Aruba Full Day Jeep Tour: Enjoy a unique (and bumpy) off-road tour of Aruba's highlights in a four wheel drive jeep. The 2 door jeep provides access to numerous outstanding locations not accessible by standard vehicles. The jeeps are automatic and hold 4 guests only. If you have less than 4 in your group, your guide will match you up with others. Guests drive their own jeeps and there will be several chances to stop and switch drivers. Guests wanting a private jeep will need to purchase all 4 seats.
Heading out, you will follow your professional and friendly tour guide in their lead jeep as they lead you on a comprehensive tour where you will visit the California Light House, named after a ship called the Californian, which has the distinction of having received distress signals from the Titanic as she went down in icy waters in 1912. After the California Light House you will make a short stop at the Rock Garden. A garden of stacked rocks created tourists like you over the past years. This stop also gives a great view of the rough North Coast.
Your next stop will be Alto Vista Chapel, The chapel was built on the site of the first Catholic church built in Aruba in 1750 by a Spanish missionary. It is a special place for peace and contemplation, surrounded by the Aruban countryside. After the Alto Vista Chapel you will travel to the Baby Natural Bridge. A formation of coral limestone cut by years of pounding surf. Next you will get a chance to find some gold at the Bushiribana gold mine ruins. The Bushiribana smelter was built in 1872 by the Aruba Island Gold Mining Company to extract gold from the ore that was being mined in the nearby hills of Ceru Plat. It operated for ten years.
Afterwards you will visit the famous Ayo monolithic Rock Formation where you can see some ancient Indian drawings left behind by the original inhabitants of Aruba. You will then make your way to a restaurant where you will be served a local BBQ lunch. Next you will drive through the famous Frenchmen's Pass on your way to the famous Baby Beach for some swimming, tanning and snorkeling (Snorkeling equipment can be rented at Baby Beach).
