Located south of the Caribbean’s hurricane belt is the one happy island of Aruba. Why is Aruba so happy you may ask? Well, it’s hard not to be with its year-round perfect weather! Plus, its size and accessibility allow you to get the most value out of your island escape. Aruba values happiness and wants you to maximize your vacation time while on the island, so let’s take a look at a few fun things you to do while you’re there!
Deep Dive into History
If you like scuba diving, you’ll want to pay a visit to the SS Antilla, an amazing vessel that sunk during World War II. Explore its vast cabins, take in the stunning coral reefs that have grown around it, and enjoy the marine life that have made this underwater giant their home. Not into diving? If snorkeling is more your thing, you’ll also be able to see part of the wreck from the water’s surface.
Hit the Beach
When you think of a luxurious Caribbean getaway, the first thing you may imagine is a gorgeous beach to lounge on. You’ll find no shortage of those in Aruba! Opt for the popular Eagle Beach or Palm Beach and enjoy cabanas, lounge chairs, and a variety of fun activities to keep you occupied throughout the afternoon. For a more laid-back atmosphere, head to Arashi Beach and spend your day soaking in that warm, inviting sun.
You absolutely have to visit “Orange Town” during your stay in Aruba! Oranjestad is steeped in history, culture, and bright splashes of color that will instantly brighten any mood. Located on the southern coast of Aruba, this amazing town is home to bustling café’s, local markets, animal sanctuaries, museums, and more. If you’re looking for that Dutch Caribbean flare – complete with exceptional shopping, historical gems, and delicious eats – this is the place to be.
