Departure Time

8:30 AM
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.

Anchor in Memory of All Seamen
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

Uncle Johhny and M.J. were the tour guides for my excursion. They were both phenomenal!! Very helpful and super knowledgeable about each location where we made stops. The tour itself is expansive. You truly cover the entire island! I feel like I got to see every attraction Aruba has to offer. There are at least 3 stops along the way to enjoy the refreshing waters of places like Baby Beach and The Natural Pool. On top of that, everyone was treated to a delicious BBQ meal that is included in the price of the tour. I truly enjoyed my experience. The roads are very bumpy, so be prepared for that if you ride toward the back of the jeep's seating. Also you will get dirty, but it's all worth it to see all of the amazing sites!! Aruba Ariba!!!

A group of us (11) recently went on this excursion and had a blast! We still talk about Uncle John, lunch, and the stops. It is a comprehensive trip if you want to see and explore the island! Once in land, the weather is dry heat so bring a lot of sunscreen, water, hat, and cover yourself from the sun. We felt very safe (during COVID-19).

Travel into the Culture and Compassion of Aruba, guided by an Incredible Tour Guide
Chad_K
, Aug 2020
The trip was a great overview of the island, heartfelt stories and saw a true insight to the culture. Uncle John spoke from the heart and showed his passion for the island and it's people throughout the entire day. I would recommend bringing both water shoes along with walking shoes as there is brief hiking to and from the natural pool. Request Uncle John, he is one of, if not the best tour guide I've had on any trip I've been. We will be in contact with Uncle John when we come back to Aruba.

The tour guide uncle Johnny and Clay were amazing. Honestly I recommend this tour.

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.
