Petroglyphs at Fontein Cave in Aruba's National Park


With nearly 8,000 total acres, Arikok National Park is located in northeastern Aruba. Of the island's total land mass, almost 20% falls within the boundaries of the national park. Exploring the park gives visitors a glimpse into Caribbean culture, history and geology while being surrounded by a backdrop of awe- inspiring scenery.

Have you ever explored Arikok National Park while in Aruba?

We've been to Aruba several times on cruises, and usually spend our time near the beautiful water. During our 2019 cruise, we rented a car on one of our port days in Oranjestad and spent part of the day at the national park.

Of the two caves that we explored, Fontein Cave was our favorite! Park Ranger Danny was stationed at the cave entrance and he led us on a small group tour. We were surprised to learn that the Indian pictographs that we saw inside are between 800 and 1100 years old.

Would exploring Arikok National Park be something you would want to do - or would you prefer beach time?
