Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

WHAT YOU VISIT
Casibari Rock Formation
These geological formations add relief to the landscape and a glimpse into the island's ancient past. Casibari boulders are clustered together weighing several tons and creating unique forms. There are walking trails through this rock garden, and a climb to the top of the highest boulder rewards with panoramic views.

Baby Natural Bridge
In 2005, the Natural Bridge, a coral limestone formation chiseled by years of pounding waves and powerful winds, collapsed to the dismay of locals and tourists alike. But a smaller bridge, the intact Baby Natural Bridge, is a structurally sound arch carved out of rock and coral and a photogenic island highlight.

Alto Vista Chapel
A winding road dotted with crosses brings you to the top of a hill on Aruba's north shore, where this brightly painted, yellow chapel stands proudly. Built in 1952 atop an early 18th century, the present chapel is also known as "Pilgrims Church."

California Lighthouse:
Named after the steamship California, which sunk off the coast of Aruba, this iconic old-stone lighthouse, built in 1910, offers picture postcard views of the expansive coastline.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
White crosses marking the Stations of the Cross lead the way to the Alto Vista Chapel. Take time for photos or a walk through the peace labyrinth just a few steps away.

SHOPPING
The "Thirst Aid Stop" at the Baby Natural Bridge boasts a bar, dining area, and a gift shop. Exclusive "Biba Dushi" items are sold at this gift shop.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
From the comfort of the transportation, enjoy views of the heart of Oranjestad. Take in the government offices, Wilhelmina Park, the Boy Ecury Monument, Plaza Betico Croes, and the antique homes that line charming Wilhelmina Street. Then, venture into the countryside for authentic Aruban houses, fishermen's huts, the Dutch Mill, swanky hotels, and Aruba's most beautiful beaches.

Special Notes:

Wear comfortable walking shoes, sun protection and bring cash for restroom usage and souvenirs.
