Sightseeing & History

Alto Vista Chapel

The Chapel at Alto Vista is one of Aruba’s most precious landmarks. The name of the chapel and the surrounding neighborhood comes from the Spanish phrase for “high view”. Originally built in 1750 by Domingo Antonio Silvestre the tiny church was used on a daily basis for more than three decades.

Arikok National Park

Explore the vast, surreal outback to discover the unique flora and fauna, cacti forests, rock formations, dry riverbeds, and scenic surfside vistas. Maps, information, and guided tours (reservations only) are available at the visitor center.

Arid, rocky, prickly, scrubby, and almost otherworldly, this island’s interior is often a surprise for those expecting the lush foliage and verdant rainforests of other tropical isles. But it has its own terrestrial treasures; you just have to know where to look!


Take the road less traveled, or go off-road entirely to discover Aruba’s unique interior, offbeat activities, soul-soothing secret spots, phenomenal natural wonders, and topsy-turvy topography.

Join a local expert in exploring Aruba’s rich culture, history, food, monuments and more. Aruba Walking Tours offers a two and a half hour local history adventure on foot. The experience will take you to over 30 amazing sites in downtown Oranjestad. Listen to the local expert share fascinating stories on the island’s rich history and culture.
