Wish Your Cares Away

Tourists won't find many wishing wells or coin fountains in the Caribbean, but they will find the Wish Rock Garden. An entire mile of Aruba's northern shoreline is reserved for this unusual geology display designed by tourists for tourists.

While the countless stacks of rocks lying on the beach may look like they've been placed there by nature, they're actually personally placed by tourists in need of some granted wishes. A walking tour or personal drive can keep the family or group entertained with this outdoor activity for hours.

Choose the amount of loose, flat rocks desired and begin stacking. Each rock reflects a single wish. The higher the stack, the more the elements challenge the success. If the stack topples, the wishes are lost to sea.
