Jorge, you asked about the natural pool. I just went onto Travelocity to check some information, and under its feature story for today is a picture of the Natural Bridge showing the pool in Aruba. Take a look.

Yes by donkey....... lol if you rent a 4x4 you will be able to drive thru the rough terrain. I have stay in Aruba its well worth seeing if you have nothing else to do for a day. Not much to see and I will almost gurantee you will get lost. The Bridge is well worth the trip but the pool is nothing more then small swimming area, where you can dive off some small cliffs. Hope that helps.

Alot of people were lost. We had an all day tour with ABCJeep tours. Started out with 7 jeeps and ended up with a 15 car caravan. Just kept picking up lost people in the desert!

Natural Bridge and Natural Pool are not the same place. The bridge is accessable by tour bus and regular car , the pools are located beyond the bridge and are generally accessable only by 4wd. The pool is a 100 foot diameter circular pool formed in the rocks sheltered from the rather active surf just on the other side of the rocks.
It's like a good old fashioned swimming hole (very slippery rocks surround it) with the ocean crashing only feet away.
It is funny to see the folks who strike out to find it on there own , who get lost and end up following the organized jeep tours back to civilization.It is even funnier to see the folks
try and negotiate some of the terrain in a Toyota Corolla.
My recommendation is to join the organized tours. You still get to drive the 4wd and you will get taken to several tourist spots, get served lunch and will either end up at De Palm Island or some great beach like Baby Beach. They give you food and drink as well, you won't get lost and you won't be resonsible to a rental car company if you damage a jeep.
I can recommend Depalm Tours and Eagle Jeep Tours.

I agree. We stopped to help a car buried up to the fender from wheels spinning in the sand. It was obvious they were stuck there for the day.
