Full description
Head to the cunucu (ranch land) of the Arubian countryside to ride horseback where donkeys, iguanas and parakeets live. The 2-hour tour takes you to the rugged side of Aruba, riding trails where no cars are allowed. Following a hotel or cruise ship pick-up, transfer to the ranch to be introduced to your guide before you mount your horse. Follow a dry riverbed, heading to the northeast coast. Look out for the colorful birdlife, including bright yellow trupial, green prikichi, and more. Sometimes you will also run into wild donkeys and large Iguanas. Continue along a dirt road following the coastline, where you will hear the waves crashing onto rocky coral and lava shore. Head towards the Alto Vista Chapel to take a short break, and admire the sacred grounds before taking a peek inside. Back on your horse, you will follow the trail back to the ranch, where you can purchase a cold beverage from the bar before your transfer back to your hotel, or Palm Beach for cruise passengers.

This is hands-down one of the best horseback riding tours I've ever taken. Our guide Nestor was so friendly and a very skilled equestrian. He also let me ride his personal horse! We spent a good portion of the ride cantering and galloping on the beach, so I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is comfortable on horseback and who is looking for an experience with more than just walking trails. Definitely wear long pants to your ankles, as I wore capris and ended up with my legs scratched from the desert brambles. The tour was beautiful, fun and affordable, and I would definitely recommend this ride.
