Aruba in 2 days
This is where luxury and beauty come together. Aruba Palm Beach offers a white sand beach with turquoise waters and exclusive tourist infrastructure. This can also be your base for taking a number of very interesting excursions and enjoying a wide range of sports and leisure activities.
Spend your morning on Palm Beach and prepare to enjoy yourself. Full of life and very entertaining, Palm Beach offers a variety of activities for those visitors who are looking for something other than sunbathing. Whether you want to take a stroll under the coconut trees, swim in the clear waters or do some water sports, Aruba Palm Beach has a bit of everything. At lunchtime, don’t miss the excellent buffet available at your Hotel Riu Palace, and then relax by the pool.
When the hottest hours of the day have passed, head for the Bubali Bird Sanctuary. Take a wander around this protected natural area full of unique bird-watching opportunities. Make the most of your visit and go to the Butterfly Farm, where you will find lots of information about the evolution and development of these fascinating creatures. If you would rather find out about Aruba’s history, a good plan is to go to Fort Zoutman. This fort and tower now house a museum covering the early history and development of Aruba.
The natural pool known as the Cura di Tortuga, in the north of the island, is a stunning spot nobody should miss. If you have the chance, bring some snorkeling equipment to watch the colorful fish underwater. Also, why not take a picnic with you so that you can stay in this amazing place a bit longer? In the afternoon you have two options: to continue exploring the island’s natural gems with a visit to the Arikok National Park, where you can enter once-inhabited caves like the Fontein and Guadirikiri; or to spend a pleasant afternoon shopping in the capital, Oranjestad, where you can find the best known international labels.
