take a drive thru the old "colony" in san nic.
tons of history there
lots of old and decrepit.
lots of rebirth too
i envision, once the economy gets a bit better, the rebirth will really start.
one of the taxi drivers cyrilo croes (contact him thru this forum by pm or email) is current on his history, dates, sociology and civics. he gives island tours and i recommend hiring him for a few hours. ask lots of questions and
let him lead the way.
do i know stonehenge of aruba by another name?

I am particularly interested in the ancient native cultures that may have
lived there and early European explorers.
My previsit research indicates a number of sites of this nature.
Stonehenge of Aruba
Alto Vista Chapel
Anybody can add anything to this, or their opinions of these sites would
be much appreciated.
Are there any guided tours to the outback area? An experienced guide that provides the trip to the cave area. Or is it better just to rent your own four wheel drive to go to these areas? Or better yet, are there dirt bikes one can rent?
A snorkel dive to the Antilla sounds like fun too. Anybody here done that?
I appreciate travel advice as we have to put together our itinerary soon.
Thanks Arubalisa! I am getting more excited about my visit every time I come back
back here for my replies.
I want to drive out and see the petroglyphs in the outback but need some advice. Rather
than rent a four wheel drive are there group tours out to this area. Maybe even a recommended knowledgeable guide who might know some folklore from the area?
