Eagle Beach, exploring the "Outback", Madi's tour to the Natural Pool , dinner at Papiamento's
On our first visit to Aruba we rented a little sedan, and did a lot of exploring, and ended up in parts of the Arikok! It was sometimes a little scary, but we made it through! This year we rented a Rav4, and went off to see the "outback" -- wouldn't you just know most of the roads have now been widened and actually made drivable!
I know I need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to go to most attractions on the NE side of the island but can I get around the national park in my little Toyota rental?
I only rent a small car when on Aruba and I drove to most of the attractions on the NE side. The road is a bit bumpy going to the Natural Bridge but it's doable. I drive there every time when on Aruba. Actually, I drive a LOT as I love exploring the island.
Going to the Natural Pool is difficult, even with a 4 wheel drive vehicle.
