My husband and I rented a car and went exploring. We'd previously toured the Casibari Rock Formations as part of a tour group and enjoyed climbing the different boulders (they ain't rocks!!!). So we drove to Ayo and were disappointed to find a gate across the entranced and looking very abandoned. We skirted the gate and went exploring. Several boulders prevented us from climbing/seeing from the high boulders which is probably why it isn't really opened to the public (or maybe it was closed for the season???) If you like this type of thing it is worth the trip. We were there about 30 minutes.

For an island that seemingly is relatively flat except for a small 'mountain' - more like a very large hill - these huge rock formations were obviously an abnormality and a natural wonder to see. They just appear out of nowhere, and are beautiful to look at and admire. You can climb the rocks with some easy stairways built into the formations, for some awesome views of the island. There are public restrooms there, plus a bar/pub across the street that serves beer/etc and a couple of gift shops.

Huge, giant rocks that can be climbed through a series of stairs. When you reach the top of Casibari the views of the whole city are amazing.

Casibari and Ayo are not the same rock formation so this attraction listed together may be a little misleading.

Casibari - our first stop, was a mountain and you had to climb a series of uneven stairs to get to the top. The top of the rock formation is pretty flat and you can get a good view of the island from the top.

Ayo - had multiple giant rock formations and was not as commercialized as Casibari. You can walk around the rock formation and climb into it a little if you are interested. There were figurines of animals around the park which makes a good photo op..

We were on the Banana Bus tour and this was our first stop. We didn't climb to the top of the rocks because it was very hot out.
We had a drink from the bar there and used the restroom. Make sure you have a $1.00 if you need to use the restroom
