Posted on 06 November 2017 by admin (0)

Located to the north of Venezuela, Aruba is a Caribbean Island and popular honeymoon resort. The island is relatively dry throughout the year and sees little rain but the scenic landscape and the sandy beaches make up for the warm climate.

Tourists all across the world visit this island to relax and kick back. But there’s a catch – it’s expensive. Accommodation, transport and food all require a good amount of cash which is why the island sees mostly tourists that are on their honeymoon or old couples that have retired.   It is expensive and having cash is important, but to just be cautious where you flash it around.

Things to See in Aruba

The island has a number of tourist destinations and spots to see. Aruba has a rich history and there are four popular museums – the Historical Museum, the Archeological Museum, the Numismatic Museum and the Aruba Model Train Museum.

Perhaps the most visited spot of Aruba is the Natural Pool (Conchi) which is a small pool of water located on the northern side of the island.

The California lighthouse, Aruba Aloe Factory, Our Lady of Alto Visto Chapel, the Donkey Sanctuary and the Ostrich farm are other tourist favorites.

Things to Do in Aruba

Aruba is home to not only scenic beauty and sightseeing destinations; it also offers a list of activities that tourists can do.

Snorkeling is by far the most popular activity on the Caribbean island. Kayaking is another must-do activity on Aruba. Some hotels offer their guests free kayaking and snorkeling equipment; the snorkeling cruise itself can cost around 90-100 USD or 160-180 AWG.

Most of the activities in Aruba are related to the beaches and the sea. These include Scuba diving, sea trekking, sailing and fishing. Golf is also loved by natives and tourists. Although the sport is expensive, it is definitely worth golfing at the Aruba Golf Club.  Tommy, who lives Upstate New York, owns an Albany roofing company, and says the golfing at the Club is second to none!!!  Definitely a place worthy of driving some balls down the fairway!!!

While public transport can bring the overall travel expenses down, the Aruban Jeep Safari and 4-wheeling tours are a must do activity on the island. Other things to do in Aruba include rock climbing, horseback riding and hiking.

The Caribbean island is known for its exquisite range of fish so if you’re planning to visit the island anytime soon, don’t forget to try out their local seafood!
