Oranjestad

— 7 nights
When vacationing on Aruba, don't miss taking a tour of Oranjestad, the capital of the small Caribbean island.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Boca Cataavlina and Mangel Halto Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Donkey Sanctuary Aruba and Rancho la Ponderosa Day Horseback Riding Tours. Explore Oranjestad's surroundings by going to San Nicolas (San Nicolas Community Museum & Baby Beach). There's still lots to do: Head underground at Guadirikiri Caves, tour the pleasant surroundings at Malmok Beach, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and explore the striking landscape at Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations.

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.
