Full description
This is the best way to discover the real Aruba. Nearly 20% of Aruba is a designated National Park and home to a long list of animal species and plant life. The Arikok National Park is a great place to enjoy the dramatic landscapes. The Visitors’ Center has a modern sustainable design and houses an exhibit of Aruba’s endemic animals such as the Aruban whiptail lizard (cododo), Aruban cat eye snake (santanero) and endangered rattle snake (cascabel). Park rangers will escort you on this hike that showcases fascinating flora and fauna and interesting historical sites. The Arikok National Park is home to priceless gems that are rare because they are indigenous to the island. The Aruban burrowing owl (Shoco), Aruban rattlesnake, Aruban whiptail lizar, and Aruban parakeet (Prikishi) can be found in the Aruba National Park where they live together with the native flora and fauna supported by the protected unusual land formations made from lava, quartz diorite and limestone.

La prise en charge s'est effectuée à l'heure, dans un minivan climatisé. Une fois arrivés au Parc Arikok, nous avons fait connaissance avec notre guide de l'agence EL Tour qui nous a fait découvrir un des sentiers du parc. Le guide était sympathique et semblait savoir de quoi il parlait, mais je pense qu'il pourrait encore un peu approfondir ses connaissances. Je suis très satisfait de cette activité, même si je l'ai trouvée un brin trop brève à mon goût, étant donné que nous n'avons passé qu'une heure dans le parc et que j'étais déjà de retour en ville à 11h.

Beautiful hike

Beautiful hike/walk through the Arikok Park. About 1.5 hour long. Rambo was a great tour guide - knowledgeable about the plants and animals/birds in the park. He made the walk extra interesting by his history and stories of the park in days gone by. Not a strenuous walk, and plenty of pauses to gaze at the view or search for an unusual bird siting. Thanks Rambo!!!

Our guide Uri was super friendly and entertaining. He was willing to answer all questions. When one person couldn't keep up with the group, because it was hot and it's a walking tour that involves climbing steps, he waited for them and asked how they were. (And said: don't just say you're fine if you're not actually fine - in a friendly way). Then he invited others to ask him questions to make valuable use of the waiting time. He also asked the person to join him in the passenger seat of the van on the way back. I thought this was all most caring. Be aware, the steps and foot path require sure footing and you need to watch where you're going. Definitely need good shoes/sneakers. We even climbed big rocks for a better view, the guide held back certain plants that could give you a rash upon touching them. The rock paintings and eating a kind of pepper from a cactus were my highlights.
