Wild Heart of Aruba

Encompassing nearly 20 percent of the island, Arikok National Park is without question one of the crown jewels of Aruba: a splendidly varied swath of terrestrial and coastal habitats that harbors some of the country's most lauded landmarks. Hike up to Aruba's highest point on the crown of Jamanota hill for a sweeping vista, or penetrate the shrouded limestone innards of Fontein and Quadirikiri caves. Famed coastal features include the Natural Pool, an oceanfront swimming hole protected by rock outcroppings, and the sandy strands of Boca Prins and Dos Playa.

And then there's the almost otherworldly ambience of Arikok's cactus and thornwoods, beautifully desolate-looking but home to multitudes of birds and other wildlife.
