Aruba Vacation Travel Guide
Major Attractions in Aruba
As an island-country, Aruba has no shortage of beaches. Eagle and Palm beaches are the highest rated by past visitors, as are Arashi and Manchebo. When you have had your fill of sunning and relaxation, take a scuba/snorkeling tour with Blue Melody & Black Pearl Sailing. If your idea of exploring doesn't involve you actually getting wet, why not book a submarine tour with Atlantis Submarines Expedition of De Palm Tours? Aruba vacations are not complete without a day spent on Renaissance Island. Cap off your stay with a visit to Saint Franciscus Church near Oranjestad. Aruba vacation packages can include all this and more.
Aruba Festivals and Events
Of the many varied events that take place annually in Aruba, the Aruba Carnival is perhaps most famous. The event spans several weeks. Floats and parades, contagious music and evocative dance, as well as the elections for Carnival Queen round out this annual festival. The Aruba Regatta takes place every August and hosts various sailing and kite-surfing competitions, along with beach parties that take place at 5 p.m. on the Saturday and Sunday of the event. Perhaps the most important event in Aruba, the Reef Care Project is a month-long event every September in which locals and visitors together help clean the island's beaches as a reminder to maintain the marine environment.
