We have done the other ranches in Aruba and this was by far the best. Nestor, our guide, made us feel comfortable and confident as one of our group members was a nervous beginner. The scenery was amazing, horses were beautiful, and Nestor was so engaging. Make sure you ask him to sing to you! He is a man of many talents.

It was an absolute pleasure! Not only was this an extraordinary experience but it also enabled me to cross something off of my bucket list!
The owner of the place was very good at teaching me how to handle a horse and how to control it. It was awesome that he was able to explain all the necessary details so in five minutes I was already sitting on the horse. It was great to see how he cared for his animals as the horses were very well trained and his dog always followed him, even on our tour with the horses.
The best part was that he had a great trust in us that we were able to control the horses, so although I have never tried to ride a horse before, I was able to do a smaller gallop with him on the end of the day.
Thank you so much for all your help! It was a pleasure to ride your horses!

Emma our guide was great and told stories of the horses and their personality traits - it was evident she truly cared for them. All of the horses we saw were healthy and happy. The terrain and sights on our tour was so much better than in Arikok. We will continue to book with Notorious on our yearly Aruba trip. Thanks for the great time!

First, the gentleman who owns this establishment truly loves his animals. His dogs followed along for the visit and they were so sweet. Each horse had its' own personality which he respected and and advised us on how to handle each one accordingly. I would definitely come back for another ride!

Our friendly guide Emma took us through a dessert landscape to a beautiful little chapel and alongside a stunning ocean view. The horses were well trained but a little anxious to get where they were going so families with small inexperienced children might want to reconsider just because it may make your little ones a bit anxious. The horses never bucked or reward, they just wanted to move along and tended to trot to catch up. It was quite hot and dry, so bring plenty of sunscreen and a water bottle. I'm quite glad we chose this tour. The pick up directions seemed a little shady (lol) but we were picked up on time exactly where they told us to meet at the little gas station. I definitely recommend this tour.

Three people canceled on my tour so I had the guide all to myself. I was riding Barbaro a 9 year old gelding who was very friendly and gentle. Nestor, my guide, took me to Alto Vista Chapel where we sat and talked about the place. The dog Lucky was coming along with us for the whole tour. The scenery was amazing! We were cantering and galloping. It was just a beautiful experience and Nestor was very nice. I would recommend this tour! Make sure to wear jeans :) The horses were well cared for and Nestor seemed like a very experienced and passionate horseman who truly loves the horses. I’d go back in a heartbeat!

Took a 2 hour horseback ride. We got to see some really exciting places that were off the beaten path. The horses were very well behaved and the tour guide, Nester knew a lot about Aruba.

Four riders (three of which were unexperienced and two of the unexperienced were children). This ride was advertised for beginners and gentle ride. We were given one guide - who didn't even speak English. We were taken for a ride along the coast which was beautiful; however, the tour buses spooked our horses and one of the children was thrown while the other horses ran uncontrollably. The one guide couldn't even control his horse, much less four others. Very scary and could have ended in tragedy. God was looking over us - Rancho Notorios certainly wasn't.

Wow! If you are looking for an amazing off the beaten path horseback riding experience look no further. Nestor was our amazing tour guide, I would highly recommend requesting him. He is knowledgeable and friendly and makes you feel very comfortable. Weather your experienced or a first time rider you will really enjoy this excursion. This tour takes you through the desert to the chapel and then to the beach for some amazing picture opportunities. The horses get excited once you approach the beach area and will gallop for a moment if you’re comfortable. Such a rush! What made the tour even more incredible was Nestor, wouldn’t go on a another tour without Nestor as my guide, thank you Nestor!

I live in NY and try to trail ride in every new state or country I visit. My horseback ride through the Aruban countryside was one of my best! This is saying a lot as I have also owned horses on my property for 15 years. This is my first time ever visiting Aruba (celebrating 40 years of marriage) and also riding a Paso Fina, both were better than even I hoped for! Our wrangler Nestor is my all-time favorite ever. Of course he was an amazing handler and rider, but he was so thoughtful, anticipating our wishes before even asked. Now that is just the total wrangler package!
I love to be outside and the countryside, chapel and weather were just beautiful. The epitome however was taking our horses down on the rugged, wave-crashing north shore- BREATHTAKING!!!
Thank you Nestor and Rancho Notorious for a truly unforgettable ride!
