With the selection of accommodation, also comes a wide range of restaurants including seafood and Asian cuisine just to name a couple.  Aruba is a shopper’s paradise too with many places to shop, including outlets, collector’s shops and specialty boutiques.


Fun Fact: Aruba’s Divi-Divi trees, also known as watapanas, are famous because they are known to grow at 45-degree angles in certain parts of the island. This a result of the persistent trade winds in those areas.
