    We caught a segment about this on TV one day recently. Always fun to see Aruba on TV. Heck, I even like the radio commercials. Anyway, I thought it was odd that they didn't show the stairs and where you park. They also didn't show the area that most people use to get in and out of the pool.
    7 trips in and still finding things to love. #8 will be great in November!

    I'm guessing because it's such a short segment & they need to make it look appealing! lol Those stairs may scare some away!

    The first (and only) time we went I was not expecting those stairs so when we got there it made me pretty anxious. We went down and looked around, but did not get in because I was a nervous wreck and it looked very slippery. I'd like to go back now so Jon and I can both actually enjoy the experience. I probably would still watch from the sidelines. We won't go without a tour because we don't want to risk a flat tire or breakdown back there on our own. I figure next time we go with first timers, we will get there again.

    This picture shows the view from the bottom for those that are not familiar. You park at the top where that sign is and there are uneven and rocky steps to get down and back up to the parking area.

    Certainly very popular place these days even with the stairs, slippery jagged rock and potential danger due to weather
