Aruba is the smallest of the island-trio known as ABC (Aruba, Bonair, Curaçao) and, beyond any doubt, the most cosmopolitan and beautiful one. Fancy boutiques, world class restaurants and luxurious resort hotels are harmoniously combined with magnificent pristine beaches and wild nature, offering a unique experience to anyone visiting Aruba.
Contrary to the rest of the Netherlands Antilles, Aruba gained its independence from the Netherlands in 1986, however it remains an autonomous entity of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Today, Aruba’s population consists of at least 60 different nationalities; its great historical heritage is evident throughout the island, from the capital, Oranjestad, to further across Aruba.
A visit to Aruba is a visit to heaven! Would you miss it?
Aruba’s international airport (Internationale luchthaven Koningin Beatrix) is located in Oranjestad, Aruba’s capital and can be reached by bus.
Getting around Aruba
You can get around Aruba using the island’s extensive bus network. Fares start at 2.30 AWG and minimum taxi fare costs 10.74 AWG.
Your day in Aruba begins at Oranjestad, capital and largest city of the island.
Oranjestad’s architecture is a blend of dutch and baroque elements with the light colours of the Caribbean, making up an overly idyllic background.
In Oranjestad you’ll come across, apart from the majority of the island’s population, a great variety of restaurants, clubs and hotels, a picturesque port full of yachts, cruise ships and fishing boats and most of the island’s entertainment choices.
While you’re there, be sure to visit the Archaeological Museum of Aruba, housed in a beautiful historic building. This museum presents Aruba’s indigenous history and heritage, featuring collections of ceramics, equipment, artefacts and archaeological items of the region, focusing on archaeology, anthropology and history.
Within short distance, you can enjoy some of Aruba’s most beautiful beaches.
Heading west of Oranjestad, you’ll notice that buildings become shorter; it’s actually forbidden by law for buildings to have above three or four floors.
In an atmosphere fairly different than that of Oranjestad, more relaxed and laid back, endless stripes of beach extend before your eyes; it’s difficult to tell apart the one from the other, so the whole area is known as the Eagle Beach.
A few kilometres north, hotels immediately rise high once again; so do prices! This is Aruba’s most luxurious and cosmopolitan side, but also the most interesting, in terms of nature and scenery.
As you’re taking a swim at the Palm Beach, you can notice a tremendous amount of bird and lizard species and it’s worth remembering that the palm trees you see lining the beach date back to 1917!
20% of Aruba consists of forests and diverse ecosystems. At Arikok National Park’s hills, numerous microclimates have created a hospitable niche for indigenous birds and reptiles. The park, accessible solely by a hiking path, is also decorated with indigenous Aruban works of art and artefacts of the past.Aruba’s official languages are Dutch and Papiamento.
To enter Aruba, you need to have a passport, valid up until 6 months after your travel dates. Greek citizens do not need a Visa, for a maximum stay of 30 days.
When to Go
Weather in Aruba is always pleasant. Temperatures remain high but not too high, due to frequent cool breezes, downpours are scarce and, above all, the Netherlands Antilles are outside the tropical monsoon zone, meaning no thunderstorms and no hurricanes!
That being said, you can enjoy a trip to Aruba any time of the year.
