The topic of this site is pretty obvious; however, I don’t want you to miss out on other nicer sites in Aruba. The other day I drove down to Aruba’s National Park.
When people hear “national park” automatically they assume that it refers to some kind of forest. However, if you are familiar with Aruba, you might already know that Aruba is an island that has little sub-tropical vegetation. In fact Aruba has little vegetation.
The pictures above show actually some vegetation. The last few weeks it has been raining a lot, consequently the vegetation is in decent shape. For now.
Arikok National Park is was created almost 10 years ago to be an area protected for nature and for us to admire. It covers approximately a quarter of the island and it is managed by park rangers. The park has couple of sites, such as the highest and second highest elevations, spectacular beaches, caves etc. On a lucky day you might catch a glimpse of a few exotic animal that live in the park, such as eagles, boa’s or rattle snakes.
