Create an itinerary including Arikok National Park
You can't help but notice waves crashing dramatically into ocean cliffs as you navigate around Arikok National Park. Try touring the park with an all-terrain vehicle or via a Jeep tour to be able to reach some of the more remote places, such as the park caves. The caves feature stalagmites, stalactites, and ancient cave paintings. Take the opportunity to hike in the park while observing the native lizards and wild goats. Bring plenty of water, as the heat is intense. You'll find a restaurant along the way, as well as a beach, but be careful as the waters can get quite rough.

  • This was truly an amazing experience. The caves were really cool, you have to see the beaches and the mountains. You definitely need a vehicle that has 4 wheel drive and high clearance. The hiking can be tough but a must see. The employees were really friendly and helpful. We learned so much from Robert about the park and also the whole island. He made the experience so well worth it. Thank you!!
  • I visited this place with some friends not so long ago and let me tell you..it was very beautiful. I enjoyed being in the nature like that. I can't explain how I felt but all I know it that I felt great and I recommend going so you can feel it too. Tip: Rent a car that you can go off-road with.
