Getting here was a challenge. We took the jeep tour. The views are second to none in Aruba. The Natural Pool is quite impressive, a calm place next to rough seas. There are some fish and the swimming could be good. However, it was quite crowded, so you couldn't really enjoy it. I want to say not to do a... More

If you don't mind driving a Jeep and walking up/down stairs then go visit the natural pool! This place is amazing.... You must rent a Jeep or go on a Jeep tour to visit this. Get ready for off road 4wd! The water is so calm and beautiful! A must see!

Getting here by ATV was amazing and the swim was so relaxing and surreal. The rocks all around made it feel like you were in another world. Try the dive off the highest rock across from where you get into the pool. There are pretty little fish in the pool and harmless crabs on the rocks. Just be careful, it's... More

We enjoyed a "thrilling" (shake and bake) jeep ride to the North side of the Island of Aruba. Included was a "stop" in which we could scuba in a Natural Pool - which was fabulous!

There is no easy way to get there but if you have the time it is well worth the trip you need to bring your swim suit to Fully appreciate this natural beauty

I have seen some beautiful places in my life. Niagara Falls comes to mind. Natural Pool is a place that you work hard in your life to experience. Warning: if you have a bad back--this is not the trip for you. Terrain is treacherous even for expert drivers. Huge boulders that must be driven around and over. If you can... More

We went early on a Thursday morning (we arrived and started out on hike at 830am, and got back to car by noon). We chose to hike. We are not super fit athletes - we (four adults) are healthy and up to a challenge. We knew it would be an hour hike (the check in at the front gate told... More

We drove for 25 minutes on the way to the pool, but decided that even in a jacked-up Jeep with oversized tires, the rocky trip wasn't worth the possible vehicle damage. Do not attempt the ride from the main entrance towards Conchi unless you are a very experienced off-road driver. You've been warned. Conchi; fun to say, but probably not... More

I was looking forward to swimming in the natural pool but it was way too dangerous when we got there. It was beautiful but the winds were unusually high, sending huge waves over the walls that create and protect the pool. A little spray would be ok but huge waves would wrack you over the rocks on the low-side.

The way there is only accessible with a 4x4 suv/jeep and will hurt your back quite a bit. It is 40 minutes of torture without much signalization and if God helps you (or a kind English Speaking tourist along the way does) then you will arrive at the right place. Unfortunately, after a long dangerous stairway down and some slippery... More
