We rented a jeep, and were able to explore the park without waiting on anyone else to give a tour or directions. It was breath taking! The jeep ride was very fun for my fiance, yes he proposed in the park too!! The natural pools are amazing, you can swim in them and see some amazing fish! We did not... More

A very cool tour that shows some great ancient drawings as well as some of the more recent history of Aruba. We drove through and enjoyed the entire time. One of our favorite stops on Aruba.

We found the drive through the interior of the park boring. There is not anything to see but lots of cactus and billy goats which were quite fun to see. There are water gullies every hundred or so feet making for a somewhat unpleasant drive in a jeep. There is no good signage and we ended up missing the exit... More

To be honest, "Poor" is not an on-the-money rating for Arikok. "Fair" is more like it, but that's not a rating option. In any event, I didn't particularly enjoy the experience. First of all, you have to rent a 4-wheeler. You cannot drive in the park without one and even a Jeep doesn't really do the trick. A mule would... More

sit on the little benches, take off your shoes and slip your feet into the water to have the tiny fish give you a Natural Pedicure, warning, "it tickles"!

Www.fulltankofgasblog.com 5 things I did in Aruba. Took a little while to find the park. I suggest getting good directions there. 4 wheel drive is a must. Park rangers were very friendly and clearly passionate about their work. Caves close at 3:30. $11 per person.

Yes, the best we had was at Fort Sumter but the crew here was almost as great. They were very nice, informative and passionate. If you go to the caves, get a guide. If you don't your going to zip in and out and not see some cool stuff. The wind turbines were neat, and the drive to the Aircraft... More

I can't begin to tell you how gorgeous Dos Playa, Boca Prins, and the Natural Pool area is in Arikok !!! We loved this tour, even the caves, which I don't usually like. The water crashing on the rocks made for the most beautiful pics here and a swim in the Natural Pool is just what was needed on a... More

We drove a car through the National Park which limited where we could go, but ATV rentals are available to see more of the Park and have more of an adventure than available if you drive a car. Still in the car we got a good feel for the natural Aruba. We saw the desert, the cactus, the wind turbines,... More
