ARIKOK NATIONAL PARK

Arikok National Park is about 18 percent of all of Aruba. Within the park are several caves that have Arawak paintings on them. Some area's are somewhat paved while others are bumpy and dirt roads. Leading into the park are some paved roads, however there are huge dip in the roads, made of stone, to allow for drainage. Most small cars would have a hard time making it down in this dip and back up without dragging or scraping. It's best to rent a truck/atv/4x4.

The entrance to the park and where you pay to get in.
