Great way to see the island. Places you would not see on your own. Wild and crazy ride, but lots of fun. Our driver Angie and guide Roland were fun and informative. The natural pool was a nice relief from the dust but felt great! Be sure to take a bathing suit and towel.

Since our rental car wasn't 4 wheel drive, we parked at the entrance to Arikok and hiked to the pool. Moderate hike on the 4X4 trail (be sure to bring water). When we got there the waves were too big to swim in the pool, which was disappointing. Seeing this side of the island gives you a different perspective of... More

We stopped here on our UTV tour to swim and to jump into the pool. It's a bit slippery getting in there, so watch your step. You can swim to the other side and jump off a big rock (a mini cliff dive so to speak)

The jeep tour was a lot of fun! Saw a lot of the island that would have been difficult to see. The tour guys were very good and made the journey a lot of fun. Our tour driver was Angie, she was wonderful. A lot of fun, gave us a lot of information and answered questions that we had! Would... More

The Natural Pool is a beautiful natural formation in Arikok National Park in Aruba. We did it via a two mile hike. The pool is spectacular and the swimming was delightful. We arranged for a tour with a park ranger and he was very knowledgeable and the tour was free. This was a highlight of out visit to Aruba.

We visited this place on a Jeep tour. The pool was neat to experience, not very big and had a lot of other tours swimming at the same time. After you visit this place once you dont need to go back again. Not easy to get to and you definately need a JEEP to get here. Nice snorkling spot with... More

We went on this excursion with not a lot of expectations just that we wanted to get get a sense of what Aruba was about. Boy was it an adventure...from the minute we got on the jeeps until we got off. Swimming in the natural lagoon was an amazing experience and we snorkelled and saw a lot of interesting fish.... More

Natural pool was pretty but very difficult to get to. DO NOT GO WITHOUT A JEEP/ATV! Pool itself was cool but very wavy with a current. We felt kind of jostled around in there. Still a fun trip to make!

We parked at one of the gates to Arikok Park and decided to walk to the pools (we did not have a Jeep or 4-wheeler, which is how the majority of people were getting there). When we got out to stop walking, the man in the gate was a total downer, telling us it would be an hour hike both... More

On a deserted stretch of coastline, dramatic shows of water spraying over the rock occurs on a regular basis as the tide rushes to shore. In a unique formation of rock, volcanic stone circles a small depression, creating a tranquil pool known as "conchi" or "Cura di Tortuga," or more familiarly by visitors as the Natural Pool. The location of... More
