Recommendations for second Aruba visit


Recommended Posts

We visited Aruba in March and will return this December, In March, we took the Azamara "Best of Aruba" tour, which included the Aloe factory, the Casibari Rock Formations, the California Lighthouse, and the natural bridge. We're looking for something new to see on this trip. Can anyone suggest a tour or some destinations that would add to our understanding of the island? Looking at the various guides, the Ayo Rock Formations, Arikok National Park, and the Natural Pool look interesting. Are there tours we could book that include those? Are these feasible for someone who can't do a lot of walking or handle bumpy rides? One catch is that we'll be there on 24 December and we guess that may limit our options.


Thanks for any help.

Definitely do not go to the Natural Pool.  The ride is extremely bumpy and jarring.  You have to make your way (walking) down over slippery rocks to enter. Sometimes, the water us too rough to enter.


Being Dec 24th, your options will probably be extremely limited. Most of the taxi drivers will be off, and probably some of the tour group operators won't be working. There might be some working in the morning,  but most will stop working early. Your best bet would be to look for another tour, but probably most will go to places that you've already been.  Don't do any tours that require a 4 wheel drive vehicle because they will be doing a lot of off roading.
