Oranjestad

— 7 nights
When vacationing on Aruba, don't miss taking a tour of Oranjestad, the capital of the small Caribbean island.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Gemani Jewelers Aruba and Seroe Colorado. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Baby Beach and Surfside Beach. Go for a jaunt from Oranjestad to San Nicolas to see Cosecha in San Nicolas about 30 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, explore the fascinating underground world of Guadirikiri Caves, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and enjoy the sea views from California Lighthouse.

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.
