    We went in June, and used Madi Magical Tours. They can be slow to respond to e-mails, but worst case scenario call them direct when you get on the island. They are very reasonable too compared to other tours.

    Conchi has always been one of my favorite places. From all of my dozen or so visits there, only once was it too rough and dangerous to jump in. We stopped there 3 times on our recent Aruba vacation (just got back) and it has become quite crowded. To enter the Arikok park also requires a fee between 8 am - 4 pm. If you don't mind a 40 min hike you can park before the old park entranc .and just foot it outside of the hours to have the pool for yourself

    The jeep we rented for two weeks there, was a very useful tool. From visiting relatives, to going wherever we possibly could.

    Things can go wrong though (good to be prepared). We were crossing a sandy portion between the windmills and grape beach in 4wd and when I tried to go back in 2wd the linkage snapped loose and the jeep was stuck in neutral. We just called the agency and they sent someone out to fix it. The whole episode only set us back an hour or so, and if I had to choose anywhere the world to be stranded, I was there as grape beach is my favorite beach.

    Would have been a miserable experience however, if we didn't have an emergency contact or cooler of water
