Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya’! Sound familiar? I think the Beach Boys knew a thing or two about ultimate travel destinations! With a rainy Memorial Day coming up, I think I could handle a nice beach vacation to Aruba – how about you?
Because I am always looking up the next best place to visit (and boy do I have a list), I wanted to see what Aruba has to offer. I was amazed at how Aruba has something to offer nearly every type – the foodie (yes please!), adventure type, or a beach bum. Aruba is attributed to being One Happy Island, and I am inclined to think it’s true.
Aside from the cultural melting pot, which always fascinates me, I would be happy with a leisurely horseback ride on the beach, oodles of shopping with prices at 10-35% lower than the United States, and of course….the restaurant scene! The high-rise strip is home to over 100 resort and independent restaurants. I could live there I think! Then there is the beaten path with some local favorites that would be a must to try out. Sometimes it’s the hole-in-the-wall places that blow me away with the flavors and combinations! I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to try the Caribbean delicacies such as frog legs and venison, but perhaps I could toughen up and try the duck or foie gras. I love me some good food and I’ll be they know how to prepare it right in Aruba!
Let’s not forget the attractions and turqoise Caribbean waters! I would absolutely love to try kitesurfing, parasailing and snorkeling. I’d never complain about some sunbathing in a place like that either. Be sure to check out aruba.com to see all they have to offer in the way of Aruba travel.
