Afternoon UTV Adventure

After a required safety instructional briefing your guide will lead you to discover the true island of Aruba through some local neighborhoods to Black Stone Beach. Black Stone Beach is the only beach in Aruba with "black sand," and is bordered by tiny, iridescent black weathered stones.

Next you'll stop at the Tripod Natural Bridge, one of Aruba's most gorgeous areas.Tripod Natural Bridge, is three naturally formed bridges that are connected at one point and were made by coral limestone that was carved by years of pounding surf.

At the the next stop, the Bushiribana gold mine, you have a chance to uncover some gold. The Aruba Island Gold Mining Company constructed the Bushiribana smelter in 1872 to extract gold from the ore that was being mined in the adjacent Ceru Plat hills. It was in use for ten years.

Once you arrive at the Aruba Ostrich Farm, where 80 in total, of the world's largest living species will be waiting for you to meet them. Visitors are welcome to participate in a guided tour of the farm, which is home to both ostriches and their Australian relatives, the flightless emus. Through in-depth explanations and close contact with the birds, the trip offers the chance to learn about the natural behavior and survival instincts of these remarkable species. Enjoy a complimentary local snack at the farm to fuel your adventure the rest of the way.

You can unwind at Mangel Halto Beach, which is the final stop on your journey. Mangel Halto Beach is regarded as one of Aruba's best snorkeling spots. It has wonderful views of the coastline and a great snorkeling spot on the beach.

YOU MUST DO THIS!

Our afternoon UTV Adventure with EL Tours was so much fun. Pickup at the cruise port was on time and we were transported to the UTV location and greeted by our guide Jason. We were the only ones on the tour that afternoon so we basically had a private tour. We were given a safety briefing and complimentary bandana. First stop, the Ostrich Farm where we toured the facility, fed the ostriches and were treated to refreshments and snacks. This is an off-road adventure so it's bumpy, dusty and dirty but so worth it. We visited old ruins, Boca Tabla, Boca Pistol and the Natural Pond where we had time for a quick swim. Jason was an exceptional guide and provided great insight into the island of Aruba and all of its natural beauty. We were then escorted back to the starting point where we boarded the bus for return to the port. Next time in Aruba, get out of the port area and take this tour....you won't regret it!

The guide showed us a fun time. He spent a fair amount of time at each destination. The ride was very bumpy, which was fun for us, but if you have a bad back this might not be for you.

What an amazing adventure

We were a small group, and our guide was very personable and extremely knowledgeable about the Island. The caves were breathtaking, and hearing about how the Island was formed was very interesting. We were guided to a few places where it was picture perfect, and even taken to a very local beach where we hopped in the water for a nice break. Our guide gladly offered to take photos of us at all locations. I would definitely book again when traveling to Aruba

Amazing journey

The UTV adventure is an incredible way to explore Aruba's beautifully rugged coastline. Our tour guide was both friendly and knowledgeable. The natural bridges and the natural pool are amazing attractions, but this tour is mainly for the adventurous, not the faint of heart, because the terrain is pretty rocky. Well worth it!
