The rocks at Ayo and other granite boulder fields of today are really fascinating. Aruba sits on the edge of the South American plate where the Caribbean plate dives under it, and has caused volcanic dikes to pierce the overlying South American plate, rise to the surface.
The favorite sport on the island depends on whom you ask. The locals love soccer and baseball. The tourists love sun tanning, shopping and windsurfing. Why?
Because of the constant Trade Winds and the relatively flat water. The Windsurf Village on Aruba is a great place to camp out with the camera. Many top professionals of the world stay and practice right in front of the Village.
Most all the hotels have windsurfing included in their water sports packages. Just ask. Or rent a board and get some instruction from The Windsurf Village.
We love snorkeling. There are more than a few great spots. Ask your hotel concierge about Baby Beach, Malmok and Boca Grandi. The scuba shops around town and at the hotels will also have directions to the best locations.
