Program

Day 1

On the first day, El Paseo Ranch Aruba will pick you up at the Beatrix International Airport (AUA) and welcome you to the island and drive you to the vacation property. The driver will be at your disposal for any grocery stops you might require.

Though the first day is scheduled to be a day to help you settle, it can also serve as a day to briefly get to know your equestrian friend for the coming days.

Day 2

Early morning, you will be picked up and meet your guide(s) and matching horse after a wonderful local breakfast. Following a briefing and safety demonstration, you are ready to start your riding adventure.

The first ride will take you through the rugged desert landscapes and off roads to the California Lighthouse where you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the Northern part of the island.

The riding on this day will be approximately three hours and you will be back at the ranch just in time for a local lunch. At about 2 p.m. you can either choose to head back to your accommodation or enjoy some free time on one of the beautiful white-sand beaches.

Day 3

This day starts at dawn as you will experience a unique, once in a lifetime experience on this sunrise tour. You can enjoy a light smoothie before heading towards the day’s sunrise. You ride into the national park where first light offers colorful birds to observe under a canopy of cactus and blooming wildflowers.

Riding on the coast, you will grasp Aruba's nature in all its glory. You will hear the serene roar of the surf while Caribbean rollers crash on the shore and you breathe in the purest of air.

The sights of the rugged landscape and picturesque surroundings are truly a privilege to savor. You will make a stop at the most famous chapel on the island: the Alto Vista Chapel. When heading back to the ranch, you will enjoy a late breakfast after which you have a couple of free hours to explore the island on your own.

At 4 p.m., you will be picked up and driven to the ranch to ride your horse for the second time that day on an enchanting sunset tour. The cooler trade wind breezes and golden afternoon sunlight sparkling on the sea make this experience truly magical. You will ride through the rugged scenery once again before descending to the expanses of beautiful beaches as the island is exhaling its last breath for the day.

Once on the beach, you will enjoy the cool mist of the ocean spray cooling you off as the sunset begins on the horizon, casting brilliant color into the air over the ocean. Making your way back, you will ascend the highest point of the tour where a panoramic view of the entire northern part of Aruba can be admired at sunset. You will end this long but special day with a lovely Caribbean dinner.

Day 4

This last riding day will be a combination of horseback riding to parts of the islands not yet visited and beach hopping. After breakfast, you will leave the ranch for a horse-ride to the Malmok Beach for some refreshing snorkeling time. As you return to the ranch, you will get some time to say goodbye to your equestrian friend as you will continue to explore the best beaches of the island by vehicle / van.

This beach hopping day includes a meal in one of the most demanded fresh fish restaurants in the Caribbean or a BBQ on one of the most visited beaches of the island. At the end of this day, you will be dropped at your vacation rental to enjoy your last night on the island.

Day 5

You will serve you breakfast before driving you to the airport and assist you with the departure procedures.

The horses

The company takes great pride in its Paso Fino breed horses, with a wide selection from young stock to mature horses that suit the comfort of young and old. With its proud carriage and elegance, the Paso Fino is a great equine partner. All horses are lovingly cared for and in excellent condition for your ride.

It is the company's own setting that provides the training for the horses creating sensible and comfortable trail horses. The focus of El Paseo Ranch Aruba tours is to provide healthy, well trained and well-matched horses suited to each individual rider and their specific riding skills. Since the horses are valuable assets, El Paseo Ranch Aruba regret not being able to tour people weighing more than 240 pounds.

Instructors and guides

From the owners to the guides to the supporting staff, all were born and raised in Aruba and are rich in history and culture. The guides have over 30 years of equestrian experience and a deep passion for meeting new people with the talent for exceptional personal service. Safety, fun, friendliness and personal attention is the mission of each staff member.

The owners grew up on a family-owned ranch attending and training horses from their early years. They have won numerous prizes in local and international equestrian competitions. This has also been passed down to the current generation, you will therefore certainly be seeing them attending the horses too.

Notes

Each tour is private and will only include you and the tour guide. There will be no additional riders in your group, allowing exclusive and sole attention to you. El Paseo Ranch Aruba like to leave early in the mornings or late in the afternoons as to avoid the Caribbean sun during the hottest parts of the day. This is done out of consideration for both the well-being of the horses as that of the guests.

All riding skills are welcome and will be matched to their horses according to their riding experience and skills.
