We visited Arikok National Park one morning. On our drive in to the Park visitor center, we observed a young man with a Park uniform on walking in to work. We offered him a ride. Being nice to him really paid off. Rodney said he was called in on his off day and was assigned to the caves. He wound... More

We didn't plan on visiting the National Park but it's the only road that connects the coast to the inland area we were (near the Donkey Sanctuary) so we took the shortest road and drove through ($11/adult and kids under 18 are free). The drive is a bit boring and slow (lots of bumps that force you to slow down)... More

We visted the park on a ATV tour with Cheri Quad tours...it was a long and dangerous 4 hour ride on a ATV in over 90 degree weather going over steep cliffs and very rugged terrain. Venture at your own risk, I would never do this tour again as it is not very safe.

Touring will be limited in Arikok unless you have 4WD, ATV or other off-road vehicle, but we managed to see a lot and have fun just with our Toyota Corolla rental. Start at the visitor center, to learn some basics about the park; the rangers are friendly and will help you make a plan. The dessert foliage is awesome, but... More

We spent a good part of the day driving our Jeep through Arikok. We first went to the Natural Pool from the visitor center. See my review on the pool. After the pool, we drove the loop roads. It was a nice drive with lots of hilly terrain and a few animal sightings. I would have loved to have done... More

This was a very interesting place to go during our two week trip to Aruba. We especially appreciated that this park takes up a fifth of the island, and yet is incredibly untouched. During our visit, the entry fee was $11 per person; it was considered a conservation feet which we were more than happy to pay. The restaurant on... More

This was seriously a boring drive until we got to the most gorgeous view of the island! Then we stopped at the cave and walked all through it. We all loved it and got our beat pics from the water!

Visited the Park as part of a private tour. What beautiful landscape! Mountains and desert meeting the ocean with southwest feel (think Arizona). Very unique. The caves were very cool and got to see ancient Indian paintings. Go for a pedicure. There is a small pond were little fish nibble on your feet! Very cool, doesn't hurt. Great to take... More

We had every intention of exploring Arikok on our own. However, we met Rodney at the main entrance location. He was personable and before we knew it, we had Rodney for ourselves for the remainder of the day. All I can say is he is a walking geography book/map and lives and breathes Arikok. We were so impressed with his... More
