The Basics

Because it is impossible to reach the Natural Pool by car, you must be game for adventure to get to this natural paradise. Rugged tours in off-road vehicles like 4x4s, ATVs, and UTVs offer the fastest and easiest rides, and often combine a trip to the Natural Pool with other nearby attractions like the Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, California Lighthouse, Baby Beach, Natural Bridge, and Alto Vista Chapel. If you prefer a slower ride, you can travel through Arikok National Park by horseback to reach the Natural Pool, taking more time to enjoy the views of Moro Beach, distinct rock formations, and the Arikok Hills along the way. And if you don't want to rough it, look for a more luxurious Land Rover tour with a driver. Regardless of how you get there, you can enjoy swimming and snorkeling upon arrival.

Natural Pool Horseback Riding Tour in Aruba
Was an excellent tour. I was a little nervous going downhill since I hadn't been on a horse for many years. But it was very safe and the horses know exactly what to do. Swimming in the natural pool was amazing!

Natural Pool & Indian Cave Jeep Safari
I would definitely recommend this tour! Big G and Donny were great tour guides, funny and knowledgeable. The best part was the off roading and snorkeling in the natural pool. Book the morning tour so you can enjoy the delicious lunch. Tip: bring water shoes, towel and sun tan lotion.

Natural Pool & Indian Cave Jeep Safari
The whole trip was amazing. Our knowledgeable Johnny educated us with the history of all the sites we went to. They were very interesting. Jason made our drive very fun. We had preteens and teenagers who enjoyed all the extra bumps, speed, and turns. He added music which made it even better. We loved the cave, fish pedicure pond, and natural pool. We even drove by the historical church with the gold alter and huge boulder. Thanks for an amazing tour. Great tour guide team👍🏽.

Natural Pool, Cliff Jumping & North Coast explorer by UTV
what a great time our tour guide Jose was awesome.. Water was too rough for the natural pool so he took us to another snorkeling spot which was beautiful . The only thing we were disapppointed was about we didnt go to the lighthouse which was on website for a stop. But cliff jumping, natural bridge and church was amazing So much fun !! Lunch at end was delicious too. Thanks Jose we recommend this tour hands down one of the best days

Aruba UTV Tours - New Natural Cave Pool with Cliff Jumping (2 - 3 and 4 Seater)
I didn’t expect to enjoy this as much as I did. The guides were very helpful/informative. However I would have like to have seen more then 4 sites.That’s why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

Jeep Safari and Natural Pool

Natural Pool & Indian Cave Jeep Safari
It was a fun tour overall. The jeep was comfortable but the road is very bumpy and non-stop bumps throughout the entire trip. Loved the natural pool but would not recommend to young children or older people as it requires quite a steep walk and some climbing over rocks to get to the pool. It was very slippery climbing. Wish not so many people in the pool but it’s a popular spot. Lunch provided by our tour was surprisingly good.

Turtle Pool

The Natural Pool is also known locally as “Conchi” or “Cura di Tortuga,” because it is said that the pool was once used to hold sea turtles before they were sold. (Tortuga means turtle in Papiamento, the official language of Aruba.)
