Oranjestad

— 7 nights
When vacationing on Aruba, don't miss taking a tour of Oranjestad, the capital of the small Caribbean island.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Eagle Beach and Baby Beach. Step out of Oranjestad with an excursion to San Nicolas Community Museum in San Nicolas--about 30 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: stroll through Palm Beach, explore the striking landscape of Arikok National Park, experience rural life at The Butterfly Farm, and take in the dramatic natural features at Natural Pool.

To see reviews, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Oranjestad road trip planning site.

Toronto, Canada to Oranjestad is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Atlantic Standard Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Toronto in August, with highs in Oranjestad at 92°F and lows at 81°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) so you can travel back home.

Happy Island
A Dutch outpost in the Caribbean, sun-drenched Aruba provides a mix of modern seaside resorts and quiet coastal areas ideal for those wishing to escape the crowds. Vacations in Aruba, known affectionately as the "Happy Island," generally combine water-based activities with tours of the untamed backcountry, where you can discover unusual rock formations, historic churches, ostrich farms, and animal sanctuaries. Island capital Oranjestad offers some of the finest shopping and cultural sightseeing in Aruba, with an eco-friendly electric streetcar providing quick access to all of the city's major attractions, including numerous shops, restaurants, and hotels.
