#1 Thing to Do in Arikok National Park!

The gold mine ranch logo The Highlight of Our Vacation

If you are looking for a fun and different way to see Aruba's Arikok National Park, this is it. Gold Mine Ranch has well trained, beautiful horses, as well as well informed guides can will ensure you are safe and have a great time! You are picked up at your hotel and taken to the other side of the island where they have a small ranch. It doesn't matter what level you are, there is a horse for everyone. They go over what you need to do to control the horse, mainly just hold on as the horses know the trail and do this a couple of times daily.

The gold mine ranch logo Awesome Experience

Great all around experience with the staff and guides on this first ever event for my 10 year old son. It was great to just have a small group of 9. Pickup from the hotel was on time. Each of us were matched with a perfect horse based on our ability. It was very scenic, little trotting, we stopped for pics and really had an enjoyable ride. Jesus made sure my son was always inkinr and doing well and gave him sunglasses for the dusty areas. The sea views were amazing. Highly recommend

The gold mine ranch logo Absolutely Incredible

Literally had the best riding experience today at the Gold Mine Ranch. Johnny picked me up right on time and then I had a private riding session with Jesus. The horses we both had are extremely well behaved but the probably the best part is the scenery. Jesus took me to the ocean was so accommodating and took so many pictures. It was honestly heaven on earth and I am so grateful places like this exist. I highly recommend. I went alone with the guide and felt very safe.

The gold mine ranch logo A Must Do Activity When Visiting Aruba!

The ranch was great, and the horses were well behaved. A must do for a novice right up through an expert rider. Our two girls were a little hesitant at first, but the guides were very knowledgeable and put us all at ease. The ranch could not be better located. It is less than a mile from the ocean, and there were many sites to see during the our horseback ride. The guides even stopped to take photos of our family on our journey. Could not have asked for a better experience during our vacation. A must do activity when visiting the island for everyone in the family.
