One of the Caribbean’s many islands, Aruba is widely recognized for its unique landscapes, beautiful beaches, and wreck-diving opportunities. The island has a huge variety of attractions to keep visitors busy and a few examples are included below:
- Alta Vista Chapel: Also called the Pilgrims Church, the Alta Vista Chapel is located along the northern shore of the island. It was built in 1750 by a Spanish missionary and provides visitors with great views of the north shore from the hills above.
- Boca Prins: A popular spot for picnicking, Boca Prins is located in Arikok National Park near the Blue Lagoon and Fontein Cave. The area is surrounded by large sand dunes and limestone cliffs, but it is too dangerous for swimming.
- Rancho Daimari: Located on the site of an old coconut plantation on the northeast coast of Aruba, Rancho Daimari offers horseback adventures to such areas as the Natural Pool and Andicuri Beach. The terrain can be fairly steep, but all riding abilities are still welcomed.
