Returns to original departure point
Your full-day Aruba 4x4 adventure takes you to two of the island’s most popular coastal sites: the Natural Pool and Baby Beach. Start with hotel pickup in the morning for the ride to the tour operator’s base, where you meet your guide for a safety briefing before taking off in a caravan of Land Rovers. 

Take a seat in your open-air vehicle—designed with extra-cushioned seats for a comfortable ride—and set out toward Arikok National Park, a protected preserve that makes up almost 20 percent of the island. En route, stop for photo ops of historical and natural landmarks including the California Lighthouse on Aruba’s northern end. Hear about the island’s gold-prospecting days at the Gold Mill Ruins and view Natural Bridge, a limestone formation on the northeast coast that collapsed in 2005. 

Around midday, enjoy a homemade barbecue lunch and then continue to traverse rugged terrain through the national park to the Natural Pool, a coastal swimming hole accessible only to 4WD vehicles. With free time here, snap on your provided snorkel and mask to explore the pool formed by volcanic rock, and refresh with a cool beverage.

Departing the Natural Pool, travel by Land Rover to Baby Beach, a crescent-shaped stretch of shoreline located on Aruba’s southern coast. Enjoy more free time to relax at this Caribbean paradise, using your snorkeling gear to explore the marine life in the shallow, tranquil waters. 

On the way back to your hotel, stop at a few other cultural landmarks including the Alto Vista Chapel and Anchor in Memory of All Seamen for a few photo opportunities.

Stop At:  
Anchor in Memory of All Seamen
At one time San Nicolas was the driving force of Aruba's economy. It relied mostly on the economy of the seas. Many European merchants visited to do trades, but also to exchange with other merchants who were passing through. Later when the refinery opened in San Nicolas, Aruba started to receive mega-tankers to load and unload mostly crude and derivatives. As a recognition of the sailors and marine history, the anchor was placed. The contrast and backdrop are stunning and certainly a must see. Picture Opportunity

Amazing experience. Ask for Tony and Big G. Tony had his music playlist to keep the ride entertaining. At the conchi in Arikok he made sure everyone stayed safe while jumping into the water. Food was also exceptional. Sights were fun. And there was the personal touch from the owner greeting and conversing with us during lunch that made us feel welcome.

Fantastic Excursion

The experience was phenomenal. We visited multiple landmarks and must see locations. 100% worth the money. My tour guides were uncle Johnny, Donny, and Curtis, and they are the best at their jobs. Very knowledgeable and humorous folks. I went solo and had a great time. Go with friends and it’ll be even better. Lastly, the food was amazing (p.s. get the grouper fish). One thing I will point out is that the rise to the natural pool is very bumpy, and if you’re someone who is car sick, this tour may not be for you unless you shotgun (which I did). Otherwise, this experience is totally worth your money and will save you a lot of money from other tours which only cover some of the spots.

I can’t say enough how much we enjoyed the Island Jeep Safari. Uncle Johnny, Donny and Curtis were wonderful tour guides — a lot of fun and so knowledgeable about Aruba and its history. You could tell that they love their job and sharing this beautiful island with us. During the time we spent together we saw so much of the island. We also met some wonderful people that we got to share our Jeep with. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great day in Aruba.

We can not say enough good things about this tour. This was our number 1 favorite thing we did in all of Aruba! After going on the tour there was no reason to rent a car! We saw all of the best sights and some extra freebies!!!! I’m telling you… GO ON THIS TOUR!!! I felt safe we were with experienced drivers who did this every day. If you are not a super experienced driver, DO NOT RENT A CAR/ATV/UTV thinking you will make it…. It is ROUGH up there by the bridge and the natural pool. We kept saying the whole time we were glad we didn’t rent a jeep and try to do this on our own!!! They took such good care of us and made us laugh the entire day. 100/5 stars… ARUBA…ariba!!! ARIBA…. Aruba!!!! ABC… #1!!! Thank you Curtis for being our amazing comic and driver, Uncle Johnny for being our lead guide, and of course the rookie (Brian) for showing us the local snorkeling spot at Baby’s beach… omg we loved it!! Such a great job guys!!!!

Ít was a fun trip, however, my family found the morning session to be wasteful, and the evening session was lots of fun but time was very limited. The tour guides are awesome.
