The beaches are great. Other than that there is not really that much to do on the island. It is not like going to Cuba where you feel like you are somewhere unique. It is very Americanized, restaurants and nightlife are geared towards the Americans. If you just want to relax, enjoy the beach, do some water sports, eat and drink, then it is very good for that. Just be aware that everything is very expensive, you will end up spending $100 for a main and glass of wine for 2 people, you can end up spending over $150 for a 3 course meal which I think is a robbery for the standard of food your receive.<br />

We had a great time in Aruba but glad we went all inclusive because it would be really expensive if we had not. Aruba is a very clean island and is very safe to walk about in. The best Carribean Island we have been to so far, will definitely go back. You can also drink tap water in Aruba, they have drinking facilities all along the beach which are very handy!

Windsurfers and kitesurfers head for Andicuri Beach, Boca Grandi and Hadicurari Beach or, for snorkeling, the waters off of De Palm Island and Baby Beach are popular.
Things to Do
Popular visitor attractions include the Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins and the Aruba Aloa Museum where guided tours offer interesting historic and cultural information.
The Butterfly Farm is set in tropical gardens full of colour and offers a relaxed environment. Or for the more energetic, there are hiking trails through the natural landscapes of the Arikok National Park.
Out and About
Downtown Oranjestad offers excellent shopping, from designer boutiques to a wide choice of locally hand-crafted products and the colourful streets of distinctive Dutch architecture provide an attractive setting.
The cities of Oranjestad and San Nicolas host mini festivals each week where you can experience the colour and calypso sounds associated with Caribbean carnivals.
Where ever you stay in Aruba, the beaches, natural attractions and activities in other resorts are never far away as the island is just 32km wide and 8km long.
