ALTO VISTA CHAPEL

The picturesque Chapel of Alto Vista was the island’s first Roman Catholic Church, built in 1750 and reconstructed in 1953. The small, bright yellow chapel is reached by a winding road, lined with white crosses marking the Stations of the Cross.

CASIBARI ROCK FORMATIONS

Casibari’s huge tonalite boulders sit together in an area just north of Hooiberg. This rock formation rises up from the desert soil to create an unusual setting and spectacular photo opportunities. Some of the boulders weigh several tons and feature peculiar forms. The Government of Aruba has created walking trails and steps through the boulders, allowing hikers to reach the top to obtain breathtaking views of the island.

CALIFORNIA LIGHTHOUSE

Found on the north side of the island, the hilltop landmark was built in 1914 to warn ships nearing Aruba. Also known as “Hudishibana,” it was named after an American steamship that wrecked off the shore in the late 1800s. The lighthouse was completely renovated in 2018 and is in operation today. It opened up for visitors again, the views are stunning and it is a great place to watch the Caribbean sunset.

In the 1400s and 1500s, adventurers traveled throughout the Caribbean in search of wealth and treasure. According to legend, Aruba’s name comes from “Oro Ruba,” which means “red gold.” In 1824, gold was finally discovered in Aruba, and the industry produced more than 3 million pounds of gold. Today, remnants of this history can be seen at places such as the Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins on the northern coast. The abandoned gold mill once processed ore from mines in the nearby hills during Aruba’s gold rush of the 19th century.

BUTTERFLY FARM

The Butterfly Farm offers exceptional views of countless varieties of winged wonders, with educational exhibits on the miracle of metamorphosis and great photo ops. This lovingly tended tropical garden is a lush Eden filled with colorful butterflies from all around the world.

The Natural

Bridge

For thousands of years, pounding waves and strong winds have slowly chiseled away at the limestone cliffs along Aruba’s north coast to create several natural bridges. The largest used to be the famous Natural Bridge, which collapsed on September 2, 2005. Despite this, it is still the most photographed natural bridge and it remains a tourist attraction in Aruba, with the adjacent intact Baby Bridge also meriting a visit.

1. FORMER NATURAL BRIDGE The natural arch (as it used to be), measuring approximately 25 feet (7.6 m) high and 100 feet (30 m) long, was the remnant of an ancient cave.

SIGHTSEEING

2. COLLAPSED NATURAL BRIDGE Since the collapsed bridge is now blocking the ocean from the beach, magnificent views of the waves bursting against the rocks can be seen from the bay behind the ruins of the bridge. 3. WORTH A VISIT The beautiful building at the Natural Bridge has an Aruba country home look and feel, which is typical of the old-style homes on the island. The interior includes state-of-the-art restrooms, a nice bar, gift shop and sitting areas. One of the most unique features are the panoramic views to the ocean and the surrounding hills right from the sitting areas which are created by a series of big windows. The view is second to none. This is also one of the reasons the Natural Bridge is the most unique location for a private event. 4. LOCAL SNACKS AND BEVERAGES Taste delicious Pastechis (local snack), fresh made Dutch waffles from two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel syrup filling in the middle, fluffy Poffertjes (mini pancakes) and sandwiches. The bar includes a wide selection of alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages.

5. THE GIFT SHOP Offers unique souvenirs and the very popular Biba Dushi and Aruba Rescue lines of apparel. The bar includes a wide selection of alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, snacks, sandwiches and ice cream. The Natural Bridge is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is worth the trip especially if you have not been there in a long time. 6. TOURING THE NATURAL BRIDGE The Natural Bridge and Baby Bridge are a stop during many island tours and can also be reached with your own car. The roads are not perfectly paved but a 4WD is not necessary. The Natural Bridge is just a little farther down from Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, passing the Ostrich Farm. From the Natural Bridge you’ll have a view to Andicuri Beach. This beach, though, can only be reached with a proper 4WD or organized off-road safari. For tours to the Natural Bridge by bus, see page 40 and by offroad vehicles, see page 32. DI SCOVE R A R U BA TOUR S , D I N I N G & S H OP P I N G

BUTTERFLY FARM

This is one of Aruba’s best and most unusual attractions — a close encounter with nature in all its beauty and diversity. Step into a tropical garden teeming with butterflies from around the globe, and prepare to meet some of the world’s most colorful and beloved creatures. During the 25-minute tour, led by expert guides, the life cycle of these fascinating insects is thoroughly described, from the egg to the caterpillar, to the chrysalis and to the butterfly. The Butterfly Farm and its unique gift shop are conveniently located at Palm Beach, across the street from the Aruba Phoenix Hotel. Photography is welcome. The attraction is open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with the last tour of the day at 4:00 p.m. Don’t forget your camera.

“Thanks for a wonderful time!” This is a sentiment echoed by Rancho La Ponderosa’s many satisfied riders. The difference is in the quality of both horse and trail, and the more than 30 years of experience of owner Luis “Lucho” Claro, one of Aruba’s most respected horsemen. Lucho will provide the perfect horse to match your skill level. From the saddle of one of his private stock of well-cared-for horses, you can enjoy the natural beauty of Aruba from scenic trails. Ponderosa offers an experience unequalled by any other riding establishment, with groups taken to sites that include Wariruri Beach, Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins and the famous Ostrich Farm.

“It took him a personal journey through business.”

Stefan Legger arrived in Aruba in November, 1992. He grew up in the Netherlands, where he completed his education in Hospitality at the Hotel Management School in Groningen. Ever since he was a young kid, he had the desire to have a profession in the catering industry. It only took him three weeks after his arrival to get his first job in Aruba, and at the age of 25 he had already gained a lot of experience by working at several restaurants. This experience helped him become a partner in various restaurants. He is currently the owner of Matthew’s Beachside Restaurant, M’s Crepe Shack and Santos Coffee with Soul.
