    And you have summed up Madi's world perfectly!

    I'm not sure I'd take a 5 yr old. I had trouble hanging on during the ride to the Natural Pool -- the road is that bad! And to get into the pool to swim is a somewhat difficult climb over rocks and then the water is kind of deep and not always calm! Just my own opinion, but I'd wait a few years!

    Madi is taking 4-5 days to respond as indicated by others. The really odd thing is I had two back to back questions answered where she called herself Madi in the first response, but then the next email was Mady? ??
    Next Aruba trip in

    Has anyone ever walked to the Natural Pool? I have been there once on a jeep tour and absolutely hated the rough ride. I vowed I would not go again.

    However, when I had a guided walk in the Arikok Park, the guide, called Rambo said that he walks there. He said if you set off around 7am, it takes about an hour and a half (that's maybe for him!) and an hour and a half back so back by noon. He said that he does guided tours. I wonder if it is worth a try????

    omgosh stella it would be a difficult hike.
    if you are in good shape (and you are!) then a definite maybe.

    me, i know i cannot even walk the 1 mile from my house to the clubhouse and pro shop here in the heat. i could never imagine doing it in AUA.

    what about the lions, tigers and bears (oh my) that could come out of the cactus and eat you? ;-)
