Driving to Alta Vista Chapel, Aruba

The Alta Vista Chapel is a tranquil site to visit here in Aruba. The little building sits on a bluff overlooking the sea, perfectly proportioned and quite charming for photographs. Here’s a video showing how to drive there as well as a look inside the chapel itself. I also include a few historical notes about the site.

Alta Vista sees plenty of visitors, especially during the busy season. However, it remains an endearing site. Please treat it with respect. Bon dia.

Aruba Cemeteries

There are many cemeteries in Aruba that feature excellent statuary, fascinating crypts, and haunting images. During my extended stays on the island, I typically take a few strolls through a cemetery or two like the one shown below.

If nothing else, a trip to the cemetery reminds us that no one lives forever. Best to get those things done you’d like to while you’re still alive. Sounds like a cliche, but it’s true.
