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 will showcase fascinating flora and fauna and interesting historical sites.

The Arikok National Park is home to priceless gems that we know are rare because they are indigenous to our island. The Aruban burrowing owl (Shoco), Aruban rattlesnake, Aruban whiptail lizard, 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.

Aruba’s national park also protects bats that have their home inside caves with authentic Arawak Indian drawings for you to decipher.
