We visited the Natural Pool as part of a half day jeep tour with ABC Tours. It does require some walking and there were a couple of folks in the tour that didn't want to make the trek down the stone staircase to the pool. The Natural Pool is a great place to snorkel as the fish aren't scared at... More

Loved going there. Will definitely go back. We went on a VIP Tour in a Ford FJ Cruiser and was able to go all the way down to the natural pool, whereas people going on a jeep tour had to walk down 87 steps to get to the natural pool. Ours was a much nicer experience.

You need to take a UTV tour or Jeep Tour to get here. I would not recommend renting a jeep as insurance does not cover damage done going here and the roads are very bad.

I would recommend getting here by hiring a tour. We did and I site glad we did. ( de pal tour) was our choice but there are many to choose from. The location is inside of a park and the terrain is Rough ! The joke it's the roller coaster of aruba and they were right. It's bumpy. And fun... More

Absolutely amazing tour! I loved watching the huge waves hit the rocks. I could sit there for hours if I could. The tour was by Jeep and very bumpy because of rocks and desert roads. Not recommended for anyone with spine issues. Otherwise, great trip!

If you cannot walk well or climb steps or climb over slippery rocks this may not be a trip for you!! Water shoes are needed! the... More

So after renting the jeep and agreeing not to go to the Natural Pool. The first thing I did was begin to ask for directions on how to get there. Trust me, if you are not OK with 4x4 rugged off roading then you should not be looking for the natural pool. But... It was truly magnificent. The smell and... More

WOW, what an adventure to pool by 4 wheeling in the rented jeep and a great driver, my sweetheart Michael. He help me rock climb the stairs and way to pool. He was able to go up to the "hot tub" and then jump into the pool. We had so much fun we came home and took a nap. We... More

There's no way to get here in a taxi so plan to rent a jeep or something similar. The view is amazing and once you reach the natural pool you will feel like you just discovered a little piece of heaven. There were so many fish in the natural pool and since we brought our snorkling stuff we were able... More

Seas were TOO high for us to take a dip, but none the less, it was stunning. The ride out to was very rough, but worth it.
