you can still see the remains. But fear not, because you will see another natural bridge adjacent to the original one. Not quite as big, but equally stunning, this natural bridge now is the largest in Aruba.Here you will hike the area
Located in the national park, you will see the Natural Pool is made out of vulcanic rocks. It offers a wall of protection against the big waves from coming in. You will see that waves crashing at the back of the rocks, only to splash gently into the pool. You will see that it takes almost 100 steps to get down to the pool. Here you will hike the area and swim and snorkel.

This catholic chapel as it currently stands dates back 1952. It has undergone many renovation and restoration rounds since. The chapel is build at the same location where a more primitive worship stood when this was erected in 1750. Alto Vista chapel is stated to be one of the first places where local native population were converted to Christianity. Nowadays it's mostly visited by Aruba tourists.Here you will hike the area.
Inside the damp and humid caves you see through moist the filtering of minerals the creation of natural columns that are also known as stalactite and stalagmite. Additionally you will see Indian hieroglyphs that stem hundreds of years. Don't be surprised to see long-tong bats at select time of day.Here you will hike the area.
Wariruri is an old Indian word. This attraction is located on the northern, rocky part of Aruba, and is popular among surfers due to its beach and has white sand dunes. It is flanked by a bridge made naturally of limestone and offers one of the most spectacular views anywhere. This natural bridge is currently the second largest of its type in Aruba.
At one time San Nicolas was the driving force of Aruba's economy. It relied mostly on the economy of the seas. Many European merchants visited to do trades, but also to exchange with other merchants who were passing through. Later when the refinery opened in San Nicolas, Aruba started to receive mega-tankers to load and unload mostly crude and derivatives. As a recognition of the sailors and marine history, the anchor was placed. The contrast and backdrop are stunning and certainly a must see. Picture Opportunity
This is the BEST tour!!!! Our tour guides were so kind and SO fun! We got a flat tire on the tour, but it maybe delayed us 45 minutes! ABC Tours was quick to respond and we were back on the road in no time! I highly recommend this tour!
Patrick, Luis, and Stephany were awesome! The best excursion of our cruise! Not only did they show us wonderful sites in Aruba but they showed us their love and passion for the island! Will be using them again!
This was our first time in Aruba. We came in off a cruise ship so we only had one day to see the highlights of Aruba. This tour was the best way to do it. we seen a lot of beautiful places. The jeep ride was so much fun and we had a blast. my husband and I are so glad we booked this tour. The lunch was delicious, the people we met were friendly and our tour guide Garrett was amazing. All the guides were awesome but we had Garrett driving our jeep. The snorkeling was great, the beach was great and the natural rock lagoon was also great. An amazing experience and would definitely recommend this tour. We were there on January 28, 2020. Well worth the money and experience.
We had a wonderful time, staff was friendly and so accommodating. We needed to be back to the ship before the tour ended and they sent someone to pick us up where we were in the tour to get us back to the ship in time.
This off road Jeep excursion was more than I was expecting. Totally worth the money and loved that it was an All Day trip! We were able to see different parts of the island and visited many of the popular tourist attractions. Some attractions I would not have been able to get to by myself if it wasn't for the tour, so that was a huge plus! Despite booking this trip solo, I did not feel isolated in anyway. Uncle Johnny and Jelle were my tour guides for the day! Would not have wanted anyone else. They were more than awesome. Big reason I had such a great time. Will request them when booking again through ABC tours!!!!!!
ABC Ultimate Jeep Safari was a great way to explore the island of Aruba. Our guides, Andrew and Uncle Johnny did and excellent job taking of all of us and providing information about the history of Aruba. We did the full day tour with a lunch served. The lunch was basic, but very good.
We had a great time on the tour. Andrew and Patrick were very personable and provided a wealth of information about the island. We really enjoyed getting to see a big part of Aruba, away from the commercial hotels. We’d highly recommend to anyone visiting the island.
