Please read about some of the most fascinating Aruba attractions.

Alto Vista Chapel


Built in 1952, this tiny chapel now stands on the site of the original Catholic Church in Aruba, built by a Spanish missionary Domingo Antonio Silvestre in 1750.You can reach the bright yellow chapel by following a winding road that is lined with white crosses marketing the Stations of the Cross.

If you happen to be in Aruba on Good Friday, you may want to take part in a pilgrimage that is undertaken on foot by local Catholics living in Aruba.

Ayo Rock Formations


Aruba is bedecked with massive diorite boulders that weigh more than thousand tons and rise up as high as many rural buildings in the area. The massive boulders at Ayo Rock Formations are home to petro glyphs—images that were carved into the rock by the early inhabitants of the island.

The boulders, which leave scientists scratching their heads, offers the adventurous tourist a unique island hiking experience—you might even catch a glimpse of a burrowing owl at dawn or dusk or any number of local lizard species. There are also walkways and paths to help you walk around the maze of boulders so as not to get lost in the splendor of this amazing place.

A visit to these huge boulders is definitely an excellent idea for the avid historian and discerning traveler.

Casabari Rock Formations


Casibari Rock Formations is one of the most popular attractions in Aruba; only second best next to the Natural Bridge. The formations are located in the central part of the island; you can take Highway 4a to Ayo via Route 6a and follow the signs.

Casibari has two sections, the biggest one is Casibari and the second one is Ayo. Both represent Aruba’s Stonehenge with their distinctive shapes, created by the eternal trade of the winds.  Geologists to this day are unsure about their origins, but they suspects that the clash of tectonic plates created these formations forcing these massive slabs into the surface.

Aruba’s government in Casibari constructed walking trails and steps that allow visitors to reach the top of the formation, since constricted tunnels make it a challenge for tourist to get to the top. If a big tourist group tries to go up, reaching the top could take a long time; however the steps and rails in place are a big blessing and make the formations safer and easier to plot.

There is no charge for visiting Casabari.

Bushiribana Ruins – Gold Smelter


The site is the remains of a gold smelter that was built of natural stone in 1825 and operated for the better part of the 19th century. The ruins, now mainly crumbling walls and graffiti, are a major attraction in Aruba. The distinct remote aura surroundings, its toppled walls and barren landscapes are a major landmark for tourists to visit.

It’s said that the smelter, in its 90 years of operation, produced approximately 3 million pounds of gold.
