We traversed the park through an ATV tour ending up at the Natural Pool. It is very rugged, tough trails, but the scenery is spectacular, and totally different from the resorts side of the island. You must do it!!

This was well worth the drive out to it. We were staying in the northern part of the island and had a rental car. The drive through the park on the paved road was ok - get over some of the drainage thingys was rough...More

A natural area that is worth visiting. The beach and dunes are used by many people so it is far from pristine but well kept up by Aruba.

We took our 2 seater four wheeler into the park, a four wheeler is a must if you want to go to Conchi Natural Pool. Awesome park.

After much research we decided to head into Arikok in our rental car. We weren’t planning, nor did we attempt to go to the natural pools. We entered from the south entrance and paid $11pp to get a map, which we already had. I know...More

Its a very dry and ROCKY off-road trail leading to amazing views and the Natural pool. We drove a tour company Land Rover and it was AWESOME. The bumps and terrain are not for the faint of heart though.

Great, wild, rocky and bumpy tracks for ATVs and UTVs are the highlight of the park. Don't miss seeing this natural area that is somewhat wild in its nature
