When someone says I want to party all night and lay on the beach all day, where do I go? I say look no further than Aruba. You can even throw in a fun day excursion to the untamed countryside.
Aruba’s lively nightlife is fun for everyone and has earned the title of Las Vegas of the Caribbean. They have a bunch of casinos that vary their closing times, and some are even open 24 hours. Did you know that Aruba claims to be the founder of many table games including Caribbean Stud Poker? Not only do they have gaming Aruba also has live shows, live bands, discos and movable parties. The DJ’s will have all kinds of music flowing in the clubs including rap, rock and roll, reggae, and even merengue. The legal age for drinking and gambling is 18, so have your id ready.
After partying the night away, the next day you will want to sit and relax on one of Aruba’s iconic beaches. Aruba has some of the best beaches in all of the Caribbean. The calmest beaches and the most crowded beaches are on the west side, and that’s where the resorts are. The east side is less crowded, however the tides and tradewinds can be strong especially in the afternoon. The northeast side of the island has the rocky beaches and they are not very good for swimming. Eagle and Palm Beach are on the northwest side of Oranjestad and are a favorite of tourists because of its powdery white sand. Druif Beach is in the heart of the resort area so it tends to be less crowded with cruise ship passengers if you are staying on the island. If you are looking for a secluded and quiet beach, look no further than Rogers Beach in San Nicolas at Seroe Colorado.
Don’t forget to go visit the California Lighthouse. The California Lighthouse is one Aruba’s most famous icons. Visitors flock to this icon for amazing views of the iconic coastline.
