    Hiking

    I am taking a cruise in a few weeks and the first stop is Aruba. I am looking to do some hiking in the 10 hours I am there and maybe some snorkling. I really don't want to take a tour, but would like to do what the locals do. Suggestions?

    Thanks

    the best tour guide for hiking is eddy croes.
    i know you are not interested in a tour, but this one is only 4 hrs and then maybe you can follow it up with a few hours at baby beach or catalina cove for snorkeling .

    eddy croes = http://www.sensitivehikers.com/index...d=21&Itemid=28

    cerry croes = private island tours www.pitaruba.com

    again, i know you do not want tours, but especially the hiking..........this guy eddy is the BEST and was instrumental in paving the way for the national park to be made into a "national park"

    Climb Mt. Hooiberg, for a view of Venezuela, Baby Beach to snorkel, Charlie's Bar in San Nicholas for a cold one. You also could rent a jeep, and do the whole island on your own(stay out of the sand on the rough side!)

    Kenny, that's useful information. We like to hike, too, but I don't see us going with a guide. We like to do our own thing at our own pace. Do you need a 4WD to drive through the park?
