"Allow your senses to be captivated on journey through one of the most spectacular islands in the Caribbean. On the Aruba Highlights tour, you will experience the best of what the magnificent island has to offer. You will begin by visiting the renowned Aloe Vera Factory and Museum. Aloe plays a significant role in the history of Aruba, as the quaint country was once the largest exporter of Aloe in the world and two-thirds of the island was once covered in Aloe plants. Your tour will continue as you visit one of Aruba’s gorgeous natural wonders, the Casibari Rock Formations. The rock formation is comprised of a cluster of huge rocks that inexplicably rise up from the desert soil to create an unusual setting. The next stop on your tour will be at the Natural Bridge, a formation of coral limestone, which has been cut by years of pounding surf. Until its collapse in 2005, it was one of the largest natural spans in the world, standing at 23 feet above sea level and spanning more than 100 feet across. Not far from the Natural Bridge is the gorgeous Alto Vista Chapel, which was built on the site of the first Catholic Church, constructed in Aruba and it is certainly a stunning site to see. The final stop on your tour will take you to the famous California Light House, which was named after a ship called California, which has the distinction of having received the distress signals from the Titanic as she went down. This area offers some of the most picturesque views in all of Aruba. "
