To get away from the busy tourist areas, rent a car and explore the Arikok National Park on the East coast of the island. There you'll find out Aruba has more than just beaches and cocktails!

We used our friend's car which wasn't very reliable. It got overheated a couple of times. But then we just waited for 20 min. for the engine to start again and off we went.

It's a great trip. You feel like you're miles and miles awy from civilization and you really don't want your car to break down completely (yes- we were a little afraid...). But the "Jurassic Park Style" scenery is beautiful and pretty unique if you ask me. Enjoy typical Divi Divi Trees, huge cacti, many many lizards and deserted beaches.
