Where to Eat, Go and Party in the One Happy Island of Aruba
It’s your home away from home—literally. Aruba serves as the ideal nuptial nest for honeymooners, Soul Beach Music festival goers, or a group of girlfriends alike. Few places on the planet can match Aruba for its sheer diversity, and quality of options. With little history of racial or cultural conflicts, the island has no cause for animosity. As the license plates say, it’s “One Happy Island.”
And beaches? Aruba boasts some of the best in the Caribbean, some say in the world for that matter. With so many options to offer, the only real question is where to start? Although Aruba can be a bit pricey, check out our picks to help you plan your next trip (within a reasonable budget)!
De Palm Tours
Are you down for an adventure? For romantic sunset sails, sightseeing in a luxury air-conditioned bus, wild jeep rides, underwater snorkeling, Atlantis submarines tours, Sea Trek, SNUBA, and splashing, sliding water park fun. De Palm is your personal activity guru. One of the best ways to view the island is by taking a 4×4 tour. The tours will allow you to see parts of Aruba that lie off the beaten track, like the rugged north coast of the island. Why not add some spice to your trip?

Outside of snorkeling and diving, sailing is probably the most popular activity in Aruba. Why not wind down a sunset cruise along Aruba’s scenic coastline?
