I recently travelled to Aruba with Aruba Tourism Authority and absolutely fell in love with the island! It was truly breathtaking…from its crystal blue waters, beautiful beaches, stunning sunsets, tall palm trees to its all-year-round perfect weather.
There was so much to see and do so here are 5 of the best things to do in Aruba!
5 Best Things To Do In Aruba
- UTV Tour: I had a lot of fun driving a UTV around Aruba and stopping to visit beautiful hidden locations along the way. We did a tour with ABC Tours Aruba and it was really fun! My only recommendation is to bring goggles and a dust mask because you get really dirty and it can be hard to see while driving through a desert. This was a really fun experience but make sure to stay safe and only drive as fast as you feel comfortable!
2. Visit Renaissance Island: We took a water taxi to Renaissance Island which was absolutely breathtaking! The water is crystal blue and there are flamingos walking around (it couldn’t get more perfect)! I couldn’t stop taking pictures while I was there. It is the perfect place to spend the day relaxing on the beach, reading, swimming, or visiting the bars and restaurants that are located on the island. If you want to feed the flamingos, make sure that you bring American coins. There are also colourful iguanas on one side of the island. This is definitely a place that I will return to!3. Get an Aloe Scrub: Aruba is famous for its aloe and I had the luxury to get an aloe scrub at Eforea Spa, which is located in the Hilton Resort where I was staying. It was such a relaxing experience and it prepped my skin for the strong sun. When I travel, I love to visit the spa to allow my body and mind to fully relax and enjoy the present moment. After the massage, I was greeted with a glass of complimentary champagne which really topped off my whole experience. I would definitely recommend going to the Eforea Spa!4. Tranquilo Private Catamaran Tour: If you love sailing and being on a boat then I recommend doing the Tranquilo Private Catamaran Tour. It’s a fun way to spend half the day sailing around the island, snorkelling, swimming, or drinking rum punch. This is also a great thing to do if you are travelling with a larger group!5) Water Sports: If you like to be active while travelling then visit Vela Aruba where you can get your choice of many different water activities such as kitesurfing, windsurfing, cat sailing, SUP yoga, SUP pilates, SUP body fit, beach yoga, beach boot camp, biking or even beer yoga. There is so much to choose from that you can satisfy everyone you are travelling with!
Those are 5 of the best things to do in Aruba. I definitely recommend putting Aruba on your bucket list if it’s not already on it. Let me know in the comments if you have ever been to Aruba and what you did while staying there!
