Destination Aruba: What to See, What to Do

With its near-perfect weather and legendary white-sand beaches, Aruba is a true destination wedding paradise. Not only does this blissful island offer some of the most picturesque landscapes in the Caribbean, but it is also filled with a variety of exciting activities and notable landmarks. With so much to see and do, your biggest challenge will be how to fit everything in during your visit to this “One Happy Island!”

Discover the Caribbean

The Caribbean Sea is Aruba’s very own playground! From catamarans and sailboats to antique pirate ships and glass-bottom boats, you can choose from a variety of adventures. And if you simply want to soak up that powdery-white sand and calm, warm water, post up on  Palm Beach for a day of sunbathing or enjoy a sunset dinner for two.

Explore the Arikok National Park

  • Although Aruba is most known for its pristine beaches, the countryside offers the opportunity for a memorable encounter with nature and wildlife. Take a jeep or ATV Safari tour to explore the Arikok National Park, which is home to popular hiking trails, gold mines and several species that only exist in Aruba.

Visit the Butterfly Farm

  • An essential part of any visit to Aruba, the Butterfly Farm is a beautiful sanctuary full of exotic flowers and breathtaking butterflies. Be sure to take the famous guided tour to learn all about their evolutionary cycle. You might even get a butterfly to land on you!

Experience the Carubbian Festival

Happening every Thursday night in San Nicolas (Aruba’s “Sunrise City”), is the Carubbian Festival, a necessary experience for any visitor of the island. This multicultural showcase is a prime spot to enjoy the diverse cuisine from the region and to see local entertainers parade through the streets chock-full of local craft booths and activities for the entire family!
