A BLAST
Oct 2021
This excursion was SO much fun! When I first heard we were horseback riding to a natural pool, I thought we'd be walking on the beach but it was actually in the National Park and we rode up, down and all around on various types of terrain. We rode about an hour to the natural pool and an hour back, so we really got our money's worth! Plus, the staff were super nice and knowledgeable and somehow timed it right so we had the natural pool all to ourselves (which was awesome because as we were leaving, 40 tourists showed up at once. :) Cheeno was the best horse and they even let us trot and canter on the way back, which made my younger horseback riding self so happy!!

The ride there and back is pretty sunny, so don't forget sunscreen! No backpacks or bags when riding, so anything you bring has to fit into the saddle bags or stay back at the stable. They provide waters too, which was super helpful.

Wonderful Horseback Riding Tour!
Mar 2021
Beautiful ranch! The team were excellent in greeting you and introducing you to the horses. Gentle beautiful horses, I got to ride Portugal.
The tour guides were great in leading the way through the beautiful Arikok National Park. There were lots of interesting plants and things in the desert landscape that were so fascinating! The best was saved last after riding for a while we came upon the most beautiful beach, Morrow beach and got to dip and swim in the Natural pool.
The locals call this beach "The Secret Beach" For the right reasons, It was like presto all of a sudden you are coming out of the park and there is this beautiful site to behold. I highly recommend this horseback riding tour.
The guides took photos of us while riding and you and find your photos there Facebook page.

GIVE RANCHO LOCO A GO!
Oct 2021 • Couples
YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO DO THIS EXCURSION!!!

The Rancho Loco owner and staff, was very helpful throughout the entire horseback guided tour!

Andres was a TOP NOTCH tour guide! This guy goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable about horseback riding by showing you the ropes( well in this case reins). He also helps you capture the unforgettable memories by taking pictures for you as well!

I’d 110% recommend you booking this excursion with Rancho Loco! You won’t regret it!

This was one of my favorite experiences of our stay in Aruba. I very much appreciated the courtesy call for pick up. It was a beautiful evening for my husband and I, the weather was perfect 👌🏾. Our guides where really awesome about keeping our horses together. We literally rode off into the sunset it was so beautiful. We all got back safe and sound.

Amazing horseback ride to natural pool
Sep 2021 • Couples
My husband and I went to Aruba on our honeymoon. We heard good things about this excursion and awww could not agree enough. The experience was amazing and the horses were well trained. We had never ridin horses before and we were a bit scared but they were very friendly, slow, and the guide made sure everything went smoothly at all times. Highly recommend!

Great trip! Plan plenty of time to enjoy!
Aug 2021 • Solo
This was a great experience!! Ours ran VERY long (4 hours instead of the 2.5 on their site, plus hotel transport time), not really sure what the factors were there but I’d definitely recommend planning a solid half-day for it so you can enjoy it without feeling rushed. The natural pool is an amazing site, has a small “cliff” you can jump off of to make all your Instagram followers jealous, and has gorgeous views. Arikok is a gorgeous NP, great views there as well, and I would definitely recommend exploring it more on your trip beyond this experience. The horses were very well trained. The route went over a narrow bit of larger rocks as one point but the horses managed it very well. Staff was accommodating toward novice and first time riders. Would recommend (but again plan more time than they suggest).

Horrible customer service
Aug 2021 • Family
Would rate zero stars if I could - poor communication through a third party vendor who claims they sent a confirmation email but I never received ANYTHING that told me to confirm just an email saying I was all set with the vouchers and said we would be picked up between 8-9…they never showed up. Man at the ranch when I called was rude and blamed me. Horrible customer service when tourism is your livelihood. You would think they would have fallen up with a phone call if they didn’t hear from us considering they had already charged my credit card over a month ago!!
Save your money and book Rancho Notorious excellent customer service and 30% discount when you book online.
