"Depending on what your..." Aruba Favorite Tip by BusTraveler

Aruba General: 95 reviews and 147 photos


Favorite thing: Depending on what your interests are here are my recommendations on what you must do in Aruba:

High Energy: Kukoo Kunuku Party Bus - Enjoy a bar-hopping tour only a whino could dream of. Includes dinner, champagne toast at sunset and your first drink at every bar stop. You'll have to wear a name tag with your hotel and room number on it so they know where to 'pour' you out when your done.

Mid Energy: Blue Melody Sunset Tour - A nice sunset sail including snorkeling and a light snack. The owners are Dutch natives and very friendly!

No Energy: Flying Fishbones - Make sure you get reservations for this restaurant whose main attraction is the sunset. Oh yeah, the food isn't too bad either.

Fondest memory: Yes, Aruba has the beautiful weather and friendly people but it's the unadorned island culture that keeps you coming back. You are welcome anywhere you travel on the island (of course don't leave your common sense at home!). The freedom to see and do things at your own pace (without the pressure to buy something) is why Aruba keeps me coming back.

    I would add the Island Safari Tour, and Bon Bini Festival to that list, for those people who are into adventure, site seeing, and culture. Sadly, most people come to Aruba for the reasons you listed above.
