Not a single review on this website adequately prepared us for the journey to the Natural Pool. My mother insists that attempting to maneuver up the steep hills, deep craters, and jagged rocks the constitute "roads" in the Arikok National Park is the most terrifying thing she has ever done. We were fortunate enough to be able to follow another... More

This was a fun place for our family! We would definitely go again! If you want to swim, you should be a stronger swimmer because it was a little rough at times when we were there. It was beautiful!

The adventure to get to the pool was done with ATV's. Let me tell you, 6 girls on ATV's, most of whom had never driven one, was quite the adventure and a HUGE adrenaline rush. It is quite a treacherous trip to get down to the pool and in the end it was pretty darn worth it. The view was... More

I've been there approx. 3 times. A lot of people go there by bus or by car but we hiked way up to the lagoon. It's a one hour hike through the desert but it's worth it. You get sweaty while hiking but you can refresh yourself in the beautiful lagoon as soon as you arrive there. Don't forget to... More

It truely was an adventure finding the Natural Pool without a tour. Took us a few hours on some pretty dangerous terrain. But we found it and enjoyed a nice hour there. The pool is not very big and gets crowded very quickly especially when a cruise ship is docked in Aruba. Lots of little crabs walking around the rocks... More

My first trip to Aruba brought to this natural pool and our group has been to this pool and our expectations were exceeded. Getting there is a very bumpy ride, but the view and the snorkeling and adventures outway the rugged terrain. We are planning another trip in the fall and definitely heading out there again. Don't miss this location,... More

AMAZING. The photos on TripAdvisor don't do the place justice; probably because it's best not to bring belongings into the pool area because it's dangerous to carry gear while climbing into the pool area and there is no where to put your stuff. You will have to climb over some large jagged rocks to access; please be careful. I am... More
