Aruba has several areas with decent snorkeling. I read articles before going about snorkeling on your own. We chose to do snorkeling with both the tours we took. In all, we snorkeled in 5 places around the coast of Aruba. I felt safer snorkeling in a group (I’m not exactly an Olympic swimmer) and it was really helpful having people tell me where to look!
Our ABC Island Ultimate Safari tour took us to the Natural Pool and Baby Beach for snorkeling. The Natural Pool is a really special area of Aruba, but it’s only accessible with a 4×4 vehicle and a brave driver. You can reach it with a Jeep rental (if you can find one that doesn’t ban going there in the contract), but I was more than happy to have our tour guide navigate the rocky “road.” Read more about those locations in the Wild Side of Aruba post!
