This is beautiful at sunrise. Light a candle and enjoy the piece. Don’t let the Aruban dogs bother you. They just watch out for the place. Say a prayer in thanks for being in paradise. Then go to the natural bridge and Hooiberg. You don’t...More

We visited the St. Franciscus Church and when we approached the chapel we found a hand full of worshipers praying while listening to a melodic offering of 'Ava Marie' sung by local musician/guitar player. The chance scene was beautiful.

Went to the mass which was not in English so we not really able to participate. Would have rather gone to the English mass but the timing didn't work for us.

Very neat building that we stopped by during our guided tour. I went inside and said a prayer. There were people in the parking lot selling food, beverages, and souvenirs. Another place you only need about 10 minutes at.

I am not sure when they have service. I think any hotel or concierge down there will get you the right info. God bless you!
