My wife and I had quite the experience, I would never take a tour with this company again. It was recommended to us by Sheila Hidalgo at the Renaissance Marina Tower. Our Driver's name was Arthur or that is what he wrote on his card. We sat in the back of the Land Rover, just thought it would be more... More

I had a great time visiting the Natural Pool! I wasn't able to enjoy it as much as I should have because the beach shoes provided by the tour operator were too big. It was everyone for themselves to get a pair of shoes. The large shoes don't allow you to get your balance if you stand up after snorkeling.... More

With the natural bridge attraction the East side of the island is not as busy. If your driving yourself look for directions online. Its not marked and cost 20 a person into the national park. This is good for the rest of the park. Bring a snorkel and see the fish. Its really rocky but something neat to see.

Don't adventure without a jeep, the trails are just that... trails! Great fun! Well worth the hike especially with Aruba's weather!

This is a great place to swim and watch the fish as the water rushes in around the rocks. I would only go if you are on an island tour with a tour guide that knows how to drive there. It is a crazy bumpy ride and it is very secluded. It also includes a bit of hiking/elevation if you... More

You must visit this if you're in Aruba. You must! The pool is located in Arikok National Park and costs $10 per person to enter but for us it was a $20 well spent. The trip to the pool requires a 4x4 or an ATV but it's so well worth the trek. We had a Jeep and for someone who's... More

This was an absolutely amazing experience. Booked a tour through De Palm Tours and spent a good hour and a half swimming. U can jump from the higher parts off the rocks into the pool. It takes a little bit of climbing but i was happy about that. A mask and snorkel is perfect here. Lots of marine life packed... More

Rent a jeep and go yourself! We had so much fun getting there. Keep the windows down and take in all the views and by the time you get there you cannot wait to jump in the pool. A major highlight of the trip and so different from the main side of the island.

My family and I had rented a Jeep for the week so we decided to go ahead and drive to the Natural Pool. It was hard finding the entrance to the park (Aruba doesn't really do street signs) but we found it and payed our $10 a person. My brother in law has experience with driving jeeps off road so...
