Top Highlights

The Natural Pool

Aruba boasts a peculiar natural phenomenon known as the "Natural Pool" or "Conchi," nestled within Arikok National Park. This hidden gem is a secluded basin formed by volcanic rock formations, shielding it from the rough sea waves. Accessible only by rugged terrain or horseback, the Natural Pool offers a serene oasis for swimming and snorkeling amidst the wild beauty of Aruba's coastline, making it a truly enchanting and exclusive experience.

An Unique Dish

Aruba's culinary landscape is influenced by its diverse heritage, featuring a unique dish called "Keshi Yena." Originating from Aruba's colonial past, this savory delight consists of a hollowed-out Edam cheese filled with a flavorful mix of meats, spices, and vegetables, then baked to golden perfection. Symbolizing the island's fusion of cultures, Keshi Yena is a mouthwatering testament to Aruba's rich history and culinary ingenuity.
