    In this cave you can see several drawings of the original Indians, unfortunately also find others that they need to make their "drawings" at there.. In addition, this cave near the last fresh spring of Aruba.

    Council a brief stop in this tiny hollow, very dark, to see the formations due to the work of the water inside. You are driving safely while visiting the Arikok National Park.

    This was worth the visit. I went on a tour so the entry fee was included in the tour price. Very different than some of the caves in the US. There are some interesting photos that can be taken in the ...  more »

    Cave not as impressive as the other in the park, but a national park guide provided a short (10 minute) tour that reviewed the historical significance of the park and explained what all of the cave drawings were and meanings behind them. Guide even took our picture at a few places where the natural light allowed for an amazing pic.

    An old cave, that is much deeper than you'd expect. If you are willing to walk a ways back with a guide he/she can show you some really old cave markings which is really cool to see.

    A small fun cave to explore and to learn about it's historic drawings in the cave. The other cave in the park is much more magnificent and impressive if you dare going in 100 meters or so. Entry fee to the park is $11 per adult, children under 17 are free. North side entrance has a nice visitors area, free wifi and restrooms before you head into the park. Unless you have an ATV, be prepared to go at 10-15 km/hr as roads in the park are v small with frequent speed stoppers /water flow drains for first 15-20 mins. Park ranger Stan Tromp is the friendliest, highly knowledgeable and engaging young man we met. We spent about an hour talking with him on local history, world war 2 and Arubas relevance to it and many other topics. It's pleasure meeting genuine people like Stan who go out of their way to share their knowledge about the Island. Stan is second generation local who values the Islands history and aspires to be an Ecologist. Pls support his cause in anyway if you can. Thank you Stan for the great afternoon discussion!!

    Worth the drive. Park ranger was friendly and very engaging. Was a really nice break from relaxing on the beach all day ;)

    Interesting stop. Been here twice. First time went down a side cave that was open and saw tons of bats!
