Nice hike with my son while vacationing in Aruba (also a work conference). Good views.
In the morning, Shaylee and I took a bus to downtown and then took a taxi (there weren't many buses running on this day) to the Casibari Rock Formations. They were really neat, sort of like a mini Joshua Tree area.
After exploring the rocks we walked to Hooiberg. We climbed the steep staircase to the top. It was hot, but it was also cloudy and it rained a bit. The rain was actually refreshing. The views from the summit were really nice.
After climbing Hooiberg, we walked around the mountain and through the waterpark and to the main highway south of the peak. We waited for a bus, but finally someone picked us up and gave us a ride into town. We went snorkeling in the afternoon.
