Spanish Lagoon Location:
The starting point for your kayak tour is located on the banks of the Spanish Lagoon. Not far from the site of Aruba’s first historic capital “Savaneta.” This area was the first large trading port established during Dutch colonization in the early 1600’s.
Some believe that during the Spanish occupation, all three ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao) belonged to Venezuela. While the Spanish base was in Coro, the shortest route to Aruba would end in Savaneta. This is where the Dutch Commander resided and keep track of all trades, making it an important area during that time.
Aruba Kayak Site Location History:
The Spanish Lagoon has its own historical background. Many believe it served as a well-hidden port for the infamous pirates of the Caribbean. The lagoon is thickly lined with Red Mangrove trees. This is the most common species of the mangrove trees found in the Savaneta area Aruba. They are easily be identified by their dense network of roots, that provides the tree with support and protection. Often extending directly down into the water.
These mangroves serve as a nursery for juvenile marine life and is important resource for the local fisheries. Because Aruba is mostly made of limestone, which is highly soluble and therefore vulnerable to coastal erosion. These trees end up protecting the islands sandy coastal areas.
