Sitting in front of my laptop nostalgic about my traveling days, I decided to make you a list of reasons why you should visit Aruba (if you haven’t already!). Not that you should need any convincing because let’s face it, Aruba is a beautiful and happy island. But in case you’re doubtful or you have never heard about what Aruba is all about then keep reading.
This small island is full of incredible views, delicious food, and some pretty incredible people ready to make your experience one of a kind. Of course, it should go without saying that anytime you plan to travel outside of your area you should take the necessary precautions. Aruba for instance does require a PCR test within 72 hours of your travel date to be able to enter the island.
Eagle Beach was named by Trip Advisor as the 7th best beach in the world! This beautiful white sandy beach is a must-visit on the island. All around the island, you will find incredible beaches and amazing views to spend the day sun-tanning and enjoying a delicious cocktail.
Pink Flamingos are a must-visit especially if you stay at the Renaissance Hotel. They have a private Flamingo Beach where for just 25 cents you can feed the flamingos living on the island. There are bungalows with a private butler to make your time here even more memorable. In our last visit, Gregory was our butler and he was just incredible making sure we enjoyed our time in the island.
Arikok National Park
Did you know?
Nearly 20% of Aruba is a designated National Park and home to a long list of animal species and plant life.Aruba.com
Arikok National Park is a great place to spend a day exploring a side of the island. There are some incredible caves you can explore, breathtaking views, and nature walks to secluded bays.
One happy island means happy people! People in Aruba are incredibly nice and genuine. They go out of their way to please visitors and they love to celebrate with you, this is one of the many things I loved about the island. They also speak many languages because of their mixed ancestry which they try to preserve. It was such a wonderful experience everywhere we went on the island meeting incredible people and most importantly for women traveling alone, feeling safe.
Food, Food, Food
And last but just as important, my favorite part of any travel adventure, FOOD! Aruba has some delicious, fresh, and mouthwatering seafood. I always look to try the local places, you will love them. One of my favorites was Zeerovers. The price was incredible and the view while dining by the ocean just made it even better. All the little bars around the beaches had some incredible drinks, food, and of course amazing customer service.
Visiting Aruba was the perfect vacation I didn’t know I needed during these difficult times. Are you planning to visit Aruba?
