This is a very interesting structure and an important part of Aruba's history. I wish they had a diagram of the original plan so we could see what it was like in operation. As it is today it is a fairly tricky climb for those...More

If you can handle a hot long day, You will pretty much see it all with the full day tour. If you go for the half day, I like the first option with the Natural Pool.
