Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
You can't help but notice waves crashing dramatically into ocean cliffs as you navigate around Arikok National Park. Try touring the park with an all-terrain vehicle or via a Jeep tour to be able to reach some of the more remote places, such as the park caves. The caves feature stalagmites, stalactites, and ancient cave paintings. Take the opportunity to hike in the park while observing the native lizards and wild goats. Bring plenty of water, as the heat is intense. You'll find a restaurant along the way, as well as a beach, but be careful as the waters can get quite rough.

  • Super interesting to get into this park. I've been a luxury, with a guide who is director of the Park. I heard several data mu interesbates dress. Historical, demographic, about nature. Mines, cacti, species, is super dry and amazing cactus species! Animals that you can have but all protected cultural.

  • An absolute gem in Aruba. I went to this park with ABC Tours and it did not disappoint. If you will he in Aruba you must visit this park.
  • The park is small and can easily be explored in a day. Easy to get around but I would suggest a jeep because of the speed bumps and if you want to take the smaller roads to the caves or lookout.
  • Multiple great sites and a wonderful way to spend the day.
  • Cool place to drive through. The road is paved but there are little drain dips in the road so go slow.
  • We went four wheeling and had a blast! Lots of terrific trails!
