Natural pool ride.
Oct 2021
Loved the horseback ride to the natural pool. Susan & Josh were knowledgeable & fun. Unfortunately the water was too rough to swim in the pool. But we all enjoyed the trip. The ranch is very cool with lots of horses, dogs, cats, chickens, pigs! The waiting area is clean as were the bathrooms. Highly recommend!

Amazing experience!
This was probably our favorite tour in Aruba! It was so fun to ride a horse on the desert into the beach all the way to a natural pool. I am not an experienced rider at all but I do I love horseback riding. I think this was the first time I fully felt like I was riding a horse into the wild, haha. The tour guides were amazing as well and super friendly. At the natural pool they were willing to take our pictures and help us through the rocks. One tip tho, do wear closed toed shoes and long pants over your bathing suit. I wore shorts and my legs did hurt after riding for 2hrs.

Wonderful Tour! Worth the Time/Cost
Sep 2021
Amazing way to visit the Arikok National Park and Natural Pool. Horses were very friendly and well trained. There's a small satchel on the horse's saddle that allows you to bring a few essentials & they'll give you a bottle of water. Definitely wear water shoes and bring a towel to sit on/use. Wish there was slightly more time to take photos on your horse, our group tried to take a few of one another but they all turned out subpar compared to if the guides choose a scenic spot to take a few for us. The natural pool is awesome to swim in, probably looks more intimidating than it really is. As long as your a decent swimmer, you'll be okay. I'd say this is a can't miss for Aruba. 100% recommend!

A great experience
Aug 2021 • Family
Me and my fiancé really enjoyed our your. Our two guides, I believe Danny and the others name started with an A but I can’t remember, were great. Like very great. So personable, friendly and made sure we had a good time. Neither me or my fiancé have much experience riding, less than 5 times between the both of us but you really don’t need experience. The horses are really well trained and our guides gave great and simple instructions. I think we had just the right amount of time at the natural pool. I would definitely do this tour again and bring my family along as well. I do wish there were more photo opportunities but for such a great relaxing time maybe it is better to not be interrupted with photo ops! So thank you Rancho Loco for the great tour in such a beautiful national park.

10/10 You Should Book This!!
Aug 2021 • Couples
My fiancé and I keep saying this was the best activity we did on our trip- We had such a such a great time!! The tour guides were kind and knowledgeable. The trail is absolutely gorgeous, the natural pool was so fun, AND the horses are extremely well trained. We were inexperienced riders and felt safe the whole time. 10/10 would definitely recommend booking with Rancho Loco!

A great horseback-riding and sightseeing/swimming experience!!!
Aug 2021 • Family
Viewing the openness and beauty of Arikok National Park while riding on a beautiful horse was a great experience. Swimming in the cove was a lot of fun as well. You are surrounded by beauty throughout the whole trip. The guides of Rancho Loco were professional and so friendly. Andres, who was riding behind me while on the way to the cove, was informative and pointed out animals such as the mountain goats and the Aruban eagle. The horses were so well-behaved and well taken care of. Also, my children had a great time petting all of the rescue dogs on the ranch. It was a perfect, leisurely activity and a great way to see this beautiful park which covers 20% of the island! Highly recommend!!!

Only way to explore the national park!
This tour is a must! We explored the national park and received many stories and information about the island! The hosts were incredible — only positive attributes. The horses were the standouts of the tour; if you want to explore the national park, this should be the first tour that you should book!
