Your bags are packed, your reservations have been made, and you are on your way to stay at the perfect Aruban Villa to enjoy your vacation on the beach! If you have not already started making plans on what to do while you are in Aruba, here are just a few ideas to get you started.

First off, show up, get your keys, take a tour and settle into your Aruba vacation rental! Everyone has a different arrival plan, but if you have got enough energy to see a bit of the town check out one of Aruba’s fine restaurants- you will find everything from casual, family-friendly dining to upscale, five star restaurants with ocean view. Once you have rested from your travels get up and start exploring the beautiful island of Aruba! Pack a snack and some water and head to Eagle Beach for a relaxing and fun day playing in the surf and soaking up the sun. If you are not in too much of a hurry to see everything on your first day, pack a lunch (and plenty of sunscreen) and watch the sun set over the beautiful Caribbean and enjoy a view you will never forget.

Head inland to explore the Arikok National Park and the interior mountains, which have amazing views of the entire island. If you are a diver you can explore the wreck of the SS Antilla, or stay on the surface and view the mesmerizing sea life of Malmok Reef. For history buffs you can walk around the Archeological Museum of Aruba and see the remnants of European settlements all around the island. If you want more fun in the sun without heading back to the beach, a trip to the Tierra del Sol Golf Course may be right up your alley. For more family-friendly fun head to the California Lighthouse which will have thrills and views for everyone to enjoy! There is also Phillip’s Animal Garden where kids (and adults) can hold reptiles and other animals to their hearts’ content.

Aruba is full of great restaurants to eat at, sites to visit and people to meet. At the end of the day you can come back to your very own Aruba villa and know that you made a great choice in picking this wonderful place for your vacation!
