Aruba is 15 miles from the coast of Venezuela. It is a tourist destination in the Caribbean and has a high rate of repeat customers. Due to the hospitality and friendliness of the Aruba people, this tourist attraction attracts many tourists back to the hotels on the island. In addition to the exquisite natural beauty of Aruba, the indigenous people of Aruba have always been proud of these qualities.
Island adventure is a favorite activity of many tourists on Aruba, because the island has amazing diverse landscapes, unique topography, desert interiors, beaches on the leeward coast, and coastlines with cliffs and inlets.
Near the road to St. Nicholas, there are the famous beaches of Mangel Halto and Savaneta. These beaches are famous for their mangrove-covered lagoons, canals and small bridges. The lagoon extends to the sea, making these places attract many snorkelers. Other Aruba landmarks passing through St. Nicholas include the half-century Lago Oil Refinery, coral anchors, sandy, half-moon-shaped Baby Beach, and pink and white Rogers Beach.
Arikok National Park is another adventurous place for tourists. This park has three geological attractions-lava, limestone and quartz diorite formations. The Arikok granite in the park also shows signs of the earliest island inhabitants, such as a thousand-year-old picture of the Kaktio Indians. Therefore, these rocks make Arikok a historical magnet for tourists.
Arikok includes Mount Jamanota, the highest peak of Aruba. This mountain has underground Indian caves, always attracting landed explorers. Caribbean wildlife on this mountain, such as cat-eye snakes, burrowing owls, Aruba parakeets, whiptail lizards and iguanas, also attract many tourists. Many species can be seen in the park, especially iguanas, migratory birds, donkeys and goats grazing in the mountains. Akikok is also a refuge for desert vegetation, including rare and exotic types. Examples include cacti, divi-divi trees, tropical flowers and aloe plants. Along the coast near Arikok, there are limestone cliffs and sand dunes. These are the darlings of photographers and earth lovers.
Other historical sites in Aruba include Cunucu Arikok, Miralamar Masiduri and Hofi Fontein. Cununu is a restored farm made from grass and clay adobe. It reproduces the early life of Aruba. Miralamar is a 20th century trench and gold mine complex, and Masiduri is an experimental garden in 1950. On the other hand, Hofi Fontein is the only area on the northern coast of Aruba with fresh water springs. Many Chinese immigrants grow vegetables in this place, which is why it has a Chinese name.
Due to turbulent waves and strong countercurrents, swimming on the windward side of the island is never recommended. However, the many Aruba beaches on the Wild Coast provide such a wonderful experience. Island hotels are usually located near bays made of limestone cliffs, because these places are either great for sunbathers and picnic lovers like Dos Playa, or windsurfers like Boca Grandi. In addition, compared with other parts of Aruba, tourists stay at hotels on these islands more often because this natural pool is protected by large rocks from the rough sea and decorated by native sea turtles.
