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.

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

Our host Jason, along with team Ray and Ryan made this the best part of the tour. They gave us the perfect amount of information, and made us laugh the whole time. The ride was very adventurous. The ride will have you shaking your maracas, but I always felt safe. The sights were beautiful. Every stop and site was wonderful to see. I am already planning my next trip back, but this time with my kids and the first thing I want to do is book another tour with ABC. The lunch was also really good! Make sure you dont forget to bring plenty of $$ for some of the stops as well as taking care of the guides... they are worth it!! Oh and make sure you bring water shoes with good grips, they will come in handy.

A Much-Needed Break from the Beach Resorts
Hiko_M

This was such a great, engaging way to see the rest of the island in one day. Snorkeling in the Natural Pool and at Baby Beach was fantastic - I've never seen so many beautiful fish up close! Luckily, I only had three other people in my jeep, so it felt like a more intimate experience, especially with Tony and Big G as great guides. Be sure to buckle up - the paths to some of the destinations on this tour are REALLY bumpy!

Aruba at its finest!

We had a great time on the jeep safari island tour! It was a full 9 hour day with hotel pickup/drop off with travels near and far. Nice cushioned seats with storage below with unlimited cold water available. The ride was super fun and INCREADIBLY bumpy and off road. Lunch was delicious and we enjoyed getting to know all of our jeep mates for the day. We had ample time to explore all of our stops (lighthouse, chapel, ruins, cave, a fun surprise at Dos Playa, snorkeling in the natural pool, and baby beach. Our Driver and guides were fun and knowledgeable about the Aruban history and culture, we would absolutely recommend ABC Tours for this Aruba Island adventure!!!

Great day in the sand, sun and surf

Tony, Big G and Nolan were a blast. They work well together and made the whole long day so much fun. We felt like we saw most of the island’s hidden treasures. The lunch was surprisingly good. Make sure to try the owners own hot sauce if you like spicy on your food. If you have the nerve they may offer you cliff diving at one of the spots. The guides will jump With you and they have a float for you to grab when in the water. Make sure to bring a gaiter/goggles as there is a ton of dust. The front car is better to be in if you can’t handle the dust flying at your face.

The best full day island tour!
Libby_S
, Oct 2021
This full day Jeep tour of the island of Aruba was absolutely amazing and worth every penny. We got to see so many things that make Aruba special and our tour guide Wally was fantastic. He was personal and friendly and provided such a great atmosphere for everyone. I highly recommend for anyone looking for an adventure. I do also recommend wearing a bathing suit under your clothes, and bringing water shoes as some of the stops included climbing on slippery rocks.
