Ayo Rock Formation

By: jomosoft Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

2:29 pm - Man, it was hot out here today. After touring the neat caves, I went after the cache. I tried the wrong way at first, bushwacking through scrub brush only to reach an impass. I finally figured out I had to go around, then had to carefully avoid the cacti. I was getting quite tired, but I eventually found it. By this time everyone was starting to wonder where I was. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Tierra del Sol

4:26 pm - I found this one quickly, but then made my Dad find it on his own. [}:)] TNLNSL. Thanks!

Haystack Aruba

By: DJ and CAL Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Regular

6:04 pm - We left this one for the end of a the day. It was cooler and I even convinced my parents to come. We all made it to the top. There was a guy actually running up and down the stairs. I think he did 4 trips. One was enough for us. I was quite winded for some time up there.
We had some great views from up here including our cruise ship far away. The cache was tough to find and I'm surprised I eventually found it. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Caves 54

By: Alex, Audrey & Bruno Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

11:40 am - We enjoyed the drive along the beach here. We parked high and then walked down to the cache. Anne slipped on a rock and bruised her knee, but that's generally expected to happen at least once while on vacation. Being from New Hampshire, we were surprised to find a NH highway token in the cache, the first of many we would find today. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Aruba Wind 2

By: DDewhurst Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

3:47 pm - This was the first cache of the day that my parents had visited when they visited Aruba. They couldn't quite remember when it was though - sometime between 1 year and 5 years ago. It was actually Feb 5, 2004.
I managed to find the cache without a cacti incident like my mother. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Grapefields Cache

By: Judy & Jacques Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

10:28 am - Hey, this was a really cool spot. It also gave us a chance to do some offroading in our jeep. TNLNSL. Thanks for pointing out this place!

The Other Lighthouse

By: A Pelican Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

9:53 am - Nice hide. We toured the island and stopped here first. It took a bit of climbing around before we found it. It was just us and the banana bus here at the time. TNLNSL. Thanks!

Natural Bridge

By: -Team Family Affair Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

2:47 pm - Well, this is more of an unnatural bridge now, but that didn't stop dozens of tourists from coming to see it. The whole island seemed pretty quiet until we got here. Got the picture, stopped in the tourist trap and got away to see more of the island. Thanks!

4:38 pm - Beware of the time-share salespoeople! Otherwise, a nice spot. Thanks!

Wish Rock Garden

By: Steve White Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

4:12 pm - Holy moly, that's a lot of wishrocks! Some of our group went to the water while Dad and I went for the cache. TNLNSL. Thanks!

miami freedom tower

By: miami news Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

11:05 am - Hey, whadda ya know, the tower is still there! Nice historic spot. We had a few hours to kill before our ship left, so we took a walk across the bridge and around downtown. Thanks for the touring spot.
