Aruba Town & Countryside
Information not currently available.
Approximately 3½ Hours
Explore Aruba from the comfort of an air-conditioned motor coach on this excursion that travels to the California Lighthouse, Alto Vista Chapel, the ruins of the landmark natural bridge, and Casibari Rock Formations.
It’s an approximately 30-minute drive to the California Lighthouse on Aruba’s windward coast. En route you’ll cross the island’s arid terrain -- perfect habitat for cacti, divi-divi trees, iguanas and wild goats.
Stop at the bright-yellow Alto Vista Chapel -- the first Catholic church built on the island in 1750 by Spanish missionary Domingo Antonio Silvestre.
Visit the 'baby' natural bridge—a small bridge of rock formed naturally by the wind and the erosion by the sea. This bridge is located right next to the famous larger bridge that collapsed in 2005. You can still see the remains of this bridge whose demise devastated the locals.
Continue to the Casibari Rock Formations, where giant boulders lie heaped about the landscape. This arrangement gives plenty of food for thought and endless speculation.
Returning to Oranjestad, guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but must return to the ship on their own.
