Horseback Ride: Northeast Coast & Sand Dunes

Discover the pristine beauty of Aruba and its wonderful northeast coast on this outstanding horseback riding excursion.

After an introduction to your horse and a safety briefing, mount up for your guided trip through the "Cunucu" - the Aruban countryside. You will ride to the beautiful northeast coast and its fine, white sand dunes, passing the famous Rock Wish Garden, where tourists make wishes and build their own miniature rock towers along the beach, and the Tierra del Sol Golf Course along the way. Experienced riders will be allowed to gallop over the sand dunes, and beginners will have the opportunity to trot along the coast. The approximate time with the horses is two hours.

You will have a short stop on the beach to take pictures and stretch your legs before heading back to the stables. All skill levels are welcome.

Due to the tropical climate, the horses in Aruba are much smaller than the horses in the USA or Europe. The following horse types can be found: Paso Fino, Trocha, Trotton, and the South American Quarter Horse.

We cruise every year to different islands and often do a horse back riding excursion. This one was simply the best! Our guide, Nector?, was outstanding. The horses were in good shape, the ranch was clean. and the trails were well marked. We were allowed to canter, if we chose, at certain points. We rode for 2 hours! 5 stars, worth every penny!!

Upon booking this wonderful excursion we were given a set of very interesting directions that read something like, Meet your ride at a gas station by the ice machine. Although it sounded a little scary movie it was the most wonderful thing to do in Aruba. Our guides were knowledgeable and kind. We were asked about our skill level and although we were inexperienced in the ways of horseback we were also welcome to challenge ourselves with some trotting and even galloping. My horse, Juanes was the perfect fit for me! Energetic and fun and our guides encouraged us to be calm and happy for the horses. The views were beautiful, we even saw our ship from the top of the mountain. This activity is great for children of all ages. We had our 10 year old and a 6 year old in our group. None of the riders had much experience and we all enjoyed ourselves and the ride. I would do this everyday if I could and is easily one of our top Caribbean memories!

We had a blast on this adventure! The ranch was clean and horses were well taken care of! The guides went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable whiling engaging us as challenged as we wanted to be! The horses loved to trot, which added extra excitement to the trail ride! The scenery was beautiful which ecompassed the beautiful rocky coastline and a few rocky mountains! The guides had safety and fun in mind, especially with our 7 and 10 year old! It was fun for all ages! Small groups allowed for personalized attention! They even gave our kids a gold painted horseshoe keepsake! The guides took multiple pictures throughout, which were airdropped for free at the conclusion of the tour! I would definitely recommend this tour! It’s a must do!
