Best UTV excursion EVER!! We had a great tour guide, we got dirty and got to sample sites of Aruba. Only suggestion is to warn people to bring eyewear or have goggles for sale cheap ($5).

Did the NATURAL POOL & ARIKOK NATIONAL PARK BY UTV off the Carnival Pride early March 2017. Guides were Julissa, Justin and Julio. Julissa is a one lady show, she picks you up from the port, drives the bus, leads the entire group and drops you back off. She is super friendly along with Justin and Julio. I felt safe during the entire excursion. The UTV's appear to be in good order with no maintenance issues seen. This trip goes through both city streets and off road sandy/rocky areas. We were not able to go in the Natural Pool as safety would have been a concern, high winds and large waves. The other two stops, one at a beach and another at a church are okay. They provided water, a snack and a bandana to cover from the dust. All in all, this is one of my top excursions out of many. Julissa even taught us some words in what I believe is Papiamento, overall great guide and great time. Thanks for all the fun....

Interesting tour with a very good guide, Michael. One of the caves is inaccessible if one I'd mobility-challenged. No restrooms in the NP. Take note.

Run and book the Outback and Natural Pools adventure by Jeep! It's a raucous ride through the deserted outback of Arikok State Park and a tour through the bat caves and breathtakingly spectacular coastline and dip in the amazing natural pools. This tour was the highlight of the cruise.

Saw the natural bridge over the water. The large bridge has fallen down, the smaller one is still nice but just an okay stop. This might be a good area to explore on your own.

We rented a car and went on our own. It's a short drive from Orenjestad and well worth it. It's a beautiful park with varied scenery: hills, desert, shrubbery, shoreline, dunes, rocky formations, and a cave with indigenous paintings.

Another hit on the trip-the unique rock formations are astounding and the park itself is magnificent in its desert spender. A great stop.

After a pleasant 40 minute De Palm Tours drive through the desert landscape of very low brush and tall cactus; well narrated by Gino. Arriving at "trail head" we were met by a park guide for a leisurely stroll down a paved or manicured pebble path to an old farmhouse being reconditioned using cactus skeletons and mud mixed with grass. Gino provided better commentary of the countryside's plants and animals (bats, birds and lizards) then the park guide. Passengers from two Princess ships were crammed into the bus and tour. There should have been more guides and smaller groups for the tour. Then we were off to a pleasant beach for a quick swim and back to the ship with no time for shopping (fine with us).
