We've been to the Natural Pool in Aruba twice. It is by far the best place on the island. I have not been every where in the world. But, I would have to say it is one of the best places in the world. I love the enclosed pool of sea water surrounded by the beautiful rocks. And the water... More

We rented a jeep and drove to pool. Pictures showed people about to jump from rocks. This is more like rocks enclosing a section of the water! No mineral water here! The dangerous drive down the mountain is not worth it! Certainly not for the intimidated driver! Very rough, rocky, one lane terrain with no clear tire marks! We spent... More

Many of the car rental companies make you sign a waver that says you will not visit here.YOU SHOULD VISIT HERE. We downloaded directions that were 3 years old and included a pack of goats as a way finding point. They were still valid and it was hot and the trip took a long time but it was worth it.... More

We went to the Natural Pool during the Sunrise Tour with Club Arias. We got there before all the tour bases and had the pool to ourselves. It was amazing. The fish were beautiful and feeding them was awesome. The scenery was breathtaking and undisturbed. This is a must. Going on the Sunrise Tour is a must. All the tour... More

THE BEST and only way other than a tour group to get to this hidden gem is to grab a rental Jeep and go four wheeling all through the aroikok National Park. the trip is half the fun and the awesome cool down soak and swim in this little inlet protected from the HUGE waves is definatly worth the trip....

Had a friend from the Renaissance drive us in his Jeep to this site. The most life before me trip by jeep I have ever had. Very dangerous, DO NOT RENT A JEEP AND THINK YOU CAN MAKE THIS TRIP. EXTREMELY DANGEROUS!!! No kidding, great site to see, but there is a hike from the closest to the pool you... More

What a treat it was to go there for sunrise. The sea life was beautiful and worth getting up to go there at the crack of dawn.

Since our last trip the signage has improved to the Arikok park, lots of entrances. We entered at Shete, it appeared that the road had been plowed and improved slightly, only until we got to the top of the hill. Then the same really bumpy ride. Take your time, need 4x4 for get to the pool, but its worth it.... More

Make no mistake you need a good 4x4 and need to know how to put it in 4 wd and 4WD low ratio, however once you know this, go for it. The road is really rocky and rutted but can be done slowly to stop too much bumping around. Once down the steep hill, you park up and walk down... More
