Beautiful day- well behaved horses and friendly staff
The ride was beautiful, relaxing and the guides were quite friendly and very knowledgeable. Riding through the regular streets at first before getting to the National park was fun but galloping on the beach was even more fun until we came to the natural pool. The water was clear and refreshing and a nice break before we headed back on another sweet ride.
From pickup to drop off, a wonderful experience. The horses are healthy, well cared for, and when we got there, the owners had just taken in a mother and her puppies playing with them was an added bonus, and it's obvious that the owners are animal lovers. The national park is wonderful, and the natural pool is something you must experience. I suggest bringing water shoes, because it is rocky and a bit slippery water shoes would make the entry and exit of the pool much easier. It takes about an hour to get to the pool and an hour to get back, so you must be prepared to be on horseback for some time. The terrain is rocky and hilly, but the sunset on the way back makes it all worth it. I am very glad I did this tour with my wife and children. Much thanks to Rancho Loco for a great experience! Request Chino he is a great horse!
EVERYBODY IS SO NICE IN RANCHO LOCO HORSE WAS GREAT NEVER ROAD A HORSE BEFORE NICE VIEW FROM NATURAL POOL
This was definitely our most favorite thing that we did in Aruba! We booked the tour online from home. Our hotel was able to confirm the reservation and arrange a pick up time for our family. We were picked up right on time and taken on the short ride to Rancho Loco. The horses were ready to go when we arrived. After a little safety chat, we got moving! Our guide, Dave, was truly awesome! He has such wonderful knowledge of horses personal and professional, trails, life in Aruba, and was an all around great guide! Our tour took us to the collapsed bridge, since an oil spill in Trinadad caused the Natural Pool to be closed. No worries, the ride was amazing! We were entertained and thrilled to see a side of Aruba that most don't get to see. We were able to stop and take a break before heading back, so the pace was perfect. Our family would be considered beginners with horses, but felt safe and comfortable the whole morning. We would highly recommend this tour, it exceeded our expectations, super fun!
What a great tour! We were picked up at our hotel and transported to the facility and prepped for our tour. Horses were very well behaved and in wonderful condition. Our group of 11 riders had a wonderful trip thru the National Park, along the beach and then to the Natural Pool. Tour allows for 30 minutes at the pool-the views and the water were amazing and refreshing! Be sure to bring your camera, a towel and pack a pair of water shoes. Getting down to and then in the pool is an adventure too! ENJOY!!
Our favorite tour during our stay. Very little time spent on roads. National Park and Natural Pool were beautiful. Nice guides and above average horses. Highly recommend.
Highlight of our Aruba trip...enjoyed seeing the natural reserve and seeing the beautiful coastline and natural pool. I think I would bring water shoes if I did this again, to help get in and out of the rocky natural pool and maybe a towel to dry your feet afterwards. The ranch staff who led our ride were welcoming, knowledgeable and really made sure everyone enjoyed their experience. I had riding experience from years ago but my husband had not, and we both really enjoyed the morning. Could not ask for a better excursion. We had looked at different tour options - jeep, ATV - but were very glad we chose horseback riding as a way to see a little more of Aruba.
This was a great tour! The horses were very friendly and well-trained, the staff was very professional, and the views on the tour were amazing! Definitely worthwhile. We did not get to swim in the natural pool because the waves were really high -- I assume that would have made it even better.
Friendly tour guides, well-trained horses, just as described. Definitely takes up a nice half of your day, but worth it. Great views, and lots of colorful fish in Natural Pool. Would definitely bring extra sunscreen, googles if you want to view the fish in natural pool, go pro, and water shoes got a few small cuts on our feet. Enjoy!
