Overview

Once your cruise docks in Aruba's port, spend your time on shore horse back riding and swimming in the island's natural pool during this 3-hour shore excursion. Combine two activities that allow you to see 'Conchi', or the Natural Pool, surrounded by Arikok National Park's rugged terrain and only reachable by horse or 4x4 vehicle. Round-trip transportation from the cruise port included; no horseback riding experience necessary.
  • 3-hour shore excursion in Aruba
  • Horseback riding journey to the Natural Pool
  • Admission to Arikok National Park
  • Visit Conchi, or the Natural Pool, not accessible by car
  • No horseback riding experience neccessary
  • Gallop through the dunes (optional)
  • Pickup and drop-off at the cruise port
Disembark from your cruise ship to meet your guide outside the port's gates, where you'll settle in to an air-conditioned minivan bound for Rnacho Daimari. Along the way, watch the urban sprawl of Oranjestad melt into the open landscape of the sparsely inhabited North Coast.

Ranch hands will give you an orientation and set you up with a horse according to your skill level. Once you feel safe and comfortable, your group will set out for Arikok National Park, home to 'Conchi', the Natural Pool. Arrive at the pool and dismount to spend about half an hour exploring and cooling off in the pool. 

Back on your horse, journey home through the impressive sand dunes, where you can urge your horse into a gallop if you feel comfortable. Back at Rancho Daimari, bid your horse goodbye and catch your ride back to the cruise port for drop-off.

This was the highlight of our trip. There were only four of us on this tour, which was really nice. Our guide was waiting for us outside the cruise terminal just as we were told. We then had to pick up another couple at a hotel. Unfortunately, they were about 1/2 hour late. This was not the excursion people's fault though. We enjoyed seeing and interacting with the horses and the dogs once at the ranch. The ride to the natural pool was absolutely gorgeous. The horses were very easy to ride and they placed us on certain horses based on our previous riding experience. Once at the natural pool we had fun climbing over the rocks and playing in the water. Just a warning, it is quite slippery walking over the rocks and we were glad we had worn our water shoes. The water is also quite rough as waves are crashing in and splashing you around, but it was absolutely beautiful. On the way back, my horse kept wanting to gallop, but I was wet from the pool so I didn't really want to gallop so I had to rein him in a little. I would absolutely do this excursion again. It was fabulous!

We sooo enjoyed our Horseback ride, the surroundings and the beautiful natural pool and the ocean view. Our guide took soo many beautiful pictures...ones that we could never have taken ourselves. In fact we used one as the cover of our Christmas card. The only suggestion we have is during the drive to and from the ranch a little dialogue about Aruba and what we were seeing on our drive would have been appreciated since it was our first trip there.

My sister and I had an amazing day at this ranch. It was just the two of us on this excursion. We were picked up and rode in a van to the farm . The horse's were well taken care of. We enjoyed our horse back ride and our stop at the Natural pool. The water was so clear and warm. If you get the chance take this excursion and enjoy the beautiful view.

My wife and I enjoyed the horseback riding. The trip via van to and from the ranch was bumpy, but exciting. The horses were patient and well-trained. The guide was very attentive and made sure that our group kept together and was safe. The guide took many pictures of us and I would like to obtain copies. Elliott G. January 2017

Okay , so the actual horse riding was really good. However viator certainly has to up the game on getting cruise ship patrons to and from the destination. We were promised an airconditioned minibus - what turned up was basically a golf cart. We drove for nearly half an hour in this thing on a very busy highway, until I said enough. Then we met up with the bus, which only had two passengers on it, who had been picked up at a hotel and said it was even early.......

This trip was actually a bucket list item for me. I booked it for me, my husband and our 4 kids, aged from 10 to 21........we ALL loved it! The 10 year old was scared and the guide made him really comfortable. None of us really had any experience riding horses. It was relaxed and a great long ride to the Natural Pool. All the way to, from and at the pool, were incredible views. It was actually just the 6 of us too so it was like our own private tour. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone....well worth the money.
