Description

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

WHAT YOU VISIT:
Ayo or Casibari Rock Formations
On the flat island of Aruba, there is an unusual presence of huge monolithic boulders and towering rock formations. 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.

Beach Break
With turquoise waters lapping against sparkling white-sand beaches fringed by swaying palm trees, Aruba's famous beaches offer swimming, snorkeling and pure tropical relaxation.

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

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.

WHAT YOU WILL SEE ALONG THE WAY:
From the comfort of the motorcoach, enjoy views of the heart of Oranjestad. Take in the government offices, Wilhelmina's Park, 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:

Tour sequence may vary, but the beach stop will always be last. Wear a swimsuit and bring a towel and adequate sun protection. Chairs are available for rent on a first come first serve bases. In case of rough sea conditions, the beach stop may be cancelled with alternative stops offered. Restrooms are available at the Natural Bridge ruins for 50 cents, a local custom.
