Frequently Asked Questions

01. How long in advance should I book your off-road tours?

Our off-road tours are popular and tend to fill up fast especially during the busy months from January to April and June to September. We suggest either booking your tour online by clicking on the Book Now button on this website or shortly after arriving in Aruba at your concierge or activities desk in the lobby of your hotel or at one of our other locations.

02. How long are your off-road safaris?

We offer three different types of off-road tours. A half day jeep safari of about 4.5 hours (goes out twice daily), a full day jeep safari of about 7 hours and a half day UTV tour of about 3 hours (twice daily).

03. What is the difference between a bus tour compared to a jeep or UTV tour?

Some of the stops are different and clearly our jeeps and UTV go off-road where the bus isn't. Our buses are air-conditioned and more comfortable than our jeeps and UTV's, which are open air. Our jeep and UTV tours appeal to the more adventurous whereas our bus tours are more appealing to those who seek comfort, or those with very young children. All options provide you with a wonderful overview of Aruba. Details can be found with the tour descriptions on this website.

04. What are the different stops at each off-road tour?

Our Natural Pool jeep tour goes to: the Natural Pool, Natural Bridge (bar, restrooms and souvenirs available), Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, Wariruri, Alto Vista Chapel and California Lighthouse.

Our Baby Beach jeep tour goes to: the Ostrich Farm, Ayo Rock Formations, Donkey Sanctuary, Black Stone Beach, Caves at Arikok National Park and Baby Beach (snorkel stop). This tour includes lunch.

Our UTV adventure goes to: Ayo Rock Formations, Andicuri, Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, Alto Vista Chapel, Wariruri and California Lighthouse.

05. What side of the road do you drive on in Aruba?

On Aruba we drive on the right hand side of the road. Speed limits are posted in kilometers, at intersections traffic coming from the right has the right of way (except with designated signs) and right turns on red are prohibited.

06. What is the condition of the road during the off-road safaris?

The off-road section leading to, and departing from, the Natural Pool is very bumpy and requires to drive carefully. This section is approx. one mile (1.6 km) each way. The rest of the tour is mainly off-road but not as bumpy.

The roads on the Baby Beach jeep tour are much easier to drive on and this tour is best described as a soft adventure.

Some parts of the UTV adventure are steep and bumpy, but overall this tour is easy to drive. With this self-drive tour it's important to follow the instructions of the guide though.

07. Do I need an international drivers license?

A valid drivers license from your country of residence is accepted.

08. Do you offer self-drive tours?

Our UTV adventure is a guided self-drive tour. Our jeep tours are all guided with chauffeur and not self-drive.

09. Can we rent a jeep or UTV with De Palm Tours and explore on our own?

De Palm Tours does not rent out vehicles for self exploration on the island, only guided tours are offered where you will receive history facts and other information at the different stops.
