 After having explored the beaches and sea, it’s time to get dressed and explore the land!

As mentioned in my previous post about Exploring Aruba (if you didn’t read it, you can check it here), Aruba is known for its crystal blue waters and white-sand beaches, however we decided to explore as well the “country-side” of the Island.

During the morning, we explored the Lighthouse situated on the North-West (WestPunt) and the Ayo & Casibari Rock Formations.

These dramatic formations are shaped by boulders some the size of small houses and weighing several tons. The legend told Arawak Indians would visit in order to hear incoming thunderstorms and draw on the rocks.

There was a lot of wind coming (that’s why my hair was all the time moving to my face) but the view on the rocks’ top definitely worth the visit.

The fauna and vegetation was not much comparing with Grenada or Dominica, however I really enjoyed the fact it was composed by cactus and divi-divi trees (which remembered me a little the American Far West, I admit).

Aruba is definitely the perfect destination if you want to relax in a good resort, enjoying good restaurants (there is a very nice Italian called La Trattoria El Faro Blanco just front the California Lighthouse with an amazing sea view) and have fun with their tons of water and underwater activities.

If you have any question, feel free to ask by leaving us a comment or if you know Aruba, recommendations are welcome! I will be very pleased to read and reply back.

Wish you all the best. See you very soon!

Xoxo, Melanie
