Begin your comprehensive Aruban adventure with convenient pickup from your hotel in an open-air bus decked out in cheerful Caribbean colors. Sit back and relax, feeling the island breeze and sipping rum punch, soda, or water from the open bar as your guide provides engaging commentary.
Highlights include the remains of the Natural Bridge (collapsed in 2005), the Bushiribana gold mine ruins, the historic Alto Vista Chapel, and the California Lighthouse. Make a stop at each to stretch your legs, have a look around, and take photos while learning history from your guide.
Stop midday for a barbecue lunch at a local restaurant before heading on to see ancient Amerindian petroglyphs at Guadirikiri caves, the unusual Ayo rock formations, and some of the rugged vistas in Arikok National Park. At the southern shore, spend some free time relaxing, sunbathing, and swimming at Baby Beach, where you can rent snorkel gear.
