The next stop will be at the Ayo or Casibari rock formations, clusters of giant rock boulders. Here you can also see some of the rock paintings made by the island's first settlers, the Arawaks. The Casibari rock formation provides visitors with a easy trail on top of its largest boulder where you have a panoramic view of Aruba. Next, you will visit the Bushiribana gold mill ruins. Constructed during Aruba's gold rush era by the Aruba Gold Concessions company, the gold mill operated for 10 years. Now its ruins became an iconic landmark on Aruba's northern coast.

Take a tour of one of the oldest aloë factories in the world. After the factory tour, you will have time to shop for many of the aloë products made in the factory. After seeing Aruba's most famous attraction, you will be dropped back off at your hotel.
