Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations, Aruba

4.1
#5 of 15 in Nature in Aruba
Climb to observe the mysterious rock formations at Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations. Scientists are unsure how the rock formations formed on a flat, arid island, but they speculate that the sea’s previously high levels aided in their formation. At the two locations you can view large, oddly shaped boulders that resemble birds and dragons. Nearby, look for ancient carvings to observe. Cacti surround the rocks and many lizards and birds can be viewed. Restrooms are available for a fee.

  • Loved the climb to the top. For some reason, it reminded me a little of Sedona? A great stop, photo opps, just a cool natural spot. I'd visit again.  more »
  • These are 2 separate locations but about 15 minute drive apart. They are both exposed so wear protection from the sun. Casibari has steps up to the top so is easier to climb and has spectacular views ...  more »
  • Spent about an 1 1/2 hours at this very nice rock formation. It is a steep climb going to the top, but is worth it for the view. The mini park is well maintained and you will see alot of iguanas layin...  more »

  • Interesting formation. Great views. Free with no one hounding you to buy stuff.
  • Whichever way you criss-cross the island, you cannot miss it. And it's a well spent half an hour break.
  • Pretty interesting spot to stop by. You get some good views of the city and a nice quiet area to eat and take pictures. Its not a hard walk to the top but still fun.
  • Interesting stop. Good views from top of formation. Wear sensible shoes, walk down is kinda steep. There is not much here so takes less than 30 minutes. Unexpectedly, there was free WiFi here. Also, this is one of the few places where you don't have to pay to use the public restrooms.
  • Awesome place to visit and it's a easy climb.
