Aruba’s Got Something For Everyone



This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Aruba Tourism Authority. All opinions are 100% mine.

On a recent cruise, our ship stopped in Aruba for a day, and we were totally blown away by this tropical paradise! While I've visited dozens of islands in the Caribbean before, none of them could hold a candle to Aruba.

Whether you're a foodie, the adventure type, or a beach bum, Aruba has everything you want at your fingertips. There was so much we wanted to do in Aruba, we knew we'd have to come back for a week-long vacation in the future.

The first thing you notice about Aruba is how stunning their beaches are. Fringing turquoise Caribbean waters, kissed by the sun and cooled by constant trade winds, Aruba’s beaches include wide shaded expanses, quiet retreats, and busy sunbathing and water sports meccas. 

Snorkeling here was out of this world, some of the clearest water and most colorful marine life I've ever encountered. Next time, I plan on going scuba diving, as I've heard that Aruba has some really great diving spots (reefs, wrecks, etc). I might even try wakeboarding, even though I've never done it before.

Foodies like me have no shortage of options when visiting Aruba, as there's an abundance of restaurants to choose from, with menus as diverse as you can possibly imagine. Classical delicacies such as frogs' legs, duck, venison, foie gras and chateaubriand join fresh Caribbean catch such as mahi-mahi and wahoo, Argentinean churrasco, Middle Eastern shoarma, Japanese sushi and teppanyaki selections, Spanish tapas, Indian curries, Caribbean jerk ribs, homemade pastas, USDA choice steaks, Maine lobster and local goat stew and keshi yena.

Indeed, the tiny island nation of Aruba provides an impressive world culinary tour rivaling the most cosmopolitan of cities.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg, there are so many other things for you to do while visiting Aruba. If you're the adventurous type, consider visiting during Carnival (which runs from November 11th until Good Friday). If you like taking in the sights, there are plenty of natural wonders to check out. Or you can just soak in the rays and enjoy the white sandy beaches.

Sounds like a dream destination, right? Visit Aruba travel at and see all that's available for you to do. And be sure to leave us a comment below, telling us what you want to check out in Aruba!
