Arikok National Park
The Arikok National Park is Aruba's 34 square kilometers of protected desert wilderness, located a little more than halfway down the Island, stretching from the Island's interior to the north coast. This natural preserve features over 21 miles of established hiking trails, acquainting hikers with Aruba's diverse geological formations, its native flora and fauna, as well as several historical landmarks. Climb Mount Jamanota for a spectacular view encompassing both coasts at once. Explore caves decorated with aged Arawak petroglyphs and see the remains of an early Dutch settlement. Expect to see twisted divi-divi trees, kwihi trees, plenty of cacti, herds of goats, donkeys, iguanas, and several endemic species and subspecies like the kododo blauw lizard, the Aruban rattlesnake (cascabel), the Aruban burrowing owl (shoco), and the Aruban parakeet (prikichi).
