Seroe Colorado PlaceS of Interest In front of a backdrop featuring organ pipe cacti, you’ll find the whitewashed cottages of Seroe Colorado. These cottages were originally built to accommodate oil workers, but now this area is better known for its intriguing chapel that was built in 1939. Just beyond this community is a natural bridge with hissing blowholes created by the power of the sea. Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations Very Interesting shapes, some resembling dragons and birds, lie amidst a dry desert-like landscape. These are monolithic rocks known as the Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations. Located amidst cacti and iguanas, one particular rock offers panoramic views of the island from its top. The site is known to have been used by the earliest settlers on the island, the Arawaks, who created petroglyphs during their religious ceremonies, some of which can still be seen on the boulders today.
