Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins Tours

1 Review
The desert interior of the Caribbean island of Aruba is never more interesting than when visiting the Bashiribana Gold Mill Ruins. Set among the stark beauty of the Aruban desert and the blue Caribbean sky, the ruins are the stone remains of an old gold smelter.

Established by gold prospectors hundreds of years ago and once considered sacred by the Arawak Indians, this is a serene and unexpected step into the history of Aruba and a great exploratory photo opportunity for those that love history, desert beauty or just good old-fashioned exploration.

Practical Info

Located on the eastern coast of Aruba in the area known as “Ayo,” the Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins are free to visit and explore.
