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!

My wife and i came to aruba for our honeymoon and did a horseback riding tour with rancho loco snd it was our favorite excursion of the trip! The guides were very nice and made the experience memorable. The natural pool was awesome to see and the ride had beautiful views of the island.

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.

Great staff. Unbelievable views! And the horses were the ones that separated this tour versus any others we’ve done in the past! All around incredible experience!

Could not have had a better time! Our tour guide Josh was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the island and we had a very pleasant conversation with him. Being an inexperienced rider, the horses were so well behaved which made the whole experience worthwhile. The natural pool was a great touch.

Awesome experience! Rancho Loco offers the best value on the island - 2.5 hours of beautiful scenic horse back ride. The horses are well trained and the guides super nice. Would do it again!

5-star experience!
Jun 2021 • Couples
I can’t recommend Rancho Loco enough! The horses were amazing and so gentle, and the guides/staff were wonderful and took such good care of us! I also loved playing with the rescue dogs at the ranch. If you love animals, incredible views, and superb staff, then you do not want to miss the Rancho Loco experience!
