Oranjestad

— 7 nights
When vacationing on Aruba, don't miss taking a tour of Oranjestad, the capital of the small Caribbean island.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Boca Cataavlina and Donkey Sanctuary Aruba. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Malmok Beach, look for gifts at Shiva's Gold & Gems, step aboard Antilla Shipwreck, and explore the gorgeous colors at Malmok Reef.

For maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Oranjestad driving holiday planner.

Orlando, USA to Oranjestad is an approximately 10-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Orlando to Oranjestad due to the time zone difference. In February, Oranjestad is somewhat warmer than Orlando - with highs of 87°F and lows of 76°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) early enough to 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.
