Had a great time riding ATV's last week with my husband all around the small island of Aruba. We were picked up on time from our hotel and taken to the ranch about 10 minutes away. We did the Baby Beach tour option, which was a blast. We had about 30 minutes of swim time during the tour in the... More

So we rented two AT's and our wives were the passengers. Geert, our guide (and owner) took us on an awesome ride, first though the "desert" side of the island and then through the National Park, which really does not have any driveable paths. It was quite the adventure and the walk down to the natural swimming pool was unique.... More

Had a great adventure on a guided tour with Geert Herbots, the owner of Rancho Notorious. We left for a 2 hour ride and found some rugged single track, surrounded by cactus and other pokey vegetation. We ascended some decent hills and then saw some amazing vistas of the east coast of the island. Geert did a great job of... More

I found this place on-line. I knew it could be good when the web-site mentioned to bring your own bike shoes. I called them and set up a time to ride. From what I found this is the only place that offers any type of single track riding. Our guide Geert was great. We is also a certified mtb coach... More

We had a great ride with our trail guide Wilbur. The scenery was gorgeous and we happened to be the only ones on our tour, which was great. My horse and Wilburs horses were great, but my husbands seemed like he should have been put into retirement a while ago. That aside, the trails were awesome and Wilbur let us... More

Anyone who knows me knows how I love to horseback ride on the beach, even better is running my horse on the beach, although we didn't have enough room on the beach to run, this ride was great. The company sent a car to pick us up at our resort and took us to the site for our ride and... More

We were picked up on time (the only excursion to do so). The ranch is located in a housing division (they were there first) so the trail initially runs behind the houses. The horses were healthy. Our guide was friendly but he was Cuban and barely spoke English. My Spanish wasn't sufficient for conversation. The 2 hour trek is on... More
