Turn right out of Costa Linda’s parking lot, of course, and turn left at the Alhambra Casino intersection.  Proceed straight as far as you can go before making a left turn at the “T.”  At the circle take the first right, i.e. turning inland.  After passing a large circle, go for about a mile, and watch for Carpaccio’s on the right.  If you get to a second large circle you have gone a little too far.

DIRECTIONS TO ZEEROVERS

Charlie’s Chickee Chatter© # 27

 

Drive toward San Nicholas from Oranjestad going past the airport.  Keep going several miles until you see a sign saying you are entering Savaneta.  Look for a right slanted turn with a sign advertising the Flying Fishbone restaurant.  Take this right turn, and watch for a big statue on the right.  Zeerovers is to the left of the statue.  It is on the same road as the Flying Fishbone and the Old Man and the Sea restaurants.  The drive from Costa Linda takes about 25 minutes.

Hooiberg on your right. With Hooiberg far behind you, and as you approach the more dense traffic at Santa Cruz look for a sign for Natural Bridge which is a left turn at that point. Keep going on this road taking the first right turn after seeing the "Just Local" sign on your right. Take the first left past the rocks at Ayo. (There is a sign to the Donkey Sanctuary pointing in the other direction.) Look for the Ostrich farm on your left.

 

These directions might not be the fastest way to the ostrich farm, but shorter routes are a little harder to explain.

 

DIRECTIONS TO PHILIP’S ANIMAL GARDEN

Charlie’s Chickee Chatter© # 19

 

_02C5620.jpg 

You probably already know how to get to Alto Vista—up through Noord, left at the light with the big church on your right and then right on the road which has signs for Alto Vista.  So take all those roads just mentioned.  While you are then traveling toward Alto Vista, look for the sign to Philip’s Animal Garden which is the sign to the left of this paragraph.  Turn right, as it says.  Then very quickly you will see a sign to turn left to get to Philip’s.  Take it, and you will be there!

DIRECTIONS TO ARUBA GOLF COURSE

Charlie’s Chickee Chatter© # 14

 

Notes:  These directions do not indicate the shortest way to the golf course, but the short way is very complicated.  Remember, the golf club is closed on Mondays.

 

Drive through Oranjestad, past the airport, straight through Saveneta and San Nicholas.  At the refinery gate at the end of San Nicholas drive up the hill, take the first right and follow the signs to Seroe Colorado and Baby Beach.  Go past the prison on your left toward the big red anchor.

 

Turn left at the red anchor, and drive 2 or 3 miles with the ocean on your right.  Keep going straight until you see a road on your left which goes up a steep hill and over the cliffs.  Take it.  The road turns left after you get to the top.  Follow this road until you see the Aruba Golf Club on your right across its parking lot.

 

Getting back is a little more complicated, depending on where you want to go.  Exiting the parking lot from the golf club turn right and make your way through the Lago Heights community, eventually ending at the red anchor to go to Baby Beach or the refinery gate to go back to Costa Linda.
