About

Step back in time and discover the natural rock formations in Aruba. Pathways are in place to better explore these ancient sites.

For such a relatively flat island, the presence of the unusual hills and huge monolithic boulders in Aruba are truly an enigma.

There are two mystical giants open for you to climb and explore: the Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations.

These remarkable natural wonders add aesthetics to the landscape, as well as provide excellent vantage points from which to better view the island.


Ayo Rock Formations

Ayo Rock Formations' towering stone boulders create a sense of awe, and an understanding of why the area was once considered a sacred site by the island's original inhabitants. You can even find original rock drawings here, dating back thousands of years. The Ayo rock formations in Aruba are a must-see if you’re interested in history, nature and cultural heritage. 

Casibari Rock Formations

Casibari Rock Formations’ huge tonalite boulders sit together in a residential area, just off the main road to Santa Cruz. Walking trails and steps through the boulders allow hikers to reach the top to obtain breathtaking 360 views. What’s more, there is also free Wi-Fi available here. And if you want to satisfy your appetite after climbing the hills, you’ll find the BBQ Bar & Grill offering snacks, cold drinks and shaded seating. The Casibari Rock Formations in Aruba are a wonderful active getaway during your relaxing or adventurous holiday.
