ARUBA – Skip the neckties and coffee mugs for dad this year. Instead, give him what he really wants – time away with his family.
A vacation rental during Father’s Day weekend is a great way to bring all the comforts of home to your vacation destination. Aruba is the perfect island for dad’s big weekend because there is so much to do- or not to do, if he’s the quiet type.
“When you come to Aruba, you don’t have to have your entire trip mapped out,” said Matthew Smillie, owner of Aruba Villa Vacation Homes, which specializes in planning golf vacations. “When you choose a beach villa in Aruba you can spend quality time together while deep sea fishing or having a picnic on the beach. It’s up to dad how much or how little he wants to do.”
Things for dad and the family to do in Aruba:
- Spa day
For busy dads, you must indulge him to relax in an Aruba spa, the Aruba vacation rentals expert said. But if spas aren’t his style, a massage therapist can come to your vacation rental, which dad will probably prefer, as he won’t have to leave the comfort of his Aruba accommodation.
If dad enjoys fishing, nothing compares to what you can catch in the temperate waters of the Atlantic, said Smillie. Game fish that dad can catch include sailfish, wahoo, white and blue marlin, shark, barracuda, amberjack, kingfish, bonito, and the most prized of all: black and yellow fin tuna. You can hire a private boat for a full or half-day tour, which includes an experienced captain and his crew of fishing experts.
For dads who like to relax by the ocean or snorkel along the shore, Aruba’s beaches are the ideal low-key destination. There are many beaches to choose from that range from crowded tourist beaches to private secluded islands, which are perfect for mom and dad to slip away to for a relaxing picnic, while the kids visit a museum or bird sanctuary.
- Superb restaurants
Treat dad to a delicious brunch or dinner at some of the island’s freshest and finest restaurants. Several of the island’s restaurants offer a variety of meals and dishes that are caught right off the coast of Aruba. During your food journey you will come across some of the most innovative cuisines along with impeccable beer and wine selections that can please any palate.
If dad is a golf fanatic, Aruba’s courses are sure to please. Designed by renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones II, Tierra del Sol is the only 18-hole championship golf course on the island. The course offers a full-length practice range, putting greens, chipping areas and a gorgeous clubhouse with a restaurant and swimming pool.
Father’s Day is a special day that honors the most important man in the world and celebrating on the island of Aruba is a wonderful experience that is like no other.
