Explore Nature on Aruba

For a relatively small island, Aruba has a rich diversity of animals and plants, including over 200 bird species and unique dry tropical vegetation unlike other Caribbean islands. The rural areas of Aruba, what the natives call ‘Kunuku’, are home to various forms of cacti and thorny shrubs and local trees like the Kwihi, Divi Divi, and famous Fofoti trees. A guided walk through Aruba’s Arikok National Park is a great way to discover natural wonders like the famous Natural Pool. If you want to see Aruba’s wildlife from up close, both the Philip’s Animal Garden and The Aruba Butterfly Farm are definitely worth a visit.
