“Let Us Be the Highlight of Your Vacation!”
Exciting, Personal, and Safe! These three words describe Aruba’s best horseback riding adventure with the Gold Mine Ranch. Gracefully located right on the coast, the ranch offers exciting beach & ocean riding tours through some of the most amazing scenery of Aruba. The Gold Mine Ranch focuses on small groups in order to provide the best service to all its guests. “We provide horseback adventures, not just trail rides!”
The Gold Mine Ranch is a family operated ranch that aims to deliver personal service excellence, combined with a local flavor to all its guests. The Ranch was established in 2004 as a rescue Ranch, and still practices animal rescues, despite the fact that horse feed is very expensive in Aruba. “Our family loves animals and has continued the tradition of raising & rescuing farm animals for over 5 generations. We strive to make our guests feel like family with our genuine Aruban hospitality, rich with local knowledge”. Besides the scenic natural beauty of Aruba, the tour includes a brief history of the island and its local traditions.
Just like in every successful business, there’s an amazing team that comes together to make it all possible. “Behind this amazing experience we have a close family and a great team of volunteers to keep the horses happy and healthy”. Our mission is to be the best by offering our best service to our guests and all our love to our animals and those in need. Our motivation is to be able to touch everyone we meet by giving a part of our history, culture, and Aruban hospitality. That is now and for always our main principle. That’s why our tours are small, tailored to the riding skill of each rider, giving you the personal touch in every horseback riding adventure.
The Gold Mine Ranch has been recognized by many for service excellence during the past five years. Over 500 guests’ reviews can be viewed on the popular travel website Tripadvisor.com. The travel website has recognized the ranch’s efforts awarding them a Certificate of Excellence for four consecutive years now. The Certificate of Excellence honors hospitality businesses that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on tripadvisor.com. “We have consistently received excellent traveler ratings for 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015”. The TripAdvisor reviews highlight not only the amazing scenery that is experienced while on the tours, but also the excellent customer service the ranch offers its guests. Many travelers have even commented that the Gold Mine Ranch is the best not only in Aruba, but in the world.
Now, The Gold Mine Ranch has been honored once again by being nominated by its guests, this time for the Luxury Travel Guide Global Awards for 2016. This nomination is an outstanding recognition of the hard work, excellent service, and awesome team that comes together to make the Gold Mine Ranch the highlight of your vacation.
