With ruggedly beautiful landscapes and beaches, nearly perfect weather year-round, and a unique cuisine like no other, Aruba is the ultimate getaway! There are countless treasures located all over Aruba, so renting a car is one of the best ways to explore the island while you work up an appetite. The Arikok National Park is home to a diverse wildlife and dramatic landscapes. Established in the 1980s, you’ll find rock outcroppings, gold mines, caves, ponds and remains of old farms and plantations throughout the park. Keep your ears and eyes out for orioles, burrowing owls, brown-throated parakeets, bats and wild goats. Climb through the picturesque Guadirikiri Cave, and catch glimpses of local reptiles like the cascabel (rattlesnake) and the santanero (cat-eyed snake). After you're all dusty, you'll want to clean off by taking a dip in the Natural Pool!
